Will Ferrell & Zach Galifianakis Get Close on 'The Campaign' Posters

The Campaign

In addition to those hilarious political ads featuring Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis going head-to-head in The Campaign, the new political comedy from Jay Roach, the first trailer for the film was truly a laugh riot as well. Now the first official poster for the late summer release is here, and it's pretty self-explanatory. Ferrell and Galifianakis are front and center, literally facing off, nose-to-nose. This is one of my most anticipated comedies of the year along with The Watch, and we'll likely be getting at least one more trailer, maybe a red band one if the film gets an R-rating, before the film hits theaters. Look below!

Here's the first poster for Jay Roach's The Campaign from the film's Facebook page:

And here's another one with some baby kissing action also from the film's Facebook page:

Jay Roach who has moved from comedies like Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery and Meet the Parents to HBO's political dramas like Recount and Game Change is combining his experience for The Campaign, written by Chris Henchy (The Other Guys) and Shawn Harwell ("Eastbound & Down"). The film has Will Ferrell and Zack Galifianakis as congressional rivals from the South and also features a fantastic cast including Dan Ayrkroyd, Jason Sudeikis, Brian Cox, John Lithgow, Dylan McDermott and more. The film is expected to hit theaters just a couple months before the presidential election on August 10th, 2012.

2nd one reminds me of the John Prescott baby incident where he tried to pick a baby from the crowd and use it as part of his speech. Politicians.

Will Ferrell? A couple of one-liners here and there. This guy sucks EXCEPT for Old School. Old School 2: The Pledge, what the fuck are they waiting for? "YOU'RE MY BOY BLUE!"
