Watch: First Trailer for David Gordon Green's 'Our Brand Is Crisis'
"If you want to win, we're going to have to take risks." Warner Bros has debuted the first official trailer for David Gordon Green's Our Brand Is Crisis, starring Sandra Bullock as a smart political campaign strategist. After a terrible loss, she goes into retirement but is recruited by a Bolivian candidate and decides to go up against her old rival, played by Billy Bob Thornton, one last time. The film also stars Anthony Mackie, Joaquim de Almeida, Ann Dowd, Scoot McNairy and Zoe Kazan. This looks solid, trust in David Gordon Green. It's nothing like his other comedies, but he really knows how to make a great films.
A Bolivian presidential candidate failing badly in the polls enlists the firepower of an elite American management team, led by the deeply damaged but still brilliant strategist "Calamity" Jane Bodine. In self-imposed retirement following a scandal that earned her nickname and rocked her to her core, Jane is coaxed back into the game for the chance to beat her professional nemesis, the loathsome Pat Candy, now coaching the opposition. But as Candy zeroes in on every vulnerability – both on and off the campaign trail – Jane is plunged into a personal crisis as intense as the one her team exploits nationally to boost their numbers. Our Brand Is Crisis is directed by David Gordon Green (Manglehorn, Prince Avalanche, Pineapple Express), from a script by Peter Straughan. WB opens Our Brand Is Crisis on October 30th.

Not been a huge fan of his work up to now, but this looks like something a bit different than the usual DGG navel gazing. I'm interested, but hoping this movie makes up its mind between comedy and deadly serious drama, or at least gets the balance right, or it could be a tonal mess. However, huge bonus for the use of that 10 Years After rock classic in the trailer!

After watching NARCOS, I feel like it will be awhile before a drama set in South America gets my attention. I am glad to see Bullock is not pulling any punches after her hiatus.

Americans meddling in other countries elections? Noooo, surely not.
