|Still from The Ides of March|
"I'll do or say anything if I believe in it. But I have to believe in the cause.".
The stakes are big in this new Trailer for The Ides of March, which not only is premiering at TIFF this September, but also it is a mega Oscar-contender for Best Picture. See Ryan Gosling star as an Intern, Stephen Myers, assisting with on the campaign of a Presidential Hopeful, played by Governor Mike Morris (George Clooney). Things get just a little competitive and heated when Stephen finds out something dark and shady about Mike that goes against his beliefs.
My question is, what is Gosling up for here, Best Supporting Actor or Lead Actor as he appears to have the most screen time? This looks like a The Devil Wears Prada type scenario in 2007 which saw Anne Hathaway get more screen time, but instead Meryl Streep be in the running for Best Actress. Clooney of course is Streep and Gosling of course is Hathaway.
The Ides of March opens in Canada on October 7, 2011 via Alliance Films.
