First look at THE DESCENDANTS features a running George Clooney
While it’s still many a month away from its December 16th release date, Fox Searchlight has apparently already started promoting the long talked about George Clooney-starring and Alexander Payne-directed film, THE DESCENDANTS.
The studio announced on their Twitter the formation of a new website Who-Is-He.org, which features nothing but a really short little video of Clooney’s character running from his home to tell his neighbors something.
DESCENDANTS follows a man, Matt King, who along with his daughters, goes on the hunt for the man with whom his wife has been sleeping with. A boating accident has left her injured, and him on a tear to find who tore his marriage apart. Penned by Nat Faxon and Jim Rash, the film stars Beau Bridges, Matthew Lillard, Judy Greer, Robert Forster, Mary Birdsong, and Nick Krause, and is based on the Kaui Hart Hemmings novel.
The footage here isn’t all that telling with regards to the film, but it is interesting to note that for a film starring Clooney, Searchlight is going a bit small with regards to its promotion. I think the footage here is intriguing if you love out of context video, but it also seems to set the film’s tone. Here’s to hoping we get something a bit meatier soon.
