With the poster for the film hitting earlier this week, the first trailer for the upcoming Alexander Payne film, THE DESCENDANTS has hit, and it looks like one hell of a winner.

The film, set to debut on December 16, stars George Clooney as a man who takes his daughters on a trip to hunt down the man with whom his wife is having an affair. Co-starring Beau Bridges, Matthew Lillard, Judy Greer, Robert Forster, Mary Birdsong, and Nick Krause, the film is co-written by Nat Faxon and Jim Rash, and has been one of the more hotly talked about projects around.

As a fan of Payne and his work, particularly things like ELECTION and SIDEWAYS, the trailer for this film seems to have much in common with Payne’s previous works, something that has this writer admittedly excited. DESCENDANTS has a top-notch cast and a screenplay that has garnered quite a bit of buzz, one that could do wonders with Payne’s typical tart sense of humor, so here’s to hoping it can live up to the hype. 

Check out the trailer over at Apple.
