I was just starting to warm up to the previous trailer for The Descendants and now Fox Searchlight has went ahead and released another. This latest trailer, provided by CHUD touches a bit more on the weird comedy aspect of the film. I’m really looking forward to checking this film out mainly because I haven’t seen one single film by Alexander Payne. I was close to buying Sideways, but I never did. He’s been getting so much praise as a director and I can’t wait to see how his new comedy/drama pans out.
George Clooney is rarely a burden, so if I don’t warm up to Payne’s directing style I can always count on Clooney to provide an excellent dramatic performance. This latest trailer is good, but I still like the first one a lot more, because it focuses more on the family drama while slowly easing in that awkward dose of reality, in the form of comedy. Regardless of how the trailers are cut I still can’t wait to check this damn thing out!
The Descendants opens on November 18th, 2011.
