Read More: Directors from Quentin Tarantino to Kevin Smith Remember the Video Store With the much-lamented shuttering of Blockbuster in 2014 came the realization that the once-thriving film culture of the video store had become a thing of the past. In tribute to this bygone era comes The New York Times author Tom Roston's "I Lost It At The Video Store: A Filmmakers' Oral History of a Vanisher Era," a loving collection of interviews with filmmakers like Joe Swanberg, Quentin Tarantino, and Darren Aronofsky on their relationship to the dying institution. Last night at Brooklyn's beloved bookstore Book Court, Zoe Kazan, Paul Dano, Tim Blake Nelson, Doug Liman and Video Free Brooklyn owner Aaron Hillis sat down with Roston to discuss his new book and the lasting culture of the film rental. Check out some of the highlights from the event below. On Roston's reason for writing the book "When »

Today we have the trailer for the upcoming "Our Brand is Crisis" film, starring Sandra Bullock, Billy Bob Thornton, Anthony Mackie, Zoe Kazan, Scoot McNairy and Ann Dowd. Check it out below. Plot: A feature film based on the documentary "Our Brand Is Crisis," which focuses on the use of American political campaign strategies in South America.

Yesterday, a Trailer dropped for Our Brand is Crisis, the political drama/satire hybrid that I’ve been predicting for Oscar attention all year. With it, we got our first real look at a film that could certainly liven up the impending awards season. David Gordon Green’s movie is getting a premiere shortly at the 2015 Toronto Film Festival, and assuming reviews are strong, this will quickly become more than just a Sandra Bullock vehicle, but a legitimate Academy Award contender as well. We’ll know soon enough, but this very solid Trailer is a hint that this is something to be excited about, especially if you’re looking for another contender to enter the race. Here’s a quick refresher on the movie. Basically, it’s based on the documentary of the same name (Our Brand Is Crisis, of course), which focused on the use of American political campaign strategies in South American elections. »

The first trailer for Oscar hopeful Our Brand Is Crisis has appeared online, and you can view it in the player below!
Directed by David Gordon Green (Mangelhorn) and produced by George Clooney’s Smoke House Pictures, Crisis is a political comedy-drama that is a “loose” remake of the 2005 documentary film by Rachel Boynton of the same name. Oscar winner Sandra Bullock (The Blind Side) stars in the film as “Calamity” Joe Bodine, alongside Billy Bob Thornton (Fargo), Zoe Kazan (Ruby Sparks), Anthony Mackie (Avengers: Age of Ultron), Scoot McNairy (Frank), Ann Down (Compliance) and Joaquim de Almeida (Desperado).
Failing badly in the polls, a Bolivian presidential candidate enlists the services of an American management team for help. The main star is “Calamity” Jane Bodine (Sandra Bullock), a brilliant strategist who comes out of self-imposed retirement for a chance to beat her professional nemesis, the loathsome Pat Candy. With Candy working for the opposition, »

The film will debut this coming weekend at the Toronto International Film Festival and then in theaters on October 30th.
In the film, 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 (Bullock). 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 (Thornton), 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 »

The upcoming David Gordon Green film Our Brand Is Crisis wants desperately to have the word “satire” associated with it, but the trailer doesn’t offer us up a satire (in fact or theory), and it hasn’t gone far to offer up something worth watching either.
While I’m no fan of Sandra Bullock, I suspect this is largely a result of a trailer that simply isn’t put together well, an odd note considering the subject of the film, because David Gordon Green (Pineapple Express, Prince Avalanche, Joe) can put together a film, and Peter Straughan (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, Wolf Hall) can certainly write amazing screenplays.
The film’s synopsis describes it as “laced with satire,” which, quite frankly, is a turn of phrase that makes it hard to imagine exactly what you have in mind, and more broadly, the trailer seems to be shooting for a path of least resistance. »

She portrays political consultant “Calamity” Jane Bodine, who’s saddled with the task of getting an unpopular Bolivian president re-elected. “If you get beaten up, you’re doing your job,” she tells the assembled local supporters.
Billy Bob Thornton portrays her enemy, who has come out on top in their previous encounters. “I thought you retired or something,” he tells Bullock’s character. “What happened to your hair?” she responds.
David Gordon Green directed from a screenplay by Peter Straughan (“Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy”). Anthony Mackie, Scoot McNairy, Zoe Kazan, Ann Dowd, Reynaldo Pacheco, Dominic Flores, Louis Arcella, Octavio Gomez Berrios and Joaquim de Almeida also star.

Read More: Toronto International Film Festival Adds New Galas and Special Presentations, Including 'Mr. Right,' 'I Saw the Light,' 'Our Brand is Crisis' and 'Equals' The few times indie filmmaker David Gordon Green has gone to the mainstream, it's been for hard R-rated comedies like "Pineapple Express" and "The Sitter," though all of that's about to change thanks to the upcoming political comedy-drama "Our Brand is Crisis." Loosely adapted from the 2005 documentary of the same name and starring Sandra Bullock, Billy Bob Thornton, Zoe Kazan, Ann Dowd and Joaquim de Almeida, the film looks to be the director's most accessible title yet. "Our Brand is Crisis" centers on political consultant "Calamity" Jane Bodine (Bullock), who comes out of retirement to mount a campaign for a presidential hopeful in the upcoming Bolivian election. Complicating matters is her candidate's tough personality and the fact that her PR rival. »

Oscar winners Sandra Bullock (The Blind Side) and Billy Bob Thornton (Sling Blade) offer a glimpse inside the high-powered world of the political campaign trail in the first trailer and poster for Warner Bros.' Our Brand Is Crisis. With an all-star cast, this political thriller from director David Gordon Green arrives in theaters October 30, going up against Relativity's Autobahn and Paramount's Scout's Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse. This could be an early Oscar contender as well, but we'll have to see how the fans and critics alike respond

The American Presidential election is still over a year away and already it has become a circus. We could use a sharp political satire to lighten the mood.
Enter Sandra Bullock in David Gordon Green’s latest feature Our Brand is Crisis. Bullock plays an expert and storied campaign manager tasked with salvaging the reputation of a South American politician seen as out of touch, all while contending with a rival campaign strategist played by Billy Bob Thornton. Here’s the full synopsis:
