The Campaign launches two new posters


The Campaign has just launched two brand new posters, and we can give you an exclusive look at them right here.

Directed by Austin Powers ’ Jay Roach, the film is a political satire, but the emphasis is on belly laughs (as you might have guessed by the fact it stars Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis).

The new posters continue the voting theme. Would you back Ferrell’s career politician, promising to take care of business, or does the ‘family first’ message of Zach’s loveable doofus win you over?

Check out the new posters in full below:

Here’s what the official blurb has to say about the plot:

When long-term congressman Cam Brady (Will Ferrell) commits a major public gaffe before an upcoming election, a pair of ultra-wealthy CEOs plot to put up a rival candidate and gain influence over their North Carolina district. Their man: naïve Marty Huggins (Zach Galifianakis), director of the local Tourism Center.

At first, Marty appears to be the unlikeliest possible choice but, with the help of his new benefactors’ support, a cutthroat campaign manager and his family’s political connections, he soon becomes a contender who gives the charismatic Cam plenty to worry about.

As election day closes in, the two are locked in a dead heat, with insults quickly escalating to injury until all they care about is burying each other.

The Campaign
opens in the UK on 28 September 2012. For more info on the film, head to
