Everyone’s aware of my love for one Ryan Gosling, so it’s no surprise that I’m flipping out over this movie poster. But aside from including the best looking human being of all time, it also includes the face of George Clooney, a really spooky optical illusion, Time magazine and the title Ides of March, which is by far my favorite reference in literature. So. Many. Things.
According to cinemablend.com, “the latest directorial effort from George Clooney, Ides of March stars Ryan Gosling as the frazzled press secretary for a Presidential contender – a contender with so much charm, gravitas and political savvy that he pretty much has to be played by Clooney himself. The job of a press secretary is to pretty much fuse your personality with the candidate’s.”
I don’t know about that last line, but it sounds very All the King’s Men, and I’m pumped about it.
The film, which also stars Marisa Tomei, Philip Seymour Hoffman and Evan Rachel Wood, will be showcased at this year’s Toronto Film Festival and is set for an October 2011 release date in the States. Yes. Please.
