Sandra Bullock’s ‘Our Brand Is Crisis’ Gets a Poster and a Trailer

Debuting just ahead of its world premiere at the Toronto Film Festival, David Gordon Green’s comedy/drama Our Brand Is Crisis gives us Academy Award winners Sandra Bullock (The Blind Side) and Billy Bob Thornton (Sling Blade) as crisis-managing political strategists in a story loosely based on the 2002 Bolivian presidential election and documented in the non-fiction feature of the same name in 2005 by Rachel Boynton. The film also stars Ann Dowd (HBO’s The Leftovers), Anthony Mackie (The Hurt Locker) and Joaquim de Almeida (Fast Five, Clear and Present Danger) in a scene-stealing role as one of the presidential candidates.

I have to say I really love the cheekiness of a tagline like ‘May the best campaign win’ right at the start of the Oscar season.

Our Brand Is Crisis was produced by the Oscar-winning duo George Clooney and Grant Heslov (Argo) along with Smoke House Pictures. Warner Bros. will be releasing the film, which was co-financed by Participant Media. The film will be released October 30, 2015.


About Erik Anderson

Erik thanks his mother for his love of all things Oscar, having watched the Academy Awards together since he was in the single digits; making lists, rankings and predictions throughout the show. This led him down the path to obsessing about awards. Much later, he found himself at GoldDerby, led by Tom O’Neill and then migrated over to Oscarwatch (now AwardsDaily), headed up by Sasha Stone before breaking off to create AwardsWatch. He is a member of the International Cinephile Society, GALECA (The Society of LGBTQ Entertainment Critics), the International Press Academy and is the founder/owner of AwardsWatch.
