Could Sandra Bullock be looking for some more statuettes to add to her collection? I suspect so, and if this trailer is any indication, her odds look good! She stars in the movie ‘Our Brand is Crisis,’ where she plays a political operative who’s tasked with trying to get a South American candidate elected President of his country.
Billy Bob Thornton co-stars in the movie. It looks like Sandra is a down-on-her-luck operative who’s got the chance to save her reputation if she can engineer a come-from-behind victory for her candidate. At one point her character declares:
The only thing wrong is losing!”
Yet then she comes to realize the ramifications of this election: the country is on the brink of collapse and needs a true leader.
Sandra discussed how she found out about the part.
About two and a half years ago I put out feelers saying, ‘I’m not reading anything I’m excited about. Are there any male roles out there that [the filmmakers] don’t mind switching to female?’”
Turns out her friend George Clooney, who produced the movie, had just the part for her! ‘Our Brand is Crisis’ looks really good, and the timing is perfect, since election season is ramping up. Check out the trailer. How does it look to you?
