Deadline – Warner Bros has staked out a Halloween weekend release date for Our Brand Is Crisis, the political comedy-drama starring Sandra Bullock and Billy Bob Thornton. David Gordon Green’s film is based on the likewise-titled 2005 documentary by Rachel Boynton that focuses on American political campaign marketing tactics and their consequences.
Bullock stars in the feature as “Calamity” Jane Bodine, a retired political consultant brought in to help an unpopular Bolivian president get re-elected. Things get personal when Jane’s nemesis, Pat Candy (Billy Bob Thornton), arrives to lead the opposition’s campaign. Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy scribe Peter Straughan penned the screenplay, and Smokehouse Pictures’ George Clooney and Grant Heslov are producing.
Our Brand Is Crisis will start its campaign October 30, facing a pair of fellow wide-release candidates: Paramount’s horror comedy Scouts Guide To The Zombie Apocalypse (fka Scouts Vs. Zombies) and — at least as it stands now — Relativity’s actioner Autobahn.

Sometimes studios fall ass backwards into good fortune, and that was the case for Universal with “Despicable Me.” Not only was the original movie a smash hit that started a franchise, with a sequel in 2013, and another planned for 2017, but those little yellow creatures were also a huge audience favorite. Now, “Minions” are getting their own chance to shine in a standalone movie and a brand new trailer is here.
While Sandra Bullock, Jon Hamm, Michael Keaton, Allison Janney, Steve Coogan, and Geoffrey Rush lend their voices to the movie, the yellow guys who can make sounds, but barely form words, are the real stars of the show. And they do have a goofy charm that is pretty undeniable, and there are some pretty great gags through this spot which opens with a trip through history, before settling down with the plot that involves stealing a crown or something. Anyway, you’re not here for the plot but for the jokes, and there are plenty.
“Minions” opens on July 10th.
According to Average Socialite, Minions Premiere in Los Angeles will be held at Regency Village Theatre on June 27. The UK Premiere will be at Leicester Sq. in London on June 11, according to CelebIntelUK.
