[UPDATE #7] Enjoy the red-band campaigning for the Will Ferrell/Zack Galifianakis comedy The Campaign after the jump.

[UPDATE #6] We finally have a new trailer for The Campaign after some expectedly cheesy political “campaigning” posters. See it after the jump.

[UPDATE #5] Check out some new, and slightly ridiculous, campaign posters for The Campaign.

[UPDATE #4] Check out the new “in your face” poster from The Campaign after the jump.

[UPDATE #3] Check out the official trailer after the jump. It’s trying to be timely before the next US Presidential Election. How’s thoughtful.

[UPDATE #2] The Campaign has released promo video and banner that are disguised as “political ads”. At least it’s somewhat creative marketing. Kudos. See them after the jump.

[UPDATE #1] Zach Galifianakis has been confirmed to star with Owen Wilson and Amy Poehler in Matthew Weiner’s directorial debut You Are Here. [Movie News] Will Ferrell has also been confirmed to return in Anchorman 2 with Stevel Carell and Paul Rudd. [Deadline]. See Ferrell’s announcement on Conan after the jump.

[Original] The Oscar skit that Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis performed this year was a bright spot to this year’s rather dull show (hosted by the comedy veteran Billy Crystal). Stumbling around with cymbals, it wasn’t too long before I realized they were promoting their upcoming film The Campaign. Even though there’s no thematic link between the two events, we got see them interact and hopefully it’ll be something humorous. See the first official photo from The Campaign below.

Neither has really impressed me with their films lately (yes, including The Hangover and The Other Guys), but all it takes is one film. I think they need a great supporting cast to be funny, seeing that I preferred stuff that happened around Will Ferrell in Anchorman much funnier than the man himself. What little I’ve seen of Galifianakis in Bored to Death was pretty good only because I think Ted Danson is great. Maybe this time they can prove me wrong…

Directed by Jay Roach, The Campaign focuses “centers on two rival North Carolina politicians with presidential aspirations who tangle with one another.

The film also stars Jason Sudeikis, Dylan McDermott, Brian Cox, John Lithgow and Dan Aykroyd. Now, that’s a great supporting cast.

Seeing that the actual US presidential elections will become a circus onto itself, the film will be released a few months in anticipation on August 10th.

Side note: We here at DMC also noted that Galifianakis would also be great in a biopic of musician Brian Wilson during the “Smile”-era.
