'Ides of March' Movie Trailer Unveiled

A couple of days ago I wrote about news regarding the release dates of George Clooney's Ides of March, much of which was shot in and around Cincinnati. Now we have Ides' first trailer, which gives us a much better idea of the film's tone and focus.

Here's Ides' official synopsis, the contents of which are readily on display in the tension-laced trailer, which centers heavily on Ryan Gosling's campaign press secretary character: —-

In the frantic last days before the heavily contested Ohio presidential primary, an up-and-coming campaign press secretary finds himself in charge of covering up a political scandal that threatens to upend his candidate’s shot at the presidency. Surrounded by scheming rival campaigners and reporters bent on shedding light on the truth at all costs, he quickly drops his idealistic outlook and resorts to backroom politics in order to prevent his candidate’s campaign from derailing.

For those looking for local landmarks, you'll be happy to notice glimpses of Paul Brown Stadium, Miami University's Millet Hall and various shots of the Cincinnati riverfront.
