The Descendants gets a new trailer

Hawaii is not as perfect as you think

 

 

A new trailer has been released for George Clooney's latest film The Descendants, and it's a good one. Check it out above.

Based on the novel by Kaui Hart Hemmings, the comedy drama takes a different look at Hawaii.

"My friends think just because I live in Hawaii I live in paradise. Are they insane?" narrates Clooney over sweeping scenes of the island.

The film focusses on a family who are trying to cope after their mother is left in a coma following a serious boating accident.

The trailer shows Matt King (Clooney) trying to reconnect with his two daughters and extended family after the accident.

He also discovers his wife was having an affair, adding to the strain the family is suffering.

Be prepared, The Descendants looks like a weepie. But don't worry: there are a surprising amount of chuckles in there considering the subject matter.

Three new images have also been released:

The Descendants, directed by Sideways' Alexander Payne, also stars Shailene Woodley and Nick Krause. It opens in the UK on 27 January 2012.

Do you think George Clooney's latest looks any good? What are your thoughts?

      Total Film was temporarily a happy place full of sunshine and rainbows.

      You like battlefield earth and the resident evil movies yet you lay into Clooney and the Ides of March? That's why you have no taste. And you're no different, you're the same whining bullying little prick you always were and as soon as you lose your rag when someone disagrees with you you'll be shrieking about how you're going to get your brother to kill us again.

      @writerdave, ah now, come on, lets at least give him the chance here. @CFG, i really dont agree with your movie choices either but thats never bothered me, each to their own n that, but i hope you keep it civilised from now on, and i have no problem telling you it was my email to the 3 editors of the website that caused your old account to be banned. So children, let's play nice now.

      Nicely put Heisenberg, if he behaves himself and leaves the hateful stuff out I'll try to ignore his 'taste'. I've wondered about the initials toom there seems to be a lot of 'FBCs' and 'FBAs'?
