Love the film poster. Smart and sets a good tone for the film.

Sidenote - Ryan has bleached his hair for a new film role and it is bad. This will impact on my viewpoint of his hotness when he starts doing promotion for Ides. I mean really, do you want to look that bad on a red carpet when you are standing next to and getting compared to George Clooney? Link attached that show pictures of him on set on his new film. It's pretty trailer trash.

I missed the trailer here and saw it on JJ. Holy f#ck - I am so there opening weekend. The pace of the film - love it. He becomes a better director each time he steps behind the camera.

And the comments are positive (mainly).

Amazing cast!

ides of march here i come.

hmmm.

THIS, ladies and gentlemen, is what you call a movie.

Ryan Gosling. He keeps winning.

WOW! This looks like a great movie!!

WOW! This looks like a great movie!!

two of my fav men in one movie
can not wait

Good luck! Seems to be a nice movie and have all chances to be Academi Award Nominee.

Holy crap! That looks incredible! Will definitely be among the year’s best. George Clooney looks like he’s really outdid himself here and this could be Ryan Gosling’s best performance yet! And what a supporting cast too. Phillip Seymour Hoffman, Paul Giamatti, Even Rachel Wood, Marissa Tomei. Absolutely incredible cast!

amazing!

Somebody in this movie’s getting an Oscar!

Um…he HAS an Academy Award. Just saying…

Looks cool actually. Is the title a reference to Julius Caesar?

HA lovve movies with poltical issues in it … I’ll be there !

Did someone noticed, that Leonardo DiCaprio is the executive producer of this movie? Look at the end of the trailer, the subtitles. HA!
Now I want to see it even more.

Loved the trailer. Goes to show this is an exciting, fast-paced political drama. Seems more like a thriller at times.
Superb cast all round. Wide audience appeal. Can’t wait!

Splendid! Smile “MUST watch” movie! Smile

Hey Girls!

New video on Biography channel, tonight 10 PM. About stars who have aged gracefully. George is one of those profiled. Of course, we know he's aged gracefully - he does everything gracefully. (Sigh) Thank goodness for DVR, I can record it (going to BD party for grandson and might not be back in time.

I finally saw it. Thanks Henway!

It's going to be a great movie. I can see PSH, PG and maybe Golsin getting nominations, and hopefully George. By the way, I love Marisa Tomei, I don't like ERW much...I liked her on 13 and that was it! Anyway, cannot wait to see it!

I'll be honest, I really didnt have a lot of interest in this movie other than it being a George film. But after watching the trailer, I'm genuinely looking forward to watching it not just because it's his film.

In the August 8th issue of Life & Style there is a section called "Stars Gossip Too" and Ryan Gosling is quoted as saying, "He will come up to you and tell you something very serious and then you walk away, and you realize your pants are wet. He's had an Evian spray bottle. He's been spraying your crotch the whole time!" ... The Ides of March's Ryan Gosling on co-star George Clooney's pranks

Just watched the trailer. Interesting dialogue - "...dignity matters, integrity matters..." wow, what I've been saying for years...

I think this film will be very interesting. I saw the play and it's whole premise is that politicians and those who run their political campaigns can be ruthless and how this "George Stephanopoulos" type character (George was a senior adviser for Clinton's 1992 campaign and subsequently became the White House Communications Director) becomes embroiled in a scandal.

And since the play was only 4 characters, it will be interesting to see the story is "fleshed-out" for the film.

Miamian Cover Story

By Donna Boen '83 MTSC '96

A pert young blonde balances two boxes of doughnuts and four coffees in her arms as she strides up the walk to the stately front door of Miami's Farmer School of Business.

The sky is a gorgeous deep blue, but the chill still demands winter coats, earmuffs, and gloves. Except for the fleece-lined boots, the woman is underdressed in a white blouse, dark skirt, and blazer, but she'll have to shiver in the cold awhile longer.

Once the director calls cut, actress Evan Rachel Wood will go back to her starting point and carry the doughnuts and coffee up to the entrance several more times before actor/director George Clooney is certain he has what he needs for the shot.

Surrounded by camera and crew, cables and cast, Clooney is hard to see for the growing crowd of spectators. In jeans, leather jacket, and black pea coat, he easily blends in; dark, plain clothing seemingly the uniform of the day for anyone not in front of the camera.

Still students, faculty, and staff, standing a polite distance away, strain to spot him. Several young women count to three and squeal his name in unison, hoping to entice George to look their way.

"My mom is going to freak," another woman tells her two girlfriends, holding up her cellphone to take a picture.

After three weeks of shooting in Cincinnati, "The Ides of March" crew came to Miami during the first week of March, appropriately enough, to film in and around Farmer and Hall Auditorium. Based on "Farragut North," a 2008 play by Beau Willimon, the story focuses on a young press secretary, portrayed by Ryan Gosling, who gets caught up in the seamier side of politics while pitching his presidential candidate, Gov. Mike Morris, aka George Clooney.

The movie adaptation called for several college settings. Kristen Erwin '96, executive director of the Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky Film Commission, was bringing Clooney to her alma mater last fall to scout possible locations when Miami almost lost a second close-up in Hollywood's spotlight, the first being Jodie Foster's "Little Man Tate" in 1990.

"My initial introduction of Miami to George was somewhere around Millville, where he said this is way too far. I kept telling him, wait a minute. Then we got there, and he said, 'This is perfect. Now I know exactly why you drove me this far.' "

Communication professor David Sholle (in cap) and his film class observe George Clooney and company in action.


Once on the Oxford campus, Erwin helped Clooney and company find locations to meet their needs while trying to keep their visit as quiet as possible.

At Farmer only a few students noticed them, uncertain at first of who they were seeing. By the time the group headed to Hall, several students were texting about the Clooney sighting, and one cellphone photo went viral. Faster than a twitterer's tweet, the scouting team was back in the van and returning to Cincinnati. They chuckled as they saw the news vans heading to campus to track down the rumored sightings.

The one person who the media sought out to confirm the rumors was the one person who could neither confirm nor deny, a phrase on Claire Wagner's lips for months.

"I was sworn to secrecy," said Wagner, director of Miami's news and public information office. She understood Erwin's concern. Too much publicity too soon could lead to bigger crowds, which, in turn, could slow down production and increase costs. A hint of too much chaos might cause Clooney to look elsewhere.

"Claire wanted to make sure Miami secured the contract, and she wanted to do that so students could be part of this experience, and the beauty of Miami would be seen in this film," Erwin said. Erwin wanted this, too. She comes from a family with extensive ties to Miami. Her grandfather, Bill Liggett '39, was board chairman, and her uncle, Bob Cantoni '50, a past member of the national alumni board, is still quite active. Her mom, aunt, and younger sister are also Miami alumnae and her husband, Mike Schlotman, attended as well.

Cincinnati TV news crews and Oxford and Miami police played themselves in "The Ides of March" scenes shot in front of Farmer School of Business the first day of filming at Miami.

Another Miamian behind the scenes on "Ides" was Greg Matusak '95, like Erwin, also from Cincinnati. A casting director with Dare to Dream, he helped find the extras.

Day three of shooting, which happened to be Green Beer Day, was particularly hectic with more than 800 hopefuls – students, faculty, staff, and others – showing up at Millett at 6:30 a.m. Each was eager to be chosen as one of the audience members who would be filmed sitting in Hall Auditorium watching Clooney's character in a presidential debate.

Greg Matusak '95, a casting director with Dare to Dream in Cincinnati who worked tirelessly on "Ides," is proud Miami will appear in the political drama … as herself, no less.

For other scenes that required only a few in the background, Matusak was happy to call on students provided by the theatre department. "We had them picked out when we needed small, small groups. It looked good on their résumé, it got them some extra time on screen, plus it was always nice to know these kids could be professional."

Mistaken for actor Paul Giamatti several times throughout the week, Matusak had maybe six hours of sleep during the four days of shooting. "Ides" was, without a doubt, his largest casting gig to date. This was also the nicest crew he's worked with. George gets the credit for that, too.

"We were told that George Clooney spent a lot of time being an extra, and he wanted all the extras treated well. We tried to make it a really, really good experience. Most days the extras ate with the crew or right after, enjoying the same food. You don't see that on every shoot."

One extra Matusak cast was Mr. Miami himself (at least that's what he calls himself in his email address), Dan Szuhay '64 MEd '65. Dan and his wife, Jan Hon. '93, moved to Maineville, Ohio, after he retired from Birmingham Public Schools in Michigan.

Kristen Erwin '96, executive director of the Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky Film Commission, knew George Clooney and crew would love the Oxford campus. "We just had to get them there."

Actually, Matusak first cast the Szuhays' daughter, Kelly Szuhay McKinley '95, a music teacher for Little Miami Public Schools near Cincinnati. When Kelly asked if her parents could join in the fun, Matusak invited them as well.

They showed up at Millett with their three changes of clothes, were approved for both Thursday's and Friday's shoots, and boarded a shuttle for the extras' short trip across campus to Hall's 103-year-old auditorium.

Their instructions? Don't leave your mouth open, don't stare at the camera, don't do dead eye. No cellphones, no laptops, no talking, at least during filming.

"As luck would have it, we got seats in the first row stage left," said Dan Szuhay, who performed in Hall, then known as Benton, during his undergraduate days. He took actors across the stage as a rickshaw person in "The Skin of Our Teeth" and played a slave in "The King and I."

Although feeling a bit typecast in his third non-speaking role, Szuhay enjoyed watching the presidential debate scene up close. Repeated about five times from different camera angles, actual filming lasted about two minutes. Setting the stage took far longer.

Seeing the cameramen and set crew scuttle about with their earphones, cellphones, and clipboards, it seemed like organized chaos to Szuhay. Friday's filming was more of the same – four hours of setup to film two minutes. The difference that day was that the other stars were arriving sporadically throughout the morning and being introduced to the extras – Ryan Gosling, Paul Giamatti, Marisa Tomei, Philip Seymour Hoffman.

And what about Dan Szuhay and his own rise to stardom?

"One of the angles was filming right behind me shooting up between me and the girl sitting next to me," Dan said. "The cameraman told me how to sit so he could get a good picture. He said they probably would use that angle, and the back of my head would be in the shot. Naturally, I will be getting 8x10 glossies of the back of my head for publicity."

On late Friday afternoon, the crew packed up and headed their semitrailers into the rain for more shooting in Detroit. No more massive cables laid across Campus Avenue, blocking traffic. No more large spotlights being rolled down the middle of Patterson.

The campus seemed to let out a collective sigh of contentment.

One of the many extras chosen to sit in the audience for the presidential debate scene in Hall Auditorium takes her turn in the makeup chair at Millett.

"A lot of people wrote to me afterward and told me this is one now crossed off their bucket lists," Matusak said.

"This wasn't B Hollywood, this was A+ Hollywood coming to Oxford," Wagner said. "It surely lends some cachet to what we have here. Some people will never have heard of Miami before they see the movie."

Rumor has it that "The Ides of March" will be released
Oct. 14 and premiere in Cincinnati. Rumor also has it that Miami will appear, as herself, in the first 10 minutes … so if you're looking for the familiar red bricks, you might want to settle in with your popcorn before the end of the previews.

Of course, we can neither confirm nor deny.

The largest prop had to be the presidential campaign bus, parked outside Farmer for the first morning's shoot.

Aha! Here we begin the whole 'is it based on truth?' question:

From [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Hotel owner Jeff Hunter posed an interesting tongue-in-cheek question last week after seeing an item on Politico.com saying that George Clooney's new movie, "The Ides of March," will open next fall.

The movie is a political thriller based on the play "Farragut North," which was written by former Howard Dean staffer Beau Willimon.

The play was set in and around Des Moines, with the opening scene and much of the action taking place in a hotel bar.

Given that Hunter's Hotel Fort Des Moines is always a favorite hangout of candidates and staffers during Iowa's presidential caucuses, the hotel owner asked: "Who plays me, and who plays Paul Rottenberg, the hotel's manager?" If you have any suggestions, pass them along.

It is a loosely based tale about the 2004 campaign. It was a Broadway production in 2008. So, one has to ask… who played them on Broadway?

Right movie, wrong thread.

@LL - I can't find the original thread that talked about you going to Los Angeles for his movie opening. However, and I know its only a rumor, but did you read this in Atlantee's article she linked?

Rumor has it that "The Ides of March" will be released
Oct. 14 and premiere in Cincinnati.

Chris Noth played PSH role. John Gallagher, Jr. played RG role. Can't find who played GTC role.
When they performed IOM in LA, Chris Pine played RG role.

Did anyone else know Leonardo DiCaprio is the executive producer on The Ides of March? I didn’t so I thought I’d post it… Maybe I missed something… Loud hailer possible!

As well as those movies in development, Leonardo DiCaprio also has three films currently in production. He is executive producer on the forthcoming movie The Ides of March, which is written, directed and stars George Clooney. The Ides of March is due to be released on October 7.

Star-Studded 'The Ides Of March' May Be One Of The Must-See Movies Of Fall
"The Ides of March," October 7th:

With the best cast of the entire year, director/actor George Clooney's political thriller "The Ides of March" has been buzzed about for months now, even though the trailer didn't hit the Web until this week.

Starring Clooney, Ryan Gosling, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Paul Giamatti, Marisa Tomei and Evan Rachel Wood, "The Ides of March" trailer takes viewers into the complex and dark world of behind-the-scenes politics, which is a place that few movies have the boldness to actually go.

Gosling plays the underling and main advisor to Clooney, who at first appears to be a squeaky clean presidential candidate but may end up being anything but.

Aimed for a more patient adult audience, "Ides" appears to be a thriller with plenty of plot twists and moral implications as a young and idealistic political worker gets brought into the seedy underbelly of national politics.

This one is clearly being marketed as a potential Oscar hopeful and seems to be busting with juicy roles that could land one of its main actors a gold statuette. "Ides" is also set to open the Venice International Film Festival in early September.

The trailer for "The Ides of March" can be viewed at the movie's official site.

Box office potential:

Clooney has appeared in a bevy of well-respected, adult-geared dramas ("The American," "Up in the Air," "Michael Clayton"), though that won't necessarily mean "Ides" will be a big hit.

"Ides" will likely need strong critical support and buzz from the Venice Film Festival for it to turn into a cross-over commercial success, but that very well might happen.

A couple of Oscar nominations also could help it turn the corner and procure a sizeable theatrical release and box office total.

Just seen th Uk version of FHM and they have a Ryan Gosling interview for another film he's doing but they mention Ides. He says that Gee did no more than 3 takes per scene, and edited the whole thing within 3 weeks of wrapping up location. Ryan also says that Gee would keep on at him so much that in the end his character goes a bit evil!!!

Sounds like the way George always works. He knows how to get what he wants out of his people with a minimum of effort, it seems.

agree Patty!

I am so excited for this movie! I saw the Gosdong and Marisa Tomei in crazy, stupid, love and they were really good there. So, I hope Marisa has more screening time on the Ides of March. She is just terrific!

My fave Clooney movies are the ones he directed, so I am really rooting for this one, Smile

I agree. I'm really looking forward to seeing it and really would love to be a fly on the wall (or on his shoulder) of any movie he directs.
