Hot Trailer: Alexander Payne’s The Descendants Starring George Clooney

With George Clooney already looking to potentially garner one Oscar nomination with The Ides of March, he looks to potentially split up that vote with a starring turn in Alexander Payne’s The Descendants. And now it has a second trailer.

Plot Summary: From Alexander Payne, the creator of the Oscar-winning SIDEWAYS, set in Hawaii, THE DESCENDANTS is a sometimes humorous, sometimes tragic journey for Matt King (George Clooney) an indifferent husband and father of two girls, who is forced to re-examine his past and embrace his future when his wife suffers a boating accident off of Waikiki. The event leads to a rapprochement with his young daughters while Matt wrestles with a decision to sell the family’s land handed down from Hawaiian royalty and missionaries.
