The Campaign

Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis star in a mud-slinging, back-stabbing, baby-punching political comedy. When long-term North Carolina congressman Cam Brady finds himself in a public scandal, the wealthy powers-that-be decide to back newcomer Marty Huggins as their pawn against him. At first, naive Marty appears to be the unlikeliest possible choice but soon becomes a contender who gives the charismatic Cam plenty to worry about. As Election Day closes in, the two are locked in a dead heat, with insults quickly escalating to injury until all they care about is burying each other in the dirtiest and funniest political fight of all time.

Ruby Sparks

Paul Dano and Zoe Kazan star in a coming-of-age romantic comedy from Jonthan Dayton and Valerie Faris, the directors of 'Little Miss Sunshine.' Struggling with writer's block and a lackluster love life, once-famous novelist Calvin creates a beautiful fictitious character named Ruby who inspires him. But not only does this muse bring his work to life -- it also brings Ruby to life. Literally. Face-to-face with a real-life relationship with his once strictly-literary girlfriend, Calvin must now decide whether to pen this love story or let it write itself.
