A new trailer has been released for writer and director John Stewart’s upcoming political satire comedy Irresistible. The movie centers around the complicated and circus-like election process in the United States as Carrell’s character, as Democratic political consultant, wants to try to turn a retired Marine colonel (Chris Cooper) into a mayoral candidate in a small Wisconsin town to try and win over the heartland of America.
The movie also stars Rose Byrne (Bridesmaids), Mackenzie Davis (Terminator: Dark Fate), Natasha Lyonne (Russian Doll), Chris Cooper (American Beauty), Topher Grace (That 70’s Show), Debra Messing (Will and Grace), and Will Sasso (Mad TV). Here’s the synopsis:
Irresistible is a comedy about what happens when a small Wisconsin town becomes the main attraction of our political circus. After the Democrat’s top strategist Gary sees a video of a retired Marine Colonel standing up for the rights of his town’s undocumented workers, Gary believes he has found the key to winning back the Heartland. However, when the Republicans counter him by sending in his brilliant nemesis Faith, what started out as a local race quickly becomes an out-of-control and hilarious fight for the soul of America.
The movie looks like it’ll be entertaining and it’s set to be released on June 26th, 2020.
