First Clip From The Descendants


Fox Searchlight has released a clip from their upcoming Alexander Payne film The Descendants. The below video debuted at the film’s official (and somewhat mysterious) website, released today through the studio’s Twitter account, and features George Clooney on a rather panicked run.

Based on the novel by Kaui Hart Hemmings, the film stars Clooney as an indifferent husband and father of two girls, who is forced to re-establish his relationship with his daughters after his wife suffers a boating accident off of Waikiki.

Set for release on December 16, The Descendants also stars Judy Greer, Beau Bridges, Matthew Lillard, Robert Forster, Shailene Woodley, Mary Birdsong, Nick Krause and Amara Miller.
