The Company You Keep 

 October 12, 2012

 Perfectly timed to coincide with the Republican National Convention rebuilding the country that it built, because It Built That©, here's the first trailer for Robert Redford's The Company You Keep, which delves into the radicalist Weather Underground group that began using violent means in 1969 to eventually put Obama into office. Of course, you won't get any of that here, because government conspiracy grumble grumble, but you will get a whole host of actors like Susan Sarandon (as Redford's former cohort), Nick Nolte, Julie Christie, Terrence Howard, Stanley Tucci, Chris Cooper, Brendan Gleeson, and Anna Kendrick, all either abetting or attempting to thwart reporter Shia LaBeouf's relentless pursuit of Redford and The Truth. And yes, in accordance with LaBeouf's commitment to verisimilitude, he actually wears glasses, like a reporter would.
