The Obama re-election campaign has dropped a trailer for the first-term documentary it's been promising.
The Road We've Traveled official trailer has all the elements of an action-packed thriller. Narrated by Tom Hanks and directed by Academy Award winning director Davis Guggenheim, the clip includes dramatic music and interviews with high-profile Democrats and Obama staff.
How do we understand this president and his time in office? says Hanks. Do we look at the days' headlines, or do we remember what we as a country have been through?
The two-minute trailer aims to focus on the term as a whole, rather than the day-to-day political scene. It paints a portrait of a president who inherited a number of difficult crises, from the recession to the failing auto industry, and highlights the killing of Osama bin Laden. The full documentary is 17 minutes long and will be released on March 15.
Guggenheim is best known for the 24, NYPD Blue, Alias, an ER. He also directed the Al Gore's global warming documentary An Inconvenient Truth and Waiting for Superman, which analyzes the education system.
Unsurprisinly, Republicans were less than thrilled about the glamorous, high-profile documentary.
Obama movie producer should talk to the millions of unemployed, our grandchildren who will bay for his bog-govt. programs, & our veterans, tweeted GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney.
