Sandra Bullock recalls the times when George Clooney served as her wingman and helped her with her boyfriend for four years at the premiere of her movie Our Brand is Crisis.
Sandra Bullock and George Clooney, these are the two names that make sense together. They have been friends long before they were co-actors on the Oscar-winning phenomenon Gravity. The actors hit off a great friendship the moment they met. Sandra reminiscences about their pre onscreen times when they were friends outside of work.

She said that the first time she met George, he was drunk at a party. Sandra had gone there with the guy she would have wanted as her boyfriend back then. She was introduced to George and they talked and spent time with one another.
"It was just pretty funny… he was drunk," Sandra told Access Hollywood. "I know, shocker – the man owns a tequila company. Anyhow, he was doing Buddy Hackett impressions at a friend of ours' house."
After they disengaged, George went, like an expert wingman, to the ‘said guy’ and told him that if he wouldn’t marry her, George would. Of course he wasn’t going to, he waited 30 years after that to marry Amal. Sandra said that after that she dated the guy for four years and he was the link between George and Sandra to keep seeing each other. By the time they broke up, George and Sandra were friends.
"When I came out after I spent time with George, George went to him and said, 'If you don't marry her, I will,'" she said. "George is not gonna marry anybody except for Amal. He was waiting 30 years to do that."
"But that was sort of the thing that sort of got him to just hang with me, the boyfriend," she added. "So we were together for four years after that, thanks to George."
Sandra was talking about all that on the red carpet of ‘Our brand is Crisis’ premiere in L.A. George Clooney is the producer of the movie and this would be another venture of his and Bullock’s.
Our Brand is Crisis is a political drama featuring Bullock as a campaign specialist. She is driven to lead the campaign of a weak, liberal leader as he is the only hope of saving the people of his country. The film has received an average critique and did not receive much praise. Sandra Bullock’s performance has been the highlight of the movie.
Even the pull of Sandra Bullock’s amazing performance might not be great enough to pull the audience to theaters on a Halloween weekend. The theaters have been in a state of crashing since last week.
The movies have been unsuccessful in attracting movie goers and pictures like “The Last Witch Hunter” and “Jem and the Holograms” were roundly rejected by audiences. The Matt Damon starer “The Martian” and Jack Black’s “Goosebumps” stuck it out last week and they will still be in the running for the no. 1 spot this week.
Despite being Halloween on the weekend, studios are not confident that moviegoers would give up a chance to dress up and head out to the theaters. The lack of horror movies’ release this season explains that.
“A lot of studios aren’t even releasing horror movies, because they’re not confident people will cancel their plans,” Phil Contrino, vice president and chief analyst at BoxOffice.com, told Variety. “People are going to dress up and go out on Saturday. They’re not going to the movies.”

Sadly, movie like “Our Brand is Crisis” and Bradley Cooper starer “Burnt” are also expected to have almost muted openings. Hopefully these movies would stick out till the award season.
