New Teaser Trailer for Oliver Stone's "W"

by

Here's the first trailer for Oliver Stone's controversial bio-pic about George W. Bush, due out this fall.

I haven't been following this movie that closely — I just don't think I can sit through another liberal tale of woe about how Bush has ruined the country. I mean, I go to the movies to escape.

But after watching this, I'm curious, mainly because this trailer made me root for him. I think it was supposed to make him look dumb, but I thought it made him look kinda cool. Maybe that's just my "I-have-a-newborn-at-home" sleep deprivation talking.

It's eerie how all of the actors resemble the real-life characters they're playing. The dude made up to look like Karl Rove is especially creepy.
