Hokey smokes! Have you seen this yet? It’s the teaser trailer for the new Oliver Stone film, entitled W.. According to what we see in the trailer, it’s about the transformation of the current president from sloppy-drunk party boy to humbled (or triumphant?) victor over the parental authority figure (that other president). The swoony music used toward the end of the teaser (“What a Wonderful World”) had me expecting animated fawns, raccoons and bunny rabbits to converge from the sides of the screen and eat out of W.’s hand. This movie is surely going to piss a lot of people off, or maybe it will wither and go away, like The Reagans did.
The casting looks great, particularly Toby Jones as Karl Rove, and Jeffrey Wright as General Colin Powell.
