Freshly leaked to YouTube is Oliver Stone’s trailer for “W“.
The script pages were previously leaked, and he’s racing to have the movie in theaters by election season. The trailer isn’t bad – though obviously it’s a rush job. There’s no cartoonish Will Ferrell impersonation, or cheap shots . The more I hear, the more curious I am about this project. When he has a mind to do it, Stone is a great filmmaker, and nothing fuels his engine like controversy.
Truly, the most controversial thing thing Stone could do is to treat W like a legitimate tragic hero.
And what’s downright eerie is the casting – Rumsfeld, Bush Sr, and Rove look a little off, but Rice, Cheney, Powell, and Laura Bush are frightening dead ringers.
See it here, and click it quick before the lawyers pull it down.
