Leaked movie trailer of ‘W.’

From Think Progress

Raw Story reports that a “leaked trailer” of the Oliver Stone’s new biopic W. “suggests the film will focus on George W. Bush’s transition from youthful drunken lout to President of the United States.” George H. W. Bush, played by James Cromwell, asks his son, played by Josh Brolin: “What are you cut out for? Partying? Chasing tail? Driving drunk? Who do you think you are, a Kennedy? You’re a Bush dammit! Act like one.”

Stone tells the LA Times, “We are trying to walk in the footsteps of W and try to feel like he does, to try to get inside his head. But it’s never meant to demean him.” Brolin adds, “It’s not a political movie. It’s a biography.” Wonkette’s movie review: “Just looks terrible, all around.”

There are 2 movies called “W The Movie” and Stone’s is actually the 2nd one. The first, apparently, has been in the works since 2005 and I discovered the trailer for it on youtube.
The ‘other W’ is a lot different and it looks very psychedelic.
