Watch the movie trailer for Oliver Stone’s “W.” starring James Brolin as U.S. President George W. Bush.
The trailer begins with a young ‘Dub-yah’ in his college years doing fun things like partying, chasing tail, driving drunk and getting thrown in jail. ‘Dub-yah’ then receives a few choice words from Bush senior who asks “Who do you think you are, a Kennedy?” We then see a roll call of the cast including Elizabeth Banks as Laura Bush, James Cromwell as George Herbert Walker Bush, Ellen Burstyn as Barbara Bush, Thandie Newton as Condoleezza Rice, Jeffrey Wright as Colin Powell, Scott Glenn as Donald Rumsfeld, and Ioan Gruffud as Tony Blair.
Whether you love him or hate him, there is no question that George W. Bush is one of the most controversial public figures in recent memory. In an unprecedented undertaking, acclaimed director Oliver Stone is bringing the life of our 43rd President to the big screen as only he can. “W.” takes viewers through Bush’s eventful life — his struggles and triumphs, how he found both his wife and his faith, and of course the critical days leading up to Bush’s decision to invade Iraq.
