Oliver Stone’s W Trailer Starring Josh Brolin as George W. Bush

The more I see about Oliver Stone’s upcoming George W. Bush biopic (entitled simply W), the more I cannot wait for it to be released. This looks like such a strange and surreal movie, and one that takes a lot of guts to direct. The first trailer for W has now arrived online, and it has only added to my curiosity.

The short video gives us a hint of Bush’s wild college years, and his father’s disapproval, before cycling through the full cast of characters. Brolin seems like a great choice to play George W., but I still can’t figure out if it’s going to be funny or serious… or both. One thing’s for sure, everyone’s going to have an opinion on it, and the movie is sure to inspire all kinds of debate and discussion when it hits theatres on October 17th. Check out the trailer below and see what you think.



  • Yeah I definitely can’t wait to see this either. Looks great.

  • I’m into this thing now. The fact that Oliver Stone hasn’t done anything cool since Platoon doesn’t even hurt.

    I was waiting to see “from the Guys who brought you Epic movie.” Oh and Ryan JFK is one of the best movies in history thank you very much.

  • Well ok then. I never actually sat through that so maybe I’m wrong. I’m just not into courtroom thriller things very much.

  • I don’t think this looks all that good. It will be hard to overcome the ridiculousness of it all– I mean, the near-fisticuffs between GHW and GW is pretty damn hilarious. I wonder how seriously Stone has treated all of this.

    I think he would have benefited from waiting a few years to do this one. It’s just way too surreal to have this come out while the guy is still in office. Not to mention, Stone’s track record over the past few years is a bit sketchy to say the least.

    The only bad thing about doing a biopic before W
    leaves office is that he may oversee an even bigger
    disaster before leaving…..I guess that can be
    a sequel.

  • Josh Brolin did a convincing Dubya, though he reminded me a lot of his cowboy character from No Country for Old Men… over all, i don’t doubt that ‘W.’ will have the effect Oliver Stone desired
