New W. Posters Discovered - Anyone Can Grow Up to Be President
With the Democratic National Convention starting up in Denver in just about a week, Lionsgate is smartly targeting that city for some extra promo boosts for Oliver Stone's W. I'm not sure that pasting posters of Bush around a city full of democrats will actually help, but it is a good way to grab the attention of politicos and democrats alike. We've finally got high res clean versions of the two posters, in addition to a billboard, and they're rather awkward. I'm liking these a lot more than anything else we've seen for W. previously, but I really still don't know what to think about this movie! Good? Bad? What is Oliver Stone thinking?!
The phrase on the posters says "A Life Misunderestimated" while the one on the billboard says "Anyone Can Grow Up to Be President." That last one makes me smile - because it couldn't be more accurate!
W. is directed by Oliver Stone (Platoon, Wall Street, JFK, Nixon, Alexander) with a screenplay written by Stanley Weiser (Project X, Wall Street). The film is a chronicle on the life and presidency of George W. Bush, as portrayed by actor Josh Brolin. Lionsgate picked up the distribution rights to W. and will be releasing it on October 17th just before the election.
