First Look: Oliver Stone's Complete White House Cabinet
We've been covering Oliver Stone's W. quite intently over the last few months and probably won't stop all the way through its release. We've seen the trailer, plenty of posters, and quite a bit more - so what's left? Well, Vanity Fair has unveiled a glorious photo featuring the entire White House Cabinet that's in the film. From George W. Bush all the way down to Ari Fleischer, Donald Rumsfeld, and so many more. The photo can be seen below in addition to the latest print copies of Variety Fair, if you're so inclined to tape this up on your wall. Take a look if you dare, because it might just infuriate a few of you!
From the article: "Stone—who served in Vietnam, unlike the president—has singular standing to reimagine a chief executive whose actual over-the-top actions have sometimes managed to make even the wildest conspiracy theories seem tame." I'm still mildly intrigued by this movie and will probably catch a screening of it as soon as I possibly can. For now, we'll hold out until we see a second trailer.

Bush, Thandie Newton as Condoleezza Rice, Rob Corddry as Ari Fleischer, Bruce McGill as George Tenet, and Scott Glenn as Donald Rumsfeld.
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.
