New Desk Series of Posters for Oliver Stone's W.
Given its controversial nature, we're definitely interested in every last marketing morsel that comes out for Oliver Stone's W. Last week at the Democratic National Convention we not only eyed a well-done billboard, but also a couple posters that were frames of Josh Brolin as George W. Bush, sitting and pondering something at his White House desk (perhaps what he thinks this movie will do to his career). MovieWeb brings us four more posters in that set, the collection of which is a damn smart execution of the President's various emotional states as leader of the free world (at least from Stone's point-of-view). Not to mention, Brolin has done an amazing job in looking like the 43rd President, wouldn't you say?
We've seen the teaser trailer already and we're just about a month out ’til W. hits the theaters, so what is everyone thinking? Personally, Bush has become a tad bit irrelevant nowadays what with the focus on Obama, McCain, Palin, and so on. If W. goes in the satirical direction, I think Stone might actually have a hit on his hands. Whatever sort of frustrating look back comes out of W., the enthusiasm for the next administration (whichever it may be) seems strong enough to overshadow. Continuing to see more of Brolin as Bush, too, can potentially, dare I say it, make the President a bit more likable on some level just by association to the great actor. I could totally be wrong, but I think W. might actually turn out well not only for Stone but, ultimately, for Bush as well. Talk amongst yourselves and comment below, but let's leave out the straight-up political pissyness this time please. What do you think of this movie?
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.
