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.

C'mon Alex you have to know this is the best marketing to market in Democratic convention. Because we all know that they hate bush and we all know where Oliver stone is going, you can see that in the first hires picture with W's boot. we know what it is going to be, Lets just hope stone preserves his own dignity by not just trying to bash the guy for who he is but trying to tell the story which I believe to be fascinating and entertaining and lets hope there are no much speculations Just be a worthwhile perspective of a very infamous lifestory, for what its worth

I believe this is going to be a total hit piece. Nothing but distortions, half-truths, and outright lies. Those that support President Bush will see it for the lie is it and those who hate President Bush will believe everything in it as the God's honest truth. Maybe President Bush or someone else depicted in this movie will sue for slander?

Jeep Fu. Because the Republicans are so renowned for their accurate facts, truth, and honesty.
