First Official Poster for Oliver Stone's W. Biopic
You've seen the trailer, now see the poster. This actually is a lot more impressive than that first teaser trailer, so give it a shot and enjoy. Our friends at Ain't It Cool News have unveiled the first teaser poster for Oliver Stone's W. biopic and it's a simple yet entertaining first look at Josh Brolin as George W. Bush. If it weren't for the mediocre trailer, this poster would have successfully made me more excited for W., in the sense that I always love when they do "teasers" like this and continue the whole thing later on with a final poster. If you get what I'm saying, I should be interested in this, but so far I'm still not entirely sold. Will Oliver Stone actually pull off a good movie? Check out the poster in full below.
If you haven't already seen that buzzed about teaser trailer, I definitely suggest you'd hit that up, too. All discussion on W. usually ends up becoming political, so comment at will.
W. is directed by Oliver Stone (Platoon, Wall Street, JFK, Nixon, Alexander) with a screenplay written by Stanley Weiser (Project X, Wall Street). Lionsgate recently picked up the distribution rights to W. and will be releasing it on October 17th just before the election.

how stupid. the poster is suppose to be EPIC! And the movie marketed like Transformers and TDK. Jesus do i have to think of everything?

Interesting, but I guess I don't buy Oliver Stone doing a balanced Bush portrayal. I mean, doesn't that sound like Sean Hannity doing an Al Gore documentary? But then again, who knows.

You know a movie will be bad when the tag is GET READY. Get ready for what? For this thing to suck, flop at the box office....?????

This is one of the worst posters I have ever seen... and this movie will be terrible. ANd Oliver Stone making a good movie... best joke I have heard all day. ... Platoon was a fluke... a very good fluke

Man tough crowd for a site devoted to movie lovers. Stone has been chomping at the bit for the last 4 years to do this and show people this side of this guy we call THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES. I believe an earlier movie he did says it best that "the president is demoted to a transient official working deals between the money men and the arms dealers all the while speaking about peace as much as possible".

That is the crappiest poster for a film, EVER!!!!!

The poster aint that bad :/ Not every movie poster should look like the TDK teaser posters... Oliver Stone hasnt really been giving us anything to watch since Platoon and Salvador. Sigh, still im pretty anxious to see this W. I dont really know if Stone was/is a supporter of Bush (doesnt seem so), but for him to make this movie it cant be all hate.. To be honest i just want to see this movie to mayyyyybe understand better why you people voted for him twice!!!..

Not the worst I've ever seen, but not the best either. I really liked the earlier teaser with the dictionary style and the 'Dubya' quotes in for the definition.

Eh...I agree with comment 11...it's not too bad...(but I also agree that "Get Ready" is pretty cheesy, think of all the tag lines they COULD HAVE put here - but honestly I think I'd like it better if they just put the W.) ...as far as the quality of the photo, a photography student could have taken it.

Its actually an interesting poster, the depth of field makes you somewhat intrigued. As for number 7, what do you mean "Platoon" was a fluke? It actually WAS a good movie! Plus it won best picture. "Natural Born Killers" was good too, "JFK" was amazing.... But I've had enough of Stone trying to make controversial movies just for hell of it. Josh Brolin as W.? Doesn't fit the role at all and I mean AT ALL! Neither does Liz Banks as his wife either... This is going to be shit.
