Teaser for "W" has arrived!
And now for some thoughts on:
1. The movie overall:.....I can't tell....it's either going to be a good Primary Colors-esque semi satire, or it'll just be a huge misfire; It could look as though they rushed the project too much just to get it out in time for election year...
2. The Cast, as broken down by letter grades:
Josh Brolin as W: B
Elizabeth Banks as Laura Bush: B+
James Cromwell as Bush Sr. : C- (a good actor, but his face is just too strikingly different to make a believable Bush Sr.)
Ellen Burstyn as Barbara Bush: B
Toby Jones as Karl Rove: B+
Jeffrey Wright as Colin Powell: A-
Ioan Gruffud as Tony Blair: D+ (why couldn't they just get Michael Sheen?)
Thandie Newton as Condoleeza Rice: A+
Scott Glenn as Don Rumsfeld: B-
Richard Dreyfuss as Dick Cheney: B
