Teaser for "W" has arrived!

And now for some thoughts on:

1. The movie overall:.....I can't'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
