(just jared)   First look at Josh Brolin as George W. Bush in Oliver Stone's new biopic. Also stars Rob Corddry as Ari Fleischer and Thandie Newton as Condoleezza Rice. Wait... what?   (justjared.buzznet.com) divider line 91

ragunax: Can we stop this garbage movie thing already?
Why? Idiocy is good for cheap laughs.
 
2008-05-08 10:02:55 AM  
Condi's gonna Thandie Newton? Dammit, I'm gonna be thinking she's hot again!
 
2008-05-08 10:08:00 AM  
When is this coming out? Hopefully not before the US general election.

I came in here to say that Elizabeth Banks does not get enough recognition for being hot.
 
2008-05-08 10:08:56 AM  
Brolin looks good, but Elizabeth Banks is too hot and normal to play Pickles.

Banks just doesn't have that "Stepford Serial Killer-I want to eat your grandchild-I found my pills and took them all" look in her eyes that Laura Bush has.
 
2008-05-08 10:09:31 AM  
I think this movie will be like the Bush administration - too long, not very good, but not as bad as some people make it, and definitely not as good as others claim, will come in waaay over budget, and bomb overseas.

Oliver Stone is the George W. Bush of cinema.
 
2008-05-08 10:14:41 AM  
Thandie Newton is really the only reason I watched MI2
 
2008-05-08 10:14:44 AM  
Why didn't they just get George to play himself? He isn't doing anything right now, I am sure he had the time.

Or they could have had Frank Caliendo (or however the F it is spelled) - he looks just like him in the commercials


No, not really

I think I love you.
 
2008-05-08 10:38:27 AM  
So do we get to see Laura kill someone with her car, or are they going to leave out all that pre-marriage stuff and get right to the failed presidency?


/it should say "The End" at the beginning of this film
 
2008-05-08 10:38:32 AM  
I would go to this if I was allowed to throw rotten vegetables at the screen.

I'd hit it.
 
2008-05-08 10:40:52 AM  
Holy crap! Condi should be so lucky (Possibly NSFW).

I'm sure Banks can pull it off. But on that cover she looks more like Parker Posey pretending to be Laura.

So Tony Blair is being played by "Mr. Fantastic"? Huh. Not sure if that's apt or not.
 
2008-05-08 10:44:23 AM  
i think they should get javier bardem to do a cameo, just kinda peeking through the window of the oval office

HA! Better yet - cast him as Karl Rove.

Ollie. Ollie. Please don't make this movie. You've already exploited one national tragedy in the service of a thudding, charmless bore of a film. Don't do it again. Please.
 
2008-05-08 10:53:27 AM  
This movie is going to be a whole bag of crazy fun! Why would anyone not want to see it, it's Oliver Stone, it's about an unpopular president and supposedly it's completely out of touch with all fact. I love it!

If only he would have made the 9/11 movie that everyone thought he would make. Not that sentimental and pretty bland stuff he put on the screen. Is he trying to stay away from the crazy image he built for himself post "JFK"? He needs to embrace it and hopefully this movie is it.

God it's exciting!

I'll always sit through a viewing of Born on the Fourth of July just to hear Tom Cruise yelling "PENIS! PENIS! BIG FARKING ERECT PENIS, MOM! PENIIIIIISSSSSSS!!!!"

Oliver should make this a rock opera. It has the potential of becoming the Rocky Horror Picture Show of this generation.

Imagine the midnight screenings at the local AMC with trannys dressing as Barbara and Laura throwing Pacha and Turshi at the screen at the proper moments and squirting their water pistols filled with motor oil and blood.

It'll be a hoot...
 
2008-05-08 11:02:27 AM  
if you cover up brolin's hair in that picture he looks more like a white Obama than W.

this movie looks really dumb. i grow tired of hollywood trying to be political. all the iraq movies flopped. lions for lambs flopped. just give us some good farking popcorn movies and leave us alone.
 
2008-05-08 11:03:38 AM  
It will be interesting to see if anyone actually spends hard earned money to watch this movie. I predict that it will be another bomb in Stone's portfolio (like he really needs another one).

W is like every other ordinary guy, but with a major speech/thought impediment. You have your work cut out for you to mold that into an interesting story, Mr. Stone.

Do one on Reagan, if you want to make money. Yes, even with your batshiat crazy slant. At least people will see it.

I don't know- that's post two babies and she's still fine. You could probably dig her up three hundred years after her death and find her body unspoilt and smelling of roses.

No, wait. That was Catherine of Sienna. My bad.
 
2008-05-08 11:12:07 AM  
is there any possible way this movie won't be a horrible chunk of steaming shiat?

James Cromwell should make a fine GHWBush. He is outstanding in everything he does.

Miggity: is there any possible way this movie won't be a horrible chunk of steaming shiat?

The aliens from "Independence Day" arrive and blow up the White House, and the Senate, and Schwarzenegger emerges from the rubble all terminator like, tearing off his meat suit as he does and leads the country to victory over the aliens?

Just a thought.

If.. Make that when I dig her up, her body will be spoiled and smelling of me in short order.

Well, in grammar school, I don't think we understood the full implications.

I went to catholic grammar school- I definitely understood the implication.
 
2008-05-08 11:39:24 AM  
I don't care how far they have to distort facts... Condi/Thandie needs to have a sex scene, for real.

Anyway, don't know if I'll see it (unless my wish - see above - comes true), but it'll be worth watching the press, message boards, etc. in the final run-up to its release. "Oh, the huge manatee!"

Agreed. Good pun, too. +1.

Hush! Leave a fantasy alone!

rbaron71: When is this coming out? Hopefully not before the US general election.

Supposedly, he's hustled it through the development process and is looking to get it out sometime around September. Which will almost guarantee that it will follow the Oliver Stone movie tradition of fairness, coherence, plausibility, and historical accuracy.

Really? By what grade? I remember having a vague idea of the physics involved, but not the full implications of the execution.
 
2008-05-08 11:40:30 AM  
I hope this is as historically accurate as JFK. Oliver Stone is a f*cking idiot, and idiot who made some pretty good films years and years ago, but an idiot nonetheless.

They'll need Gary Oldman's hair stylist from the Fifth Element, and they'll also need to borrow Michael Clarke Duncan's teeth.

They should use Madonna in blackface instead.

A-one, a-two, a-three. *crunch* A-three.
