W Trailer - a preview of the new Oliver Stone movie about George W. Bush

Here's the trailer for "W", the new Oliver Stone biopic about George W. Bush.
Define "trailer": What we used to call a preview.

Pause at 1:28 to see who those vaguely familiar looking actors are.

I thought Stone did a great job with "JFK", and an even better job with "Nixon". (The Nixon one was very even-handed, which surprised me.)
Since I work in the freight, logisitics, and transportation industry, that qualifies me to pass judgement on movies.
Anyway, this one looks good. They've already gotten the casting right.

Maybe you've heard the old saying "Washington DC is Hollywood for ugly people". Well, no surprise that everyone got a pleasant makeover by having much more attractive people play them... Cromwell as GHWB is a good match, Dreyfus as Cheney -spot on, and according to this site http://www.slashfilm.com/2008/05/08/first-look-josh-brolin-as-george-w-bush-in-oliver-stones-w/
Josh Brolin has got the look down.

However, Thandie Newton as Condie? That's and upgrade! I'm with Conan in that Snoop Dogg would've been perfect for Condaleeza Rice!

And, hate to do it - but the theme song? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vwsZzMmAFrg&feature=related
