Trailer for George W. Bush biopic leaked

The trailer for "W", Oliver Stone's biopic of George W. Bush, has been leaked online. The film is set for release in October in the run up to the presidential elections.

Featuring Josh Brolin as Dubya, the film charts the rise of the current US president from a beer-guzzling party animal all the way to the Oval Office. The trailer features James Cromwell as George Bush Senior giving George Junior a dressing down.

"If I remember correctly, you didn't like the sporting goods job," Bush Sr. says in the trailer. "Working in the investment firm wasn't for you either, or the oil rig job. You didn't exactly finish up with flying colors in the Air National Guard, junior."

W is Stone's second biopic of an American president after his 1995 film Nixon. Tricky Dick, however, died in 1994 and had left office 20 years earlier. So it will be interesting to see what impact, if any, "W" will have on the upcoming presidential campaign.
