At the Cannes Film Festival, Lionsgate revealed the teaser poster for Oliver Stone’s upcoming George W. Bush biopic, W. The poster gives a straight edged, satirical, honest look at the life and times of a man that once uttered the words:

I call upon all nations to do everything they can to stop these terrorist killers. Now, watch this drive.

It’s amazing people actually voted for this guy… twice.

Official Plot Synopsis: Whether you love him or hate him, there is no question that George W. Bush is one of the most controversial public figures in recent memory. In an unprecedented undertaking, acclaimed director Oliver Stone is bringing the life of our 43rd President to the big screen as only he can. W takes viewers through Bush’s eventful life — his struggles and triumphs, how he found both his wife and his faith, and of course the critical days leading up to Bush’s decision to invade Iraq.

W stars Josh Brolin as George W. Bush, Elizabeth Banks as Laura Bush, James Cromwell as George Herbert Walker Bush, Academy Award® winner Ellen Burstyn as Barbara Bush, Thandie Newton as Condoleezza Rice, Jeffrey Wright as Colin Powell, Scott Glenn as Donald Rumsfeld, and Ioan Gruffud as Tony Blair.
