The second trailer for Oliver Stone’s George W. Bush biopic features the Talking Heads’ Once in a Lifetime, and fittingly. The new clips show some of the behind-the-scenes meetings that went in the White House just after 9/11, and the turmoil within the Bush family over the legacy of Bush senior. We also get glimpses of the other players who shaped the Bush White House, including peeks at Condoleezza Rice (Thandie Newton), Karl Rove (Toby Jones), General Colin Powell (Jeffrey Wright), Dick Cheney (Richard Dreyfuss), as well as First Lady Laura Bush (Elizabeth Banks). This film will be huge, and marks the first film about a U.S. President still in office. It will be in select theaters on October 17, 2008. Does anyone else smell Oscar nods here?
