Here’s the Trailer for “Vice,” Starring Christian Bale as Former VP Dick Cheney, from the Director of “The Big Short”


Here’s the trailer for Adam McKay’s “Vice,” about Bush vice president Dick Cheney. Christian Bale is unrecognizable as Cheney and completely spooky. Sam Rockwell looks like a great Bush, although I’m sure McKay was tempted to cast Will Ferrell– who’s played Bush frequently. Amy Adams and Steve Carell co-star. The Halliburton stuff is going to be wild. Can’t wait for this movie. I hope Annapurna Pictures can pull it off.
