Is Ollie Stone Back In the Saddle? And Buckaroo Banzai Obama Battles More Makeup-Wearing Pigs

The once terrific Oliver Stone hasn't made a decent movie in years, but he's hired Babe: Pig in the City farmer James Cromwell to co-star as George H. W. Bush in his epic comedy, W., alongside Josh Brolin staring as George W. Bush, the mind-blowing Thandie Newton as Condoleezza Ric, Richard "where's that guy been for the past decade" Dreyfuss as Dick Cheney, and a host of other intriguing casting picks. Could Stone finally be BACK from the brink? The trailer gives us hope:

While you wait with bated breath for Stone to flop or fly, have some Dr. Zaius Zaius Nation funtime, as Captain America Dick Cheney liberates a village....

.... McCain and Palin launch their Plan 9 From Outer Space ....

.... Miss Alaska rocks her body while the McMaverick yucks it up in a tux ....

... and a heroic Obama-man adventures across the 8th dimension.
