If a Dick Cheney Movie Wasn't of Interest, this VICE Trailer Should Change Your Mind...Written by James Zahn
The idea of a movie about former Vice President Dick Cheney might not sit well with some. He's a polarizing figure - but perhaps one whose full story has yet to be told. If such a film didn't seem appealing, the trailer for VICE just might change your mind. The unexpectedly badass trailer shows off some impressive makeup and performances that we're likely to be hearing about for some time to come. From Director Adam McKay (Talladega Nights), VICE stars Christian Bale (Dick Cheney), Amy Adams (Lynne Cheney), Steve Carrell (Donal Rumsfeld), Sam Rockwell (George W. Bush), Jesse Plemons, Alison Pill (Mary Cheney), Lily Rabe (Liz Cheney), Tyler Perry (Colin Powell), Justin Kirk (Scooter Libby), LisaGay Hamilton (Condoleezza Rice), Shea Whigham (Wayne Vincent) and Eddie Marsan (Paul Wolfovitz).
