Now that the first bit of footage from Oliver Stone's W. is out in the open, what will the reaction be?

A very controversial film is on the horizon, and it should come as no surprise that Oliver Stone is behind it.

This October, when Stone's George W. Bush biopic hits theatres nationwide there is bound to be heated discussion. Political pundits on the left and the right will dissect every scene and they will view the film in radically different ways. Meanwhile, main-stream audiences across the country will either consider W. an essential look into our recent history or a joke project that was filmed too soon.

With the release of the teaser trailer for the film, we now have our first live-action glimpse into Stone's work.

The gang is all here, and Stone has assembled a very talented crew of actors to inhabit the Bush universe.

This trailer alone will probably cause controversy, since it focuses mainly on Bush's rowdy, pre-Presidency days and utilizes George Thorogood's drinking anthem "One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer" as the soundtrack.

It remains to be seen which performances will be viewed as borderline parodies and which will be seen as chillingly on target. Or maybe it will be a bit of both. One thing is for sure, this movie will have people talking.
