With less than a month before the release of Oliver Stone's latest film, W., more footage is making its way to the masses. As is usually the case with Stone, it's certainly worth talking about it.

The theatrical trailer that has just been released online via Yahoo! Movies takes a similar to approach to the television spot that has been making it's rounds and then expands upon it with new footage.

While the initial teaser for the film made use of George Thorogood's "One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer," Stone has chosen to use "Once In A Lifetime" by The Talking Heads for this latest round of trailers. The new song choice gives the footage an even more frenzied pace than the teaser had.

The new images in the theatrical trailer are also worth taking a closer look at.

There's Bush on the toilet discussing moving out of his father's shadow while Laura Bush is in bed.


Then, there's the image viewed from inside a diner of a man carrying what appears to be a large cross. This could possibly be a slice of the "born again" phase of Bush's life.


The new footage also gives more screen time to Ellen Burstyn as Barbara Bush and Richard Dreyfuss as Dick Cheney.

W. hits theatres on October 17.
