Annapurna Pictures has released the first trailer for Vice. Writer/director Adam Mckay chronicles Dick Cheney's rise to political power with Christian Bale once again transforming himself physically to portray the former vice president. Sam Rockwell is George W. Bush, Amy Adams is Lynn Cheney and Steve Carell rounds out the stellar cast as Donald Rumsfeld. McKay, who was known for Will Ferrell comedies, took a tremendous left turn with his absolutely brilliant film, The Big Short. Vice looks similarly biting and compelling. This looks like what Oliver Stone's W. should have been. Vice opens December 21.
