Don’t watch this trailer around your kids. Or your boss. (Unless they’re awesome.)
And don’t watch this if you believe the man who steered our nation out of the Great Depression, helped lead the Allies to victory over fascism in World War II, and strengthened America’s social safety net through Social Security deserves to be treated with only total, unwavering respect.
But if you like your history served with a hefty helping of crack, then by all means — enjoy this profanity and blood soaked trailer for FDR: American Badass, starring Barry Bostwick as the man with the cigarette holder clenched in his smile.
If the Tim Burton-produced Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter is the responsible older brother who went to college, started a nice family, and went on to a great and respectable career, then FDR: American Badass is the drug-addled little bro who gets arrested for disorderly conduct every time he leaves his parents’ basement. I mean both of those things as compliments.
Right now, FDR: AB doesn’t have a release date, but it may play an upcoming festival and sales agents are negotiating with studios to secure distribution for this landmark of American cinema. So watch the trailer embedded after the jump, and click through for EW’s exclusive Q&A with director Garrett Brawith, as well as a first-look at this movie’s take on Abe Lincoln, a.k.a. Hercules star Kevin Sorbo. READ FULL STORY »
