An American epic that blows the lid off what true power looks like.
VICE explores the epic story about how a bureaucratic Washington insider quietly became the most powerful man in the world as Vice-President to George W. Bush, reshaping the country and the globe in ways that we still feel today.
Christian Bale, Amy Adams, Steve Carell, Sam Rockwell, Jesse Plemons, Alison Pill, Lily Rabe, Tyler Perry, Justin Kirk, LisaGay Hamilton, Shea Whigham and Eddie Marsan.
Christian Bale’s latest Oscar-baiting dramatic physical transformation has been unveiled in the first trailer for Vice, Adam McKay’s biopic of former US vice-president Dick Cheney.
Bale, who lost 60lbs for 2004’s The Machinist, gained 40lbs (as well as a bald cap) to play the part of George W Bush’s controversial vice-president. The film charts Cheney’s rise through the administrations of Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford and George HW Bush, before apparently brokering a deal with Bush Jr to heighten the powers of the VP.
The film is due in US cinemas on Christmas Day and in the UK on 1 February 2019.
