How much does it cost to buy an Oscar? That seems to be the question asked by the following trailer for Charlie Wilson's War:
About Texas Congressman Charlie Wilson and his help in launching an operation to aid the Afghan Mujahideen, the film stars Tom Hanks, Julia Roberts and Phillip Seymour Hoffman. It's Universal's big studio picture for the end of the year and is directed by Mike Nichols, best known for The Graduate but maintaining solid work for the past three decades on Postcards from the Edge and Angels in America. We'll see how it fares this winter opening against both the action-filled Alien vs. Predator 2 and the artistic There Will Be Blood this December 25.
