23. My feeling was that the President is supposed to be a depiction of a far RW President

I'm getting serious Evangelical Xtian vibes from him in the trailer, and that his party has taken power in DC somehow.

Also at one point in the trailer, it states that the Western Alliance will reach DC by July 4th, which indicates that the government in power is losing badly. It also has the President giving orders to shoot any journalists on sight inside the Capital, which is very RW.

Personally, I think I will go see this. I love a lot of the movies the director has worked on previously.

And if it is what I think it is, it's a good commentary on the worst-case scenario if the far right takes power.

I normally don't enjoy dystopian movies, but this looks like it might be fun to watch. Oopsie Daisy Feb 2024 #1
The director is more of a social satirist/commentator Cuthbert Allgood Feb 2024 #2
