Watch: Christian Bale Plays Dick Cheney in First Trailer for ‘Vice’

Adam McKay's new film hits theaters Christmas Day

The first trailer for Adam McKay’s The Big Short follow-up, Vice, has just been released. The trailer shows the physical transformation of steel-jawed Christian Bale, who put on over 100 pounds to play the former Vice President, Dick Cheney.

Bale has put tons of work into both the appearance and mannerisms of Cheney, performing as a very calculated, manipulative former Vice President.

Watch the trailer below.

The film is about how Cheney changed the role of the Vice President to make decisions that largely impacted the world. Amy Adams plays Lynne, Cheney’s wife, and Steve Carell and Sam Rockwell play his colleagues Donald Rumsfeld and George W. Bush respectively,

Vice is set to hit theaters on Christmas Day.
