First Vice trailer unveils a Christian Bale unrecognizable as Dick Cheney

Watching Adam McKay, one of the men behind Funny or Die, Anchorman, and Step Brothers transition to more politically charged films has been fascinating. You can see the early stages in the end credits of the infographic-heavy end credits of The Other Guys, culminating in Oscar gold for his film The Big Short. McKay is following it up with Vice, a biographical film starring Christian Bale as former U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney.

The first trailer for this film shows just how dramatic Bale's weight gain for the role was. No prosthetics here—that belly is legit. This shouldn't be too big a surprise for anyone who's followed Bale's career, as he constantly loses and gains weight to an extreme depending on the role—he's been skinny for The Machinist and The Fighter, buff for the Dark Knight trilogy, and quite large for American Hustle. It is downright frightening.
