Why yes, that is FDR in a weaponized wheelchair.
It was just a short while ago that artist Jason Heuser made paintings of American presidents fighting classic monsters, and one of his paintings was a battlemech Franklin Delano Roosevelt which he also turned into the fake movie poster to the right. What he probably didn’t know was that his poster was very close to Hollywood truth, as FDR: American Badass! is a real movie coming out this year (four swearword-filled videos below).
The movie synopsis — which I couldn’t have made up no matter how many Four Lokos I chugged — is, “FDR rides a ‘wheelchair of death’ to stop the world from werewolves who carry the polio virus, including werewolf versions of Hitler, Mussolini, and Emperor Hirohito.”
This concept has turned into a movie inexplicably starring Golden Globe winner Barry Bostwick (who would strike the Sun if it insulted him), Ray Wise, Kevin Sorbo (“Hercules”), the landlady from Kingpin, and Tom Cruise’s cousin. Even though their official website expired last month and I’ve never heard of the writer or director (Ross Patterson and Garrett Brawith, respectively), I still suspect this isn’t just an elaborate practical joke based on the number of well-known actors involved and the number of set pieces used in the red band trailer. Also, I so badly want this to be real based on this line of dialogue alone:
“A werewolf attacked you. It bit your leg. It release a small stream of . . . You’ve got the polio, Frank.”
“Does my c*ck still work?”
Mister President! Such salty language. Speaking of which, the trailer and three promos below are full of salty language, so get your headphones up and your Four Loko at the ready. FDR has to have his Loko, son.
