TRAILER: "War, Inc." vs. "Dr. Strangelove"

Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb was a hilarious political satire from the 60s. War, Inc. is a dark political satire about the commercialization of war, where a former US president's company takes over a country called Turagistan and orders a hit on his main competitor, a Middle East oil minister. It stars John Cusack as a depressed assassin named Brand (wink! wink!), Joan Cusack as a Tamerlane employee, Marisa Tomei as a reporter, Ben Kingsley as the oil minister, and Hilary Duff as a pop star who's getting married to a politician, but has the hots for Cusack--John not Joan.

My question is: What are the chances that Cusack's film will be as poignant as Dr. Strangelove?
