Must Watch: Paramount's Rain of Madness Mockumentary Trailer

Before the thunder… comes the madness. If you're a true film buff, you should be familiar with a documentary titled Hearts of Darkness about the making of Francis Ford Coppola's Apocalypse Now. Paramount has just unleashed their killer marketing tactic for Tropic Thunder - a mockumentary titled Rain of Madness about the making of the film that completely mimics Hearts of Darkness. I'm going to completely admit that hot damn this looks amazing. I thought Tropic Thunder looked fantastic and now they throw this out there?! The summer is definitely not over yet! As far as I can tell, this is literally a complete documentary about the making of the movie that they're making within Tropic Thunder that I'm guessing will be available online. This is absolutely brilliant - bravo Paramount! Be sure to catch this trailer.
Watch the trailer for Rain of Madness:
You can find more info on the mockumentary at the official website: rainofmadness.com.
Tropic Thunder is directed by Ben Stiller (Zoolander) and written by Etan Cohen ("King of the Hill", Idiocracy) and well-known actor Justin Theroux (who also stars in the film). The movie stars Ben Stiller, Jack Black, Robert Downey Jr., Brandon T. Jackson, Jay Baruchel, and Steve Coogan. Tropic Thunder arrives in theaters everywhere on August 15th this summer.

I think this looks really funny, but I just have to say how much Steve Coogan and that little sneer of his annoys the hell out of me.

"In war, the enemy attacks not from without, but within". Funny as hell right off the bat.

If they had been playing up the Hearts of Darkness angle from the beginning of marketing Tropic Thunder I would be way more excited. The director is young Coppola incarnate. I'll definitely see this movie now. Not Rain of Madness, Tropic Thunder.
