Son of Rambow Trailer

Son of Rambow is Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy director Garth Jennings's second feature film. This premiered at Sundance in 2007 (last year), was a huge hit and a big purchase for Paramount Vantage. The film is finally being released in May this year and will be a must-see for every movie aficionado. Son of Rambow is about two kids who go on an adventure to remake Rambo: First Blood after they catch a bootlegged version of it. This is a great trailer for a great movie, and I highly suggest you check it out.

After seeing the film at Sundance last year, I gave it an 8.5/10 - read the review. It's a wonderful movie with as much charm and heart as comedy and action. The two kids in the lead role are both wonderful and it's a movie I guarantee you won't ever forget.

    looks awesome. hard to believe its the same guy that did hitchhikers.
  • Why's that? Hitchhiker's was a GREAT movie, I really loved it. It didn't hit too big, but I really enjoyed it...
  • Kaiser Soze
    The trailer sold me. In fact,...I am still smiling as I type this at work. Good stuff.
  • Erwin
    Liked it!
  • Much better than I expected.
  • Heckle
    Hate to say it but i agree with Alex. I didnt read the books but i liked Hitchhikers. This also looks good and i've been hearing about it for like a year. Release it sooner.

    Love the idea, but when read it I hoped it wouldnt be just another kids movie and I'm sorry to say that, not only is it just another kids movie, its an extremely formulaic one at that. Its basically the same concept as Be Kind Rewind and this looks much less funny, much more predictable and much less likely to get my money. I actually thought this movie would have been good if I didnt watch past the first 30 seconds of the trailer. Why did they have to add in those retarded problems you see in every single kids movie. Cant I just see one trailer for a kids movie that strays just a little bit from the "parents try to break two best friends up" or "one friend leaves the other to hang out with cooler people". Most of all though, what is the point of watching this movie? I got the entire plot, plus all the best jokes from the trailer (which arent that good anyway). I hate trailers that do that. I predict this movie will suck big time.
  • Genius, loving it. There are some truly terrible trailers out there, but thats great. I'm in. Sorry Alex, but you're worng. Hitchhikers was god awful terrible. I still can't get over that they cut "[The Spaceships] hung in the air exactly the way that bricks dont." While I do agree that the books could drag at times, the 1982 BBC tv series was the pinnacle. Treat yourself and track it down. Slaartibartfast.
  • Wow, it looks so sweet. But it kind of reminds me of this article: It's a brilliant feature on two boys who re-created Indiana Jones from scratch in the 80s. This movie somehow seems to be ripping the idea off of that. Anyhow, it still looks great.

    looks funny

    I saw this last night at the screening! it's a very funny & touching movie about kids and their fantasies, and growing up feeling different and yearning to belong. Definitely fun and you should check it out!
  • Dallas
    Didn't have to finish watching the trailer. Definitely will see this.
