The Boat That Rocked Trailer

Ever since we first debuted the great set of posters for The Boat That Rocked, about the pirate radio DJs from the 1960s, I've been anxiously awaiting the chance to see a trailer and get a feel for what it's all about. Thanks to our friends at Film School Rejects, we now have that chance, but unfortunately it wasn't exactly what I was expecting. It does look funny and very off-the-wall, but it almost looks too quirky for my own tastes. I thought the walking-into-a-pole gag was no longer funny? Anyway, enough with my own bickering, because this still has a lot to offer other moviegoers and could end up great in the end anyway.

Watch the new trailer for The Boat That Rocked:

The Boat That Rocked is both written and directed by British filmmaker Richard Curtis, who only last directed Love Actually, but has written and produced numerous British hit TV series and movies. Bill Nighy, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Kenneth Branagh, Nick Frost, Rhys Ifans, Gemma Arterton, and January Jones all star in this. The film is being distributed by Universal Pictures here in the US. The Boat That Rocked is set to arrive in theaters sometime in early 2009. Stay tuned for plenty more!

Very cool idea. Enough fun variety in the actors that I'd be entertained the whole way through.

it looks like a great movie with a horrible-cut trailer.

Besides the pole gag and the underwear thing, it looked pretty decent. I was afraid it wouldn't be accessible and I'd miss the humor but it looked quite funny, especially PSH

Cool. I'd watch it for Hoffman (should work with Kevin Smith) and Frost.

I love the narrator’s delivery. All trailers should be like this one.
