A Few More New Posters for The Boat That Rocked

The best part of Richard Curtis' The Boat That Rocked is its marketing. We were first introduced to this movie via some colorful and brilliantly designed posters back in November, then we saw the rather lackluster trailer, but now we've got two more new colorful and brilliant posters. Thanks to Empire for debuting these, because without them, we would have never known that this movie even existed! Additionally, we probably wouldn't have even thought twice about The Boat That Rocked if it weren't for these kinds of posters, because that actual footage in the trailer didn't seem that great. Enjoy!

Seen on the poster to the left, going clockwise starting in the top left corner: Rhys Darby, Nick Frost, Bill Nighy, Rhys Ifans, Kenneth Branagh, Gemma Arterton, Chris O'Dowd, Philip Seymour Hoffman, and Tom Wisdom (I think?) in the middle. Definitely looks like one hell of a dynamic, and colorful, cast!

The Boat That Rocked is an ensemble comedy in which the romance takes place between the young people of the '60s and pop music. It's about a band of rogue DJs that captivated Britain, playing the music that defined a generation and standing up to a government that, incomprehensibly, preferred jazz. The Count, a big, brash, American god of the airwaves; Quentin, the boss of Radio Rock -- a pirate radio station in the middle of the North Sea that's populated by an eclectic crew of rock and roll DJs; Gavin, the greatest DJ in Britain who has just returned from his drug tour of America to reclaim his rightful position; Dave, an ironic, intelligent and cruelly funny co-broadcaster; and a fearsome British government official out for blood against the drug takers and lawbreakers of a once-great nation.

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 will hit theaters in the UK in early April, but does not have an official release date for the US just yet.

Tim "Cloverfield" on Feb 2, 2009


Yes. He is an amazing cog in the FOTC universe.

~480-405 Buttons on Feb 2, 2009


He doesn't have a real name. He will always be Murray.

Red --- Buttons on Feb 2, 2009


British comedy! Heck yeah!!!

Aravena on Feb 2, 2009


All Buttons have lost their collective minds. This is going to be fantastic with a collective of REAL ACTORS! Talent Buttons, you see? Real TALENT!

D-9 on Feb 2, 2009


I never said Rhys doesn't have talent.

Red --- Buttons on Feb 2, 2009


Christ Buttons........Yea we know, and nobody said you did. ARRRGGGHHHH What D-9 is TRYING TO PROVE TO YOU IS PROVIDING a VENUE SITUATION of TALENTED ACTORS as in this suggestion of "Rock the Boat" You say N. Cage is the Man, but he is the worst. You really are runing our First Showing experience. Truley you are the ignorant Nemesis. It's not even funny anymore.

Tim "Cloverfield" on Feb 2, 2009


Well that is shame.

Red --- Buttons on Feb 2, 2009


I meant "Boat that Rocked" sorry. Buttons is so frustraiting, the First Showing experience should be fun and informative. But a Nemesis of any color or number Button is just not fun anymore. And Pirate radio in England was alot of fun. Long live the shortwave.

Tim "Cloverfield" on Feb 2, 2009


Score Clover 2 Buttons 0

feohatestheworld on Feb 2, 2009


I love this site just as much as anyone else. I think there just has to be some one to defend Cage. Rorschach would want some one to fight for him.

Red --- Buttons on Feb 2, 2009


Leave me out of this. The Pirate radio thing was such a movement back in the day to let the youth of Britian listen to so many forms and artists they had never heard of. What a time of change back then. I hope this film indeed touches on the events.

Rorschach on Feb 2, 2009


wow yeah, all their posters and stuff have looked really cool

Susana on Feb 2, 2009


Actually, it's Tullulah Riley not Gemma Arterton.
