Another Brilliant Trailer for Richard Curtis' The Boat That Rocked

March 14, 2009

The Boat That Rocked Trailer

Even though we've already seen two great trailers for The Boat That Rocked, a third new one has popped up recently that is even better than the other two! Though, I've got to say, at this point I've had enough - I just want to see this! It looks so frickin' good and I'm tired of sitting through so many great trailers just to realize we've got to wait another six months to see it. I really love the way this trailer is put together, with a little bit of creative CGI magic at the beginning, and best of all, it's progression through a short story that parallels what actually happens in the movie, into a triumphant and exciting finish. Please enjoy this!

Watch the latest new trailer for The Boat That Rocked:

i was prepared not to like this but philip seymour hoffman and the guy from flight of the concords are awesome and the trailer actually looks pretty good. although richard curtis can be a bit too sentimental for my liking

Boy, this is a first for Richard Curtis. He has done a film without Hugh Grant!!! BUGGER ME!! Anywho, this should be pretty funny.

Pirate Radio changed the UK. I would listen to this with an ear plug on the shortwave band so my parents would not hear me. I cannot wait for this.

When I watched the first trailer for this, I thought it would be a waste of life. I am happily eating my words. It looks AWESOME! I don't know why I ever doubted. Philip Seymour Hoffman. Done. Sold. Can't wait.

God dammit, August is too far away for this brilliant movie to come out.

Movieraider321 on Mar 14, 2009


#5 Seriously?? That's awesome, I sort of know the history of pirate radio, but didn't realize it evoked memories like that. Does anybody know if there's been a movie made about this before this one?
