Must Watch: New Trailer for The Boat That Rocked!
We've been following Richard Curtis' The Boat That Rocked for quite some time now, even though Universal still hasn't set a US release date. We even debuted an early trailer for it back in December, but I wasn't too excited by what I saw. Today MSN debuted the newest trailer and it's a vast improvement over that first one. So much so that this has been reinstated on my short list of films that I'm anxious to see even though they don't have a US release date. This really does look fantastic, probably even more so because I finally watched Curtis' Love Actually for the first time a few months ago. Get this over here now!

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, including Notting Hill and Bridget Jones. The film stars an incredible array of actors, including Bill Nighy, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Kenneth Branagh, Nick Frost, Rhys Ifans, Gemma Arterton, and January Jones. It's being distributed by Universal Pictures 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. Stay tuned for more in 2009!

I kind of like it. It has a cool vibe to it, especially Hoffman and Nighy who seem to really give the film a spice of character, I'll be there, most defiently!

This cast is too good. The big screen is unworthy. So psyched for this.

Philip Seymour Hofman looks like a fat fuck version of Bill Murray.

Wow. That last scene reminded me of a wet dream I had. Universal, release this sweetness, which reminds me of "MASH", "Private Parts" and "Good Morning Vietnam".

Ooo. Edgy. A bunch of free thinkers standing up to the establishment. I bet there's a scene where an old couple gasps at a ribald display from a young revolutionary. Why hasn't anybody ever made a movie like this before?

AGH!!! This looks amazing. As a big fan of non conformity, the plot has me all excited. I first heard about this last night from the footage on the Oscars credits. I saw Phillip Seymour Hoffman and was intrigued. Then I saw Bill Nighy and it was a wrap for me!! I HAD to find a trailer for this movie! Lo and behold, here it was, and I'm loving it!

Looks like a boring piece of shit about some burn-outs who just want to play their rock and roll. The "man" won't let them play it so they broadcast from a "boat that rocks". Wow! Another hokey commentary on free speech with a bunch of cute jokes and shit music from a shit time. Let me guess, Philip Seymour Hoffman will play the zany DJ who is the true symbol of the movie's message. Crap.
