I forgot to include the following link in my previous post. There’s more Jack Davenport, better video quality and new clips. Plus Rhys Darby, prettyful Talulah Riley (Girl! Step back from the bleach!) and Richard Curtis again.

It’s only a ten seconds interview, and you have to suffer through the trailer for a guaranteed flop first, but at least it’s an interview, and it’s more fun to look at Jack Davenport than doing the laundry.
The report from the premiere of “The Boat That Rocked” in London also includes Nick Frost, Gemma Arterton, Tom Sturridge, Richard Curtis and others. And snippets from the movie, showing Norrington Mr. Twatt busy at work fighting the pestilence of piracy, poisoning British territorial waters and airwaves with
Jack says it’s nice doing “Comedy Bad Guy” (TM). Nick Frost complains about non-dancing GoGo girls. It’s raining. In other words: business as usual in London.
Don’t forget: “The Boat That Rocks” officially opens on 1 April – no kiddin’. Go, watch, enjoy yourself and be grateful Hugh Grant was busy elsewhere and let us know how you liked it. Mails containing the word “puerile” more than once or breaking Sparky’s Law (“A movie may not be condemned solely because it will be seen by more than 15 people and the director looks good in a suit.”) will be mocked.
Extra bonus special weekend-goody (with special thanks to Mary):
Don’t forget to check the
many new features and clips!
Good old Getty Images, what would we do without you? Here are the two pictures on which the watermarks do not make Jack look as if he had a really nasty skin condition. Yes, I’m glaring looking at you, AFP.

They both look smashing, and I absolutely love Michelle’s earrings.
You just got to love a couple where the colour of the husband’s tie matches the one of his wife’s tights!

That’s not good.
It’s not great, either.
It’s actually more like friggin’ fantastic!
The London Paper is running a promotion on Monday to win tickets to the world premiere of the Boat That Rocked that night (Monday 23rd March)!
Wait, wait – there’s a catch (there always is – competitions are like marriages):
YOU HAVE TO TURN UP IN 1960’s FANCY DRESS!
Now that’s typical – if there’s one thing I have plenty of, then it’s 1960’s style dresses. Alas, I’m not in London, so you’ve got one person less standing in your way. Or take pictures of you while you’re not looking and then posting them on the internet.
Just in case you’re in doubt what 1960’s clothes looked like:
If you want to go for “cool” rather than “colourful to the point of ouch”, I’d suggest the following look, though:
There’s also an official MySpace page for “The Boat That Rocked” – quizzes, trailers, behind-the-scenes videos, playlist, news, competitions and lots of other things.
Have a lot of fun, lucky winners of premiere tickets! And everybody else watching the movie as well!
Been to the premiere? Or seen the movie some other day? Let us know what you thought of it – no matter if you loved “The Boat That Rocked” or hated it. Leave a message, send a mail, release a pigeon. Messages in a bottle are also welcome.
The closer the premiere, the more viral the marketing! Go to The Official Website of The Boat That Rocked, then click on “Video Clips” and choose the one called “Counting Down” – Mr. Twatt (Jack Davenport) and Minister Dormandy (Kenneth Branagh) are celebrating a wee bit too early…
The London premiere of
“The Boat That Rocked”
will be on
Monday, 23 March, 2009
at the Odeon Leicester Square.
Please note: I don’t have the slightest idea if Jack Davenport will be there or not. Just in case you should think about camping in a tent outside the cinema…
Shootings for new Sci-Fi series “Flash Forward” started in February, and author Robert J. Sawyer posted a short review and some pictures on his blog. Please click the star below to read more – who knows, you might see a familiar face…
