Boat/Rocked posters

7 years agoby:
100%

The cool peeps over at "Empire Online" recently landed themselves some nifty new posters for the period biopic THE BOAT THAT ROCKED. The story chronicles how a pirate radio station in the North Sea in the 1960s rose up against the man (in this case, the FCC), and blasted their pirated rock for all to hear. The downright great cast includes Phillip Seymour Hoffman as American DJ "The Count", Nick Frost as The Count's co-DJ Dave, Rhys Ifans as another British DJ, Bill Nighy as the radio station's boss, January Jones as Gavin's love interest and Kenneth Branagh as the British Minister representing "the man". Jack Davenport, Emma Thompson and Gemma Arterton round out the cast. Click through for the posters big-sized. The boat starts rocking May 1st of next year in the UK but no stateside release is set as yet.

Hmm...

The cast sounds pretty awesome, but I think some needed context was left out because those character descriptions don't ntirely make sense (who the frick is Gavin?).

Whether you like Hoffman or not you've got to admit he's one talented dude.

I can't look at, or listen to, Phillip Seymore Hoffman (except in TWISTER, where he was hysterical), but a good (rest of the) cast and a great director (and not to mention a good plot) has me hook, line, and sinker.

Already in line!

Love these posters. Love the cast. Generally like Richard Curtis for that matter. Hoffman and Nighy seal the deal though.
