Tropic Thunder is Going to Rock


With Tropic Thunder arriving in cinemas August 21st, there’s no better time to catch up with the hilarious trailers/featurettes/viral videos that have been released over the last few months.

For the unaware, Tropic Thunder is an epic war-comedy directed by Ben Stiller, who stars alongside Jack Black, Robert Downey Jr, Nick Nolte and Steve Coogan. The movie follows a group of arrogant actors filming a war flick in the middle of the jungle. However, they unwittingly get caught up in a real-life battle, and must find a way to survive.

The film garnered some publicity earlier this year, when it was revealed that Downey Jr would be playing a black man. Correction. He would be playing a white man PLAYING a black man. It’s a pretty touchy issue, and there was even some debate on our own blog when the news was originally reported. Remember – the film is a satire. Trust us, once you see the footage, the joke becomes pretty clear.

So first up – have a look at the international trailer. By the way, this film will be great for what happens at 1:41 minutes alone.

Next we have the genius trailer for the (non-existant) making-of, ‘Rain of Madness’. Warning: There is some coarse language.

Finally, we have a skit that Stiller, Black and Downey Jnr did for the MTV Awards earlier this year. Warning: It features some violence, a little blood, and a lot of crotch-punches.

Less than a month to go now! We’ll be sure to keep you updated as we get closer to the release.
