Richard Curtis' 'The Boat That Rocked' U.K. Trailer Uncovered

December 06, 2008 02:14:16 GMT


"In 1966, Britain was terrorized by a boat that rocked," a narrator begins his introduction on the U.K. trailer of "The Boat That Rocked". Highlighting on the phenomenon of British pirate radio revolution in the '60s, the trailer shares glimpses of the comedy movie, giving idea about what the movie is all about.

Telling the romance story between the young people of the '60s and pop music, "The Boat That Rocked" follows a band of rogue DJs that captivated Britain from a large rusty metal fishing trawler moored off the coast of England. Forefronting the UK pirate radio movement, they play the music that defines a generation, and stand up to a government that, incomprehensibly, preferred jazz.
