Trailer Thoughts: Tropic Thunder

Better late than never, this week I look at the latest film by the “Frat Pack” (i.e. Ben Stiller and friends).

Tropic Thunder

The latest directorial effort by Ben Stiller sees a group of actors filming a war movie that end up being involved in actual combat. This film looks to be a funny satire of the many war movies that have come out over the decades. The most interesting role definitely looks to be Robert Downey Jr, who is playing an Australian actor, who undergoes an operation to play black man in the film within a film. This film will definitely be worth checking out when it comes out in August.

Sean Kelly Author

Sean Patrick Kelly is a self-described über-geek, who has been an avid film lover for all his life. He graduated from York University in 2010 with an honours B.A. in Cinema and Media Studies and he likes to believe he knows what he’s talking about when he writes about film (despite occasionally going on pointless rants).
