If you, like me, are a big fan of Love Actually, then I have some great Friday news. No, there won't be a sequel, but the same people who showed us Love in the UK are back again with The Boat That Rocked.

The Boat That Rocked Trailer and Posters


Inspired by the British pirate radio revolution in the '60s, the majority of the film's shoot will take place in a large rusty metal fishing trawler moored off the coast of England in the very waters that kept the rock of the '60s booming into the U.K.

In 1966 -- arguably British pop music's finest era -- the BBC played only two hours of rock and roll every week. But pirate radio blasted rock and pop from the high seas 24 hours a day. And 25 million people -- more than half the population of Britain -- listened to these pirates every single day.

The Boat That Rocked is an ensemble comedy in which the romance takes place between the young people of the '60s and pop music. It's about a band of rogue DJs that captivated Britain, playing the music that defined a generation and standing up to a government that, incomprehensibly, preferred jazz.


Below you will find the trailer (via TrailerAddict) and posters for The Boat That Rocked. This same trailer was attached to the Mamma Mia! DVD. While some English humor is too dry for my tastes, The Boat definitely looks to be following the Love Actually formula, which had me in stitches.
