The UK release of Hollywood spoof Tropic Thunder is just a month away.
If you aren’t familar with the film, the premise involves a group of highly paid actors (played by Ben Stiller, Robert Downey Jnr and Jack Black) shooting a Vietnam movie (like Apocaplypse Now), only to find that they really are in a genuine war zone.
Here is the faux trailer for the mockumentary Rain of Madness, which is a film-within-a-film parody done in the style of Hearts of Darkness: A Filmmaker’s Apocalypse.
It will be available as a US only iTunes download on the 26th August, but here are some clips via YouTube:
