Richard Ayoade’s indie comedy hit SUBMARINE has had its American trailer premiered online thanks to Apple. The British comedy has been a hit since its world premiere at last year’s Toronto Film Festival then making its British premiere at Glasgow Film Festival and now American/Canadian movie fans can now check out the movie when its released June 3rd. The movie is still playing at some UK/Irish cinemas, i’ve not personally saw it myself however Dexter at The Peoples Movies has watched it and you can read his review here. The trailer is completely different cut from the British trailer, different music, editing, and times different footage with the trailer working on the movies charm rather than its humour and it will be interesting to see the PC Brigade of USA think of the use of’mentally retarded’ in the trailer.
Fifteen-year-old Oliver Tate has two big ambitions: to save his parents’ marriage via carefully plotted intervention and to lose his virginity before his next birthday. Worried that his mom is having an affair with New Age weirdo Graham, Oliver monitors his parents’ sex life by charting the dimmer switch in their bedroom. He also forges suggestive love letters from his mom to dad. Meanwhile, Oliver attempts to woo his classmate, Jordana, a self-professed pyromaniac who supervises his journal writing – especially the bits about her. When necessary, she orders him to cross things out. Based on Joe Dunthorne’s acclaimed novel, Submarine is a captivating coming-of-age story with an offbeat edge.
