When I saw Charlie and the Chocolate Factory recently the trailers went down a storm: King Kong looked excellent, Harry Potter was worth a squizz, but the audience really came alive for Wallace and Grommet’s ‘Curse of the Were-Rabbit’. The trailer had more laughs than the whole of Charlie.
There’s an ‘exclusive’ clip over at the BBC site – worth a look. Watch out for the policeman’s line: maybe it says something about me but I was laughing like a drain (whatever that means)
Very British, very dark, and very cheesy (as in ‘Wensleydale: Crackin’ Cheese, Grommit!’). Can’t wait to see this.
(Interesting fact: I used to live next to Wensleydale – a beautiful part of the world and one of the finest, crumbliest cheeses you could ever hope for. Lovely on fresh crusty bread with a bit of pickle… Now there’s an idea…)
