“Jackboots on Whitehall” trailer

Imagine a cross between Team America and A Town Called Panic set during World War II. Ewan McGregor, Timothy Spall, Tom Wilkinson and Alan Cumming provide voices for directors Edward McHenry & Rory McHenry’s Barbie-doll epic, Jackboots on Whitehall. Sony Home Entertainment has picked up the film, but a U.S. theatrical release is uncertain, though the film will play several festivals in the next few months (The San Francisco International Animation Festival will screen it on November 11th). Jackboots on Whitehall will open October 8th in London.

    They had me going there with the slogans, the waving flag, and the dramatic music… And Churchill with a Tommy Gun, oh my!

    This looks (and sounds) very funny.

    I’m a sucker for almost any comedy with British accents – to my midwestern American ears, the accents make the jokes seem even funnier.

    That looks fantastic!

    TEAM AMERICA meets A TOWN CALLED PANIC..?

    I think it looks more like ROBOT CHICKEN meets 1941.

    (which is still *meant* as a compliment)

    This looks like fun drive-in double feature material. No actors were hurt in the filming…

    WHAT THE HELL DID I JUST WATCH? AND WHAT THE HELL IS THAT SMELL, FARVA????

    (Hilarious. I hope it comes to U.S. screens, or at least gets a DVD release.)

    I am so there! Will keep my eyes peeled on October 8th (I may be getting a release here in blighty – but I suspect not that many screens)

    I didnt see much animation in that clip… just a lot of live action toy-puppets. Reminds me of the days whwn people thought Mr. Bill was “claymation”.
