Trailer Watch: Tropic Thunder, Rain of Madness, Hell Ride, Beautiful Losers

A pretty fuckin’ funny trailer for a mock documentary called Rain of Madness, about the making of the Tropic Thunder movie within a movie, clearing riffing on the Apocalypse Now doc Hearts of Darkness: A Filmmaker’s Apocalypse, has gone up at Apple. No definite word on whether they’re actually making this “making of” or where it would appear if they are, but I’m guessing they are, and that it’ll be on the DVD release. You can find a recent, international trailer for Tropic Thunder at the film’s UK website, too, with a teeny bit more footage than what we’ve seen in the previous domestic trailers.

ComingSoon has an exclusive red band trailer for the Quentin Tarantino-produced motorcycle gang schlockfest, Hell Ride. Written and directed by Larry Bishop, the film centers on “The Gent” (Michael Madsen), Pistolero (Bishop), and Comanche (Six Feet Under‘s Eric Balfour) as a trio of outlaws out for revenge against a gang called the 666ers. It looks like there’s plenty of gratuitous violence and nudity to satisfy any teenage boy, but whether the script is funny enough or the action is directed with enough style to satisfy anybody else is kind of up in the air. Vinnie Jones, Dennis Hopper, and David Carradine co-star. Hell Ride rides into theaters on August 8.

Aaaand, lastly, an engaging and… well, beautiful trailer for a documentary called Beautiful Losers is up at the film’s official site. It’s described as:

Beautiful Losers celebrates the spirit behind one of the most influential cultural movements of a generation. In the early 1990’s a loose-knit group of likeminded outsiders found common ground at a little NYC storefront gallery.… Starring a selection of artists who are considered leaders within this culture, Beautiful Losers focuses on the telling of personal stories…speaking to themes of what happens when the outside becomes “in” as it explores the creative ethos connecting these artists and today’s youth.

Beautiful Losers hits NYC on August 8, and LA on August 29.
