RockNRolla and Comic Con News!

RockNRolla from Warner Bros.

On site sources tell us Gerard was a popular draw to his fans and others during the RockNRolla Panel at Comic Con 2008.  Gerard and the rest of the panelists answered questions put to them from the audience as Gerard shared his chocolates with members of the crowd. Gerard and the panelists seemed genuinely pleased with their work in RockNRolla and didn't hesitate to say so.  A new RockNRolla trailer was screened at Comic Con 2008 on July 24th to a crowded room. This latest trailer may be viewed here. Visit Gerard Butler Dot Net for discussions and gallery pictures of Gerard and Rocknrolla at Comic Con.

Rocknrolla will debut at TIFF in September and is scheduled for limited release in Toronto, Los Angles and New York. Worldwide release is scheduled for October 31st. The schedules for Rocknrolla at TIFF are to be released in August.

 

poster.jpgThe soundtrack to Rocknrolla will be released in the UK in September before the movie opens. The soundtrack features Guy Ritchie's usual selective and assorted music from the British beat from years back to present. Ritchie is known for using music to enhance his movies that keep the audience awake, laughing and interested. You can get a feel for the soundtrack by listening to the music used in the trailer. From Lou Reed to the Sonics, Rocknrolla's soundtrack is pure Guy Ritchie crime caper music. The soundtrack will hit US shores at a later date on Universal Music group label. Rockrolla's soundtrack features The Clash, War, The Beat and Wanda Jackson to name a few.

Gerard Talks About Tales of the Black Freighter

Watchmen - Tales of the Black FreighterGerard's role in Tales of The Black Freighter was discussed by Zack   Snyder  (300, Watchman) at the Entertainment Weekly Visionaries Panel at Comic Con 2008.   Zack stated that the highly anticipated movie Tales of The Black Freighter will not be a big part of the movie Watchman as first thought, but Tales of The Black Freighter will show up in a future director's cut.  The animated Tales of The Black Freighter movie will be released on DVD around the time Watchman is released in theaters.

Tales of The Black Freighter is the story of a young man desperately trying to get home and warn his family and others that the ghostly pirate ship, The Black Freighter, is coming to shore. Gerard will be the voice of the Captain of the Black Freighter in this animated movie within Watchman.
