When posting trailers for films, it can sometimes feel like it is just the same old movie and the same old trailer. Sometimes though a movie comes a long that has a trailer that catches your attention, and that is what the Patti Cake$’s trailer does. Looking like an 8 Mile like movie but with humour, this is definitely one that looks worth watching. The fact it is being screened at Film4 Summer Screen at Somerset House shows that it has caught the attention of more film people too.
So what did you think of the trailer? I like the dry humour, the fact the film has a heart and also that it is trying to be different than the same old movies we tend to see these days. Hopefully it gets as much attention as 8 Mile did, because it definitely has that feel around it.
