I have been trying to track down as much information about this film as I can since it's Dutch release. It appears that this film will indeed get a theatrical release in the US after all! I have not seen an official press release on this, but after doing a bit of searching, I did run across this post on Twitchfilm.com form back in June 2015 that I missed then.
Part of that information was also listed on the films official...
It is time to take a look back at some of the best Nautical trailers for both film and TV, and this year I have also included several Independent films as well. I have hyper-linked the names on the films, and they should open links to their IMD page, if there is one. I have quoted the original descriptions of the films in this article, as they describe it far better than I ever could. I have also included a link to the films web page, if I could find one.
This is a story of escaping modern civilization and living life as a Sea Gypsy, itinerant explorers and wanderers of the wild oceans. One year of exploring some of the last great wild lands, the remote islands of the South Pacific, the icy fingers of Antarctica and the isolated fjords of Patagonia. Our mode of transport and home is Infinity, a 120ft sailing Ketch made of reinforced ferro cement, tough stuff. Think of a bunker, that due to the miracle of water...
I was doing my usual daily searches today when I ran across an interesting sailing video, of which of course, I have seen plenty. Few however have grabbed my attention like this one! It is a rough cut of a trailer for an upcoming documentary called Sea Gypsies.
Well, that of course got me wondering who are these people, and why are they willingly sailing through hurricane force winds in a motorized sail boat in Antarctica?? The answer I found, certainly wasn't the one I was expecting! I dug deeper and found an earlier trailer on Vimeo.
Ok, more cool sailing in Antarctica, a little bit more of an explanation, lack of official permits and penguins! I cant even begin to describe what these people do and do it any justice, so I won't even try. I will let them, and their videos speak for themselves. There was a bit more information in the description of the video :
I have been chomping at the bit to see this movie ever since I found out about it. The original title for this film was Battle of Myeongnyang, which they should have kept in my opinion, but the film still works quite well under it's western title. The prospect of seeing Korean Turtle ships in action on the big screen had me very excited. I really do not know that much about Korean history, but I remember fighting Turtle ships while I was playing Age of Empires II. I always played as Vikings (I know all of you are absolutely shocked by this) and nothing could stand against my fleet of fully upgraded Viking longboats with fire arrows, except Turtle ships.
I pre-ordered the Blu-ray disk back in March and it finally arrived late last week, so I baked me a pizza Saturday night and put it in my Blue-ray player. The first thing that struck me was there was no previews,...
When the young republic of The Netherlands is attacked by England, France and Germany and the country itself is on the brink of civil war, only one man can lead the county's strongest weapon, the Dutch fleet: Michiel de Ruyter.
The past few weeks there really hasn't been much that I have been able to track down pirate-news wise. I have been able to track down a few things that may be of interest to some of you though. Earlier this year I did a news pos on the Korean movie The Pirates, it was also in the Best Trailers post. Amazon has pre-order for the Blu-Ray that will release on January 20'th. The Blu-ray will be in Korean, with English subtitles. There is no mention of other language subtitles. There is also a DVD version listed also which apparently costs more than the Blu-Ray! No information yet for a Blu-ray for The Admiral: Roaring Currents, but according to the ratings on IMDB, it is an excellent movie!
