'The Emperor's New Clothes': The Trailer For Russell Brand And Michael Winterbottom's Film Is Here

The Trailer For Russell Brand's Film Has Arrived, And The Bankers Won't Be Happy

Typical. You wait ages for one thing called 'The Emperor's New Clothes', and then two come along at once.

Yes, not only has Cassetteboy released his latest brilliant rap, but the trailer for Russell Brand's film of the same name is out.

And it's hard to disagree with its opening line: "Inequality is getting greater. The rich are getting richer, everyone else is struggling..."

Directed by Michael Winterbottom, 'The Emperor's New Clothes' is Brand's attack on those who maintain this inequality - and are, indeed, overseeing its growth. It's also a call to arms.

From driving a 'Shop A Banker' car around the City of London to turning up at Lord Rothemere's house, from taking part in rallies to helping the New Era Estate group, Brand is, as the trailer says, a man on a mission.

So if you like your comedy to be political - and to come with more than a dose of outrage - this film may just be the rallying cry you've been waiting for. Find out more about it - including details of special screenings on 21 April - on its official website.
