Apple’s iTunes service in the US is offering a free half-hour mock-umentary covering the making of the film, Tropic Thunder.
Rain of Madness follows the adventures of filmmaker Jan Jürgen (co-writer Justin Theroux) as he chronicles the making of the movie.
Star/director/co-writer/probable caterer Ben Stiller explained in a recent press release: “We wanted to do a fake documentary about the making of the movie within the movie which is called “Tropic Thunder” – not the actual movie “Tropic Thunder”. The fake documentary focuses on the real movie’s fake director, and what happens to the fake cast before they go into the real jungle. It’s pretty straightforward.”
Available now to Distorted Loop’s US readers, free through iTunes.
