Broadsheet Trailer Park: USS Indianapolis: Men of Courage



What you may need to know:

1. Nic Cage, atom bombs, submarines and sharks.

2. The USS Indianapolis was torpedoed by the Japanese in July 1945. Only 316 members of the 1,196-strong crew survived four days in shark-infested waters.

3. “Lifeless eyes, black eyes, like a doll’s eye.” Fans of Jaws (1975) will recall that the Indianapolis was the ship that Quint served on during WWII. And the cause of his shark aversion.

4. Look at that poster. So much fail.

5. Probably not coming to a cinema near you.

6. Broadsheet prognosis: A Shark Tale.

Release Date: May 27.

    Quint in Jaws described the events in a way that will never be bettered, especially not by a Nic Cage offering!

    Nic Cage storming the “Dudes who look like elderly lesbians” category there.

    Normally even the worst films are improved by having the Cage in them, but he doesn’t seem to be bringing the full crazy to this one.

    Is that the one where the other ship that won’t change course turns out to be a lighthouse?
