Is it a film? Is it a piss-take? And if it is a piss-take how did they get Benicio Del Toro, Courtney Love and Gore Vidal to take part?
First the history bit.
Back, ooh, a long time ago, Gore Vidal – famous gay smarty pants – wrote a film based on the Roman Emperor Caligula. They called it Caligula. Unbeknownst to the film-makers, when the proper actors – Helen Mirren, Maclolm McDowell etc – went home at night, out came hard-core porn actors to make ‘extra scenes’. When the film finally came out, those ‘extra scenes’ had actually been edited in.
Cue total meltdown. Everyone took their name off it and it was (don’t tell anyone) really filthily great. Well, now comes this bizarre ‘trailer’, with real proper actors and everything, which seems to be a re-launch of the film with new bits.
Or is it? Who can say? Give us your ideas but, steady how you go, it’s quite rude. Watch it after the jump…
