That was so cute! I want to see it. I was just smiling the whole time, and especially when was talking! Gah! You english gals have no idea what hearing his accent does to a little american girl. I am sure some of my fellow americans understand. Thanks EL for getting those caps on here and Leggyslove for posting about the trailer.

SERIOUSLY contemplating a trip to the UK to see this film after being smitten with the trailer :) He's so young, fresh faced, adorable, and FUNNY! I really hope we get to see more of Orlando's comedic side in the future. I have a feeling there's a real talent for comedy lurking, like his co-stars Johnny Depp and Brad Pitt have but don't use often enough, at least IMO I am hoping/praying this gets a US release, but my instincts tell me not to hold my breath

Now, for an ignorant question I hope nobody is offended by. I ask to be educated though:

is there a reason Orlando sounds SO British in this film? I'm not even sure that's the correct way to express it...not only does he sound REALLY British...I could swear his accents sounds DIFFERENT then it normally does. But I could be mad as well, so who knows? Maybe our UK members can enlighten me :)

Sonia ,
from memory of the clips I've seen I think that his character is a South London lad so that may explain why the accent sounds different. Less refined and not so posh. We're a bit common south of the river.

My guess is because he's got not just a Brit accent for this, but a cockney accent, which is a bit less proper then his usual. It's the way people talk in London. My guess is when he's with the people he's most comfortable with he really does talk this way and just has a 'stage voice' for the press so we can understand him. Some of the stuff in the CK trailer I couldn't understand at first just because it was so cockney.

I like his cockney accent A LOT, there's just something about it. It's so Brit! This movie looks like it could be really, really cute. If it doesn't get released in the USA I hope we at least get a straight to DVD release!

By the way, a little addition...maybe some people will agree with me on this one. The part of the trailer where I thought he sounded the most different was when he said "But Calcium is spelled with a 'C,' not a 'K,' Mr..." To me in that particular part, he sounded like a completely different person.

This was so funny. He does look fresh and young and the parts where he smiles! My goodness talk about lighting up the screen. He's a bright as a nuclear explosion.

The accent is a London/cockney accent, as Catz says.. of the common people and not so posh.

I doubt though, that Orlando does talk more like this when hes with his mates. He comes from a probably posh area of Canterbury, Kent where the accent is different again to London. Regional accents in Britain are very diverse and often you can tell the subtle changes in the space of just a few miles. Also Orlando was educated at a private school, where mostyly everyone would be Posh. I think his posher voice with its perfect very english accent is his own, and it is just utterly fantastic as Red says.
Even us british firls swoon when he open his mouth Red.

That's correct, he's put on a cockney accent for this film which is very convincingly good. But I'm from up North so I'm no expert Kent is that bit more well spoken then the cockneys of London. Not all Londoners talk like that. Just certain area's, to confuse you even more

But anyway onto the trailor. I couldn't help but laugh and cringe at his so cute but very goofy charachter. It's so weirdly good to see him play a more comedic role compared to his more, for want of a better word, "straight laced" characters. I thank the lord I'm a Brit gal and I'm going to get to see this soon. I've lost count the amount of times they've promised us it and then it got cancelled
I cried laughing at this:

Brilliant comedy timing.

That looks good...and I understood almost every word of it!

And people say he can't act...

I hope to see this, whether on the big screen or one video, I don't care....

Oh My Goodness!!!

This film is going to be brilliant!! I cannot wait, Orlando looks so cute and really funny. Doing sit ups in his bed with the kiddies duvet cover on, slugging back the milk, that champion smile as he gets smacked in the face CANNOT WAIT!!!!!!

As for his accent, I would hazard a guess that this is far more what Orlando's normal voice is. Think about the Radio One interview, he sounded just like that to me, and not the affected posh accent he puts on in POTC or LOTR or Troy. I think this is going to be more of the real Orlando than we have ever seen, and he looks adorable!!!!

I can't wait for this!!!! This is going to be great! I think it's going to have has rolling in the aisles! Not only does he come across as funny, but adorable to boot!

Can't wait! Can't wait! Can't wait!

Oh something that just occured to me. Orlando doesn't drink or eat dairy products right? I remember him saying something about his favourite drink being a Soya Latte or some such, 'cause he doesn't drink dairy. If that be the case...would it be soya milk he is drinking you think?

Echoes Bon... Awwwwwww!

I've got to admit that I'm now keen on seeing this film. Stop it, Serein...I know what you're going to say!

Orlando looks like he has a fine sense of comic timing and his expressions certainly are funny. I love all the fast talking hustling everyone seems to be doing around "Jimmy". Poor guy, hasn't a clue what his "manager" has gotten him into. And that trainer? Too funny!

Who knows It could be a rumour like the vegetarian thing, or it could be soy milk. I mean, doesn't really matter does it.

For some reason I wasn't able to download the trailer last night, but I just now did, and *my stars*! How adorable! That accent! Definitely not his usual! He looks so wide-eyed and naive, I love it. The movie looks really funny. I agree, who in the world said he can't act?
I wonder if it will make it to the U.S. on DVD???

Thank you, Leggyslove and EL for putting those up for us!

Saw this on the OB files...sent in by Angela.

Produced by Natascha Wharton
CASTING

Quote:
A few people asked the question ‘did you cast Orlando because he was Orlando Bloom?’” says Wharton. “In fact when we first met him, there was a buzz post Lord Of The Rings, but I wasn’t sure he was a name as such.” She continues, “Truthfully, the minute we met him he just smiled, and it sounds stupid and a bit corny, but I just thought, he is The Calcium Kid!” She goes on, “Orlando just had this sweet innocence about him. It was always going to be a hard thing to balance, someone who was a boxer but had this real sweetness in the character, and I think Orlando embodies Jimmy, I’m just delighted by him.”
Ahh bless.

Catz xx

He certainly is, EL! I just want to bottle him up and keep him forever! :jimmy: (SQUEEEEE <points at Jimmy smilie) is just precious and from the Trailer it looks like Orlando will once again claim the character all for himself

Thank you so much for the smilie!

I loved this part of the quote. So sweet and I couldn't help but smile when i thought about that beautiful smile he'd have done to win them over.
