Chris Morris jihad film good to go

Four Lions trailer live

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Chris Morris, the genius-man behind The Day Today, Brass Eye and Blue Jam, has spent the last few years researching and making a film about some hapless British would-be terrorists.

The film is called Four Lions and premieres at the Sundance Festival tomorrow. The trailer is available on YouTube,

or here.

IMBd describes the film as an "emotionally engaging (and entirely plausible) farce... it shows that - while terrorism is about ideology - it can also be about idiots."

The 100-minute film was directed by Morris and written by himself, Jesse Armstrong and Sam Bain. There's no UK release date available at present.

Vulture Towers' resident bomb disposal operative often bewails, and gives thanks for, the haplessness of the average British bomber.

Four Lions has yet to get a release date in the UK, or anywhere else.®
