Holy crap, this looks wonderful!

Taika Waititi’s Jojo Rabbit starring Scarlett Johansson, Sam Rockwell, Rebel Wilson, Waititi and newcomer Roman Griffin Davis looks like exactly the funny the world needs right now.

Waititi is Hitler in this! I don’t believe I need to say more…

Taika Waititi’s Jojo Rabbit, a high-wire act of satire starring Scarlett Johansson, Sam Rockwell, Rebel Wilson, newcomer Roman Griffin Davis and Taika Waititi himself as … Adolf Hitler.

Writer director Taika Waititi (THOR: RAGNAROK, HUNT FOR THE WILDERPEOPLE), brings his signature style of humor and pathos to his latest film, JOJO RABBIT, a World War II satire that follows a lonely German boy (Roman Griffin Davis as JoJo) whose world view is turned upside down when he discovers his single mother (Scarlett Johansson) is hiding a young Jewish girl (Thomasin McKenzie) in their attic.

Aided only by his idiotic imaginary friend, Adolf Hitler (Taika Waititi), Jojo must confront his blind nationalism. In Theaters October 18, 2019 Directed by: Taika Waititi Screenplay by: Taika Waititi, based upon the book “Caging Skies” by Christine Leunens

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
