    Post thunder down under

    From Entertainment News, Celebrity Gossip, Celebrity News | E! Online

    In the text below, what do the words in bold mean?


    Richard Schroder is drumming up some thunder down under. The actor has signed on to direct the Sci Fi Channel movie Hellhounds, about a Greek warrior who teams with his loinclothed posse to rescue his bride from Hades, circa 500 B.C. The film, starring Men in Trees' Scott Elrod as the put-upon groom, is set to start shooting Sunday in Romania, per the Hollywood Reporter.

    "drumming up" - creating, building up
    "thunder Down Under" - excitement in Australia
    "loinclothed posse" - group of friends or associates who wear loincloths
    "put-upon" - exploited, victimized

    "drumming up" - creating, building up
    "thunder down under" - excitement in the, er, loin region. Actually, they're describing the excitement that the movie will hopefully cause because of the male actors wearing nothing but loincloths.
