After a UK cinema release of The Inbetweeners Movie’ last year became one of the highest-grossing British comedy movies of all time; add to that a successful screening of the TV series on BBC America, means the hit comedy is now to get US cinema release in September.
Wrekin Hill Entertainment announced it will bring the newly-named The Inbetweeners, along with a new poster to cinemas across the US on September 7.
The film stars series regular cast members; Simon Bird, James Buckley, Blake Harrison, Joe Thomas, Emily Head, and Greg Davies, and introduces new characters played by; Lydia Rose Bewley, Laura Haddock, Jessica Knappett and Tamla Kari.
The poster tagline reads: ‘Out of school. Out of the country. Out of their league’.
Creators Iain Morris and Damon Beesley said of the announcement: “We’re delighted that our film is being released by Wrekin Hill in the US, and hope that in the year of the Jubilee and Olympics it can go some way towards restoring a balanced view of the British.
“In the UK, [The Inbetweeners Movie] spent as long at the top of the box office as the final Harry Potter film,” the pair continued, “And we will be delighted if Americans take these four other British teenagers to their hearts in the same way.”
Chris Ball, head of Wrekin Hill Entertainment, added: “We think American audiences will be equally charmed and ‘offended’ by this film.”
