Here’s THE FESTIVAL trailer which is the first comedy feature film release from production company Fudge Park, formed by THE INBETWEENERS writers and executive producers Iain Morris and Damon Beesley.
This year marks the tenth anniversary of the beloved British coming of age sitcom THE INBETWEENERS, which co-creators Morris and Beesley followed up with two hugely successful big-screen outings. THE INBETWEENERS MOVIE released in 2011 took £45 million at the box office to become the most successful British comedy of all time and sequel THE INBETWEENERS 2,set the record for the biggest opening weekend of 2014 and was the highest grossing British film that year.
Judging from The Festival trailer it appears that when Nick’s (Joe Thomas) girlfriend dumps him at graduation, he has a colossal meltdown in front of the entire university. He’s convinced his life is over, but his best mate Shane (Hammed Animashaun) has the perfect solution: three days at an epic music festival. With the help of “festival aficionado” and certified oddball Amy (Emmy Award nominee Claudia O’Doherty), Shane tries to get Nick to embrace the music, the mayhem and the mud.
Now we’d be the first to admit that our festival days fill us with horror although we attempted to relive The Festival trailer experience at cut price merely by taking a CD cover of a live album and placing it at the bottom of the garden and charging ourselves three quid for a warm can of coke whilst your girlfriend vomits down the front of you having eaten some of those special mushrooms that some soap dodging crusty sold her.
The Festival trailer looks far better and with genius The Inbetweeners writers behind it we’re sure this could be the British breakout hit of the Summer as there’s no Glastonbury this year.
The Festival will be released in cinemas on 17th August across the UK and Ireland and is directed by Iain Morris and written by Keith Akushie and Joe Parham (BBC Three’s SIBLINGS).
