The Inbetweeners returning to Australia for sequel premiere
Simon Bird, James Buckley, Blake Harrison & Joe Thomas will be back in Oz next month.
Those bad boys from The Inbetweeners are headed back to our shores for the premiere of the sequel film, The Inbetweeners 2, which was shot on the Gold Coast, Byron Bay, Sydney and the South Australian town of Maree.
Simon Bird (Will), James Buckley (Jay), Blake Harrison (Neil) and Joe Thomas (Simon) will be joined by co-director Iain Morris at special fan events on the Gold Coast, Sydney, Melbourne and Auckland.
Creators, Iain Morris and Damon Beesley said: “We could not be more excited about coming back to Australia. The last time we were there England were being embarrassed in The Ashes, but even that couldn’t spoil the fun we had. We had an incredible time shooting there and were lucky enough to see dawn in Byron Bay, a full moon over Sydney Harbour and the splendour of the Maree Hotel at 4am amongst other things.
“We’re also heading to New Zealand, which has a special place in our hearts because of the great friends we have there, and because Flight of the Conchords allowed us to write our other piece about Australia – the episode Unnatural Love.”
If the new film does anywhere near as well as the first Inbetweeners Movie they should be very bloody happy. It became United Kingdom’s most successful comedy of all time, with four weeks at the top of the box office, also grossing over $9.2m in Australia.
