While the American TV remake flopped, and we haven’t heard anything about the U.S. movie version since it was announced last year, over in the U.K. “The Inbetweeners” is a bonafide phenomenon. The show is a big hit, and the movie, which dropped last year, was a massive success, storming the box office in the way that few homegrown efforts do. And of course, a sequel was quickly put into motion, and the first teaser trailer is here.
Simon Bird, James Buckley, Blake Harrison, and Joe Thomas are back to cause mayhem, with the story this time taking the boys to Australia. And that’s about as much “plot” as we know, but truthfully, that’s probably about as much plot as is necessary. And as you’ll see in this first look, the boys waste no time in pissing off the locals, but it probably won’t be long until they are in way over their heads. It’s probably safe to say this will be another winner in the U.K., but can this break through to the U.S.? We’ll see.
“Inbetweeners 2” opens abroad on August 6th. Watch below.
