'The Inbetweeners' Gets U.S. Poster and Release Date

Simon Bird, James Buckley, Blake Harrison, and Joe Thomas star in this smash hit comedy based on the popular UK TV series.

Chris Ball, President and CEO of LA-based film production and distribution company Wrekin Hill Entertainment, announced today that the company will open the overseas phenomenon The Inbetweeners in the U.S. on September 7, 2012. Created, written and executive produced by Iain Morris and Damon Beesley, produced by Chris Young, and directed by Ben Palmer, the movie is based on the hugely popular and multi award-winning British TV series of the same name, and also stars original cast members Simon Bird, James Buckley, Blake Harrison, and Joe Thomas.

The Inbetweeners Poster

The British answer to American Pie, The Inbetweeners is a racy comedy about four uncool friends (Will, Jay, Simon and Neil) who go on their first vacation to Greece in search of high times and wild sex - with no parents, no teachers, no money, and little to no chance with the ladies.

The Inbetweeners was the UK box office smash of 2011, spending four weeks as the UK's #1 film. The film broke several records, including the biggest opening week ever for a live action comedy at the UK box office. It went on to see its final British box office total over $70 million, and nearly $100 million worldwide.

"I love this film, and it's no surprise to me that this film stood at the very top of the UK box office alongside The King's Speech, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2 and Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy when it hit theaters there," says Chris Ball. "We think American audiences will be equally charmed and 'offended' by this film."

Creators Iain Morris and Damon Beesley added: "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 it spent as long at the top of the box office as the final Harry Potter film, and we will be delighted if Americans take these four other British teenagers to their hearts in the same way."

eOne will release The Inbetweeners: THE COMPLETE SERIES, a complete DVD set of the original British TV series on July 17, 2012.

The Inbetweeners was released September 7th, 2012 and stars Simon Bird, James Buckley, Blake Harrison, Joe Thomas, Emily Head, Lydia Rose Bewley, Laura Haddock, Tamla Kari. The film is directed by Ben Palmer.

    Unfortunately, I think only people that watch the tv show will really get the movie. And the Inbetweeners Movie is what The Hangover should have been.

    If you really want to see this film, buy it on dvd and save money, you can pick it up for around about 6 pounds (about $12) from any supermarket.
