So we went to the red carpet for the premiere of the new film (now in theatres) but we also had a one on one sit down with The Trailer Park Boys creator Mike Clattenburg, and the hardest rapper from the East Coast, J-Roc.
When you think of a red carpet The Trailer Park Boys don’t exactly come to mind, but that’s where we met them. The boys from Sunnyvale are back for the second major movie release and Jordan caught up with them at the Toronto debut. Also stay tuned for an in depth interview with J-Roc and Mike Clattenburg coming soon!
American movie audiences will soon be able to catch the shenanigans of Ricky, Julian and Bubbles, after “Trailer Park Boys: The Movie” finally found a U.S. distributor.
Screen Media will give the film a limited release in the U.S. beginning Jan. 25, with wider release scheduled for Feb. 1.
The film, which opened in October 2006 in Canada, is based on the cult-hit Canadian TV series revolving around the misadventures of the residents of a Nova Scotia trailer park.
The series is not currently airing in the U.S., but the film had its U.S. premiere at the South by Southwest film festival last March.
The Mike Clatternburg-directed movie follows Julian (John Paul Tremblay), Ricky (Robb Wells) and Bubbles (Mike Smith) as they attempt The Big Dirty, a dimwitted plan to steal a vast quantity of untraceable coins.
Those loveable potty mouthed, pot smoking, booze drinking trailer park boys are moving from the small screen to the big screen this Friday, as the popular syndicated show premieres their new venture, “Trailer Park Boys: The Movie.”
After six years of entertaining cable viewers in Canada (and some even in the United States) Ricky, Julian and Bubbles have decided to stretch reach into theatres
The film will follow the boys as they plan a heist that involves swiping coins everywhere from parking meters to movie theatres.
CTV.ca reports that the film, made with a modest budget of $5 million, will have the same cheap-looking documentary-style as at the TV version.
The show’s seventh season is slated to premiere on Showcase next spring.
