Hot from the cutting room, E1 Entertainment has released this new trailer for a seasonal Brit flick set to take the cinema world by storm this Christmas.
Martin Freeman is Mr. Maddens, a frustrated, under-achieving primary school teacher. His long time adversary Gordon Shakespeare (Jason Watkins) teaches at the posh independent school up the road.
Every year the two schools are embroiled in a bitter rivalry to achieve a 5-star review from the local paper for their nativity play. Maddens’ class always comes runner up - the story of his life.
Goaded by his rival’s arrogance, Maddens makes an idle boast to Shakespeare that this year, his school’s show-stopping musical has attracted the attention of his ex-girlfriend, Jennifer Lore (Ashley Jensen) – who happens to be a big time Hollywood producer.
They want to make a movie starring his kids… Hollywood is coming to Coventry!
Maddens suddenly finds himself a local celebrity, at the centre of quarrelling parents, dishonest teachers, and a mayhem of over-excited children and rampaging animals.
But as Coventry turns into Tinseltown, the big question remains: Will Jennifer bring Hollywood to town to make all their dreams come true?
Opening on December 4, we’re booking our tickets now. And the Producer, Nick Jones, is a mate, so we know it’ll be a corker.
