Premiere news :D

Southern premiere confirmed

Dust off the red carpet, dig out the gladrags and groom those mullets. The premiere of Two Little Boys is coming to Invercargill.

After months of speculation, the team behind the Sarkies brothers' latest film has made it official: the New Zealand premiere of Two Little Boys will be held at the Civic Theatre on September 11.

Director Robert Sarkies said he was excited to bring the film "home to Invers".

"We owe the city a huge debt of gratitude for their support that we hope to repay with a big party of a premiere that unveils both the film and the region.

"With Bret, Hamish and Mayor Tim on the red carpet together it's going to be a blast.”

The film, which stars Flight of the Conchords' Bret McKenzie and Australian Hamish Blake from comedy duo Hamish and Andy, was filmed around Southland last year.

Based on the book by Duncan Sarkies, the film focuses on best mates Nige and Deano, their mate Gav, and the trio's adventures after Nige runs over a Scandinavian football star "in an unfortunate incident involving a hot meat pie, a ginger cat and a policeman".

The film was originally due to be released in March but was delayed when McKenzie was nominated for, and won, the best song Oscar for Man or Muppet from The Muppets movie.

Two Little Boys co-producer Vicky Pope said she was thrilled to be premiering the film in its hometown.

"[It] was made possible because of Invercargill's vote of confidence in our team . . .

"We had a wonderful partnership with our local investors and felt incredibly supported throughout the production by them and many locals and businesses from the area.

"It's great to be taking the film back to the community of people who helped get it made.”

A limited number of tickets for the premiere will go on sale from Ticket Direct and from the Invercargill City Council on August 22. The tickets include entry to a special function at the Civic Theatre before the screening and a stroll along the red carpet.

There will also be a limited number of tickets available to students of the Southern Institute of Technology (SIT), as the institution was crucial in supporting the film being made in Invercargill. These will be sold through SIT to students directly at a discounted price from August 22.

I went to the movies to see something or other last night (I've forgotten already - it was obviously really memorable!) and saw the TLB trailer in the cinema for the first time! It seemed to get a reasonable response - especially the 'counting the beat' scene (that song is a kiwi classic - everyone knows it) and the bit where they're wrestling on the beach got a few giggles.

It's getting close - can't wait! :D

Tickets for the New Zealand premiere of Two Little Boys go on sale today.

However, you will need to get in quick if you want to walk the red carpet with the stars.

A limited number of tickets for the red carpet, pre-film function and screening of the Sarkies brothers' latest collaboration at the Civic Theatre will be available from the Invercargill City Council booking office and TicketDirect.

The film, directed by Robert Sarkies and based on Duncan Sarkies' book of the same name, was shot throughout Southland and the Catlins early last year.

Premiere organiser Anna Dean, who was the unit publicist during filming, said it was great to be back in Invercargill for the September 11 event.

"I was here during the shoot and it is fantastic to be coming down to organise the celebration," she said.

The premiere will be attended by the film's stars, Bret McKenzie of Flight of the Conchords and Hamish Blake, half of Australian comedy duo Hamish and Andy.

Steven Woller, who worked on the film as an SIT intern and was director of photography of the webisodes, was looking forward to seeing the finished product.

Woller, who completed a Bachelor of Digital Media in film through SIT, was also an extra in the film.

He said he can't wait to see if his appearance made it to the final version.

There would still be a good show for those who do not get tickets - the red carpet part of the event kicking off at 5pm.

The Wellington International Ukulele Orchestra, of which McKenzie is a founding member and still plays with from time to time, will also perform.

How awesome would it be to watch TWO LITTLE BOYS before all of your bogan mates, and then sit down to a cup of tea (not really) and a chat (yes really) with Hamish and Bret afterwards? Pretty darn awesome. Like a toasted sandwich awesome. Join us at Reading Cinemas The Palms for a sneak peek at TWO LITTLE BOYS and an exclusive Q & A session with Hamish Blake from Australian duo Hamish & Andy and Bret McKenzie from New Zealand’s acclaimed Flight of the Conchords.

The film follows Nige (McKenzie) and his best mate Deano’s (Blake) riotous misadventures as they struggle with their imploding long-term friendship which has been put under pressure by an unfortunate accident involving a hot meat pie, the quiet town of Invercargill and the untimely death of a Scandinavian soccer star. Nige chucks the dead body in a nearby road works hole and runs to Deano for help. Trouble is, Deano's not really the guy you should turn to in a crisis.

Also, Bret & Hamish will be on the George FM Breakfast show on September 13th. :)
