Jack Whitehall’s BBC Three comedy, Bad Education, is soon heading to the big screen, and today (12th July), the comedian took to twitter to share the movie’s first official trailer.
The trailer sees Whitehall’s affable but dimwitted school teacher, Alfie Wickers taking his tearaway pupils out for one last class trip to Cornwall – despite the objections of several parents. Dubbing it “a holiday that’s so bats**t mental that if it [were]a movie, everyone would be played by Nicolas Cage,”Alfie and the kids raise havoc in the idyllic county, insulting the locals and upsetting the resident wildlife.
Harry Enfield, Mathew Horne and Sarah Solemani all appear in the trailer, reprising their roles from the sitcom, alongside the pupils played by Ethan Lawrence, Layton Williams, Nikki Runeckles, Kai Alexander, Weruche Opia, Jack Binstead and Charlie Wernham.
New additions to the cast include Talulah Riley, Jeremy Irvine, Joanna Scanlan, Clarke Peters and Game of Thrones‘ Iain Glen as a disgruntled and enigmatic Cornishman.
The Bad Education Movie – co-written by Whitehall and Freddy Syborn, and directed by Elliot Hegarty – is set to hit cinemas on 21st August.
