Showcase Cinemas have announced that Jack Spring's road trip comedy DESTINATION: DEWSBURY will be released from 1st March 2019.
DESTINATION: DEWSBURY is a daring piece of filmmaking – made on a small budget, with an average crew age of 21 – with irreverent, shockwave comedy that aims to fill the void in the UK comedy mainstream. With a touch of staple English sitcoms, iconic film comedies and a wild imagination, the film is a blend of exciting talent and tone. Director and co-writer Jack Spring sees the film as a “middle-aged version of The inbetweeners. It's got real heart and strikes a comedic and emotional chord with a huge spectrum of people; it’s a proper laugh-out-loud comedy that touches the heart”.
In the modern age of superhero blockbusters, reboots/remakes and endless sequels, DESTINATION: DEWSBURY is a fresh, bold comedy that harks back to the timelessness of a good laugh at the cinema! With a relatable ensemble and a wild adventure that they embark on, you’ll be hard-pressed to forget the journey – which is packed full of laughs but also tugs at the heartstrings at points.
The film will have two sensational premieres to mark its theatrical road trip – the first on Saturday 23rd February in its hometown of Dewsbury (Showcase Cinema Batley), and its UK capital touchdown on the 24th February in London (Prince Charles Cinema). Attending the events will be the film’s main cast, director Jack Spring, and special guests.
A “classic British road trip movie” with “cringe-a-minute laughs”, the film will be out in select cinemas across the UK on March 1st 2019. Interview opportunities with the director and cast and review opportunities are readily available. Additional multimedia materials are also available on request.
