First Trailer Arrives For ‘Slaughterhouse Rulez’ Starring Asa Butterfield, Michael Sheen, Nick Frost & Simon Pegg
‘Shaun of the Dead’ stars Nick Frost & Simon Pegg are back together on screen for the first time in a while, as the first trailer lands for ‘Slaughterhouse Rulez’.
Welcome to Slaughterhouse, an elite boarding school where boys and girls are groomed for power and greatness… and they’re about to meet their match. This ancient and ordered world is about to be shaken to its foundations – literally – when a controversial frack site on prized school woodland causes seismic tremors, a mysterious sinkhole, and an unspeakable horror to be unleashed. Soon a new pecking order will be established as the pupils and teachers alike become locked in a bloody battle for survival…
The film sees Asa Butterfield (‘Ender’s Game’), Finn Cole (‘Peaky Blinders’), and Hermione Corfield (‘The Halcyon’) star as the pupils, with Michael Sheen and Pegg taking on teacher roles. Frost plays a character called Woody.
The screenplay comes from Crispian Mills & Henry Fitzherbert, with Mills also directing. If you’re trying to place where you know the name Crispian Mills, for those of you around in the 90’s, he was the frontman for the indie band Kula Shaker before he got into making movies.
The movie is the first film produced by Stolen Picture, the production company founded by Pegg and Frost in 2016. Catalyst Global Media and Sony Pictures International also produce.
This marks the first time since 2013’s ‘The World’s End’ we’ve really seen the comedic duo of Pegg and Frost back together on screen. Following the completion of their “Three Flavours Cornetto” trilogy with Edgar Wright, the pair has mainly been working on separate projects. Pegg went off to join the ‘Star Trek’ and ‘Mission: Impossible’ franchises, whilst Frost starred in Sky series ‘Sick Note’ and AMC’s ‘Into the Badlands’.
‘Slaughterhouse Rulez’ comes to UK cinemas from Wednesday, 31st October 2018.
