Released in December 2007 in UK where it was a huge success (grossing more than £12 million), “St Trinian’s”, a schoolgirl comedy set in an anarchic highschool for bad girls, will finally hit the big screen in the USA in selected theathers on August 28th, 2009.

Between March 2008 and July 2009, the movie was also released in Australia, New Zealand, Belgium, Hungary, Germany, Poland, Austria, Spain, Portugal, Israel, Russia, Finland and Italy.

Based the famous drawings of Ronald Searle, one of the most famous British cartoonists, “St Trinian’s” was actually the sixth movie inspired by the artist’s work after “The Belles of St Trinian's” (1954), “Blue Murder at St. Trinian's” (1957), “The Great St. Trinian's Train Robbery” (1966), “The Pure Hell of St. Trinian's” (1960) and “The Wildcats of St. Trinian's” (1980 – which was a flop)

Since July 6th, 2009, directors / producers Oliver Parker and Barnaby Thompson, have started the 8-weeks shooting of “St Trinians II: The Legend of Fritton’s”, with most of the cast of the previous movie like Talulah Riley, Rupert Everett, Jodie Whittaker, Juno Temple, Gemma Arterton, Russell Brand or Colin Firth. There will be some new face as well including David Tennant (“Doctor Who”) who’ll play the lead villain.

Official synopsis : “St Trinian’s II: The Legend Of Fritton’s Gold” sees the schoolgirls start a new term amidst the usual chaos and excitement. Rupert Everett returns as unconventional headmistress Camilla Fritton and Colin Firth as her old flame Geoffrey Thwaites. A rollercoaster-style treasure hunt for the legendary Fritton’s Gold ensues as they face their most fearsome establishment rivals yet, but the feisty and ever-resourceful girls of St Trinian’s are undeterred in their mission to outwit the villainous Pomfrey (David Tennant) and his sidekicks from the women-hating secret society known as AD1.

There’s also a “St Trinian’s 2” competition organised by Ealing Studios, on the official FaceBook page of the film. The 10 winners will have the opportunity to visit the set and become an extra. Closing Date is tonight, August 1st 2009 (00:00am) and the winners must be free on August 16th, 2009 (check out the rules HERE).
