St. Trinian's, Oliver Parker's remake of the 1950s classic movie is currently running in cinemas in Australia and New Zealand. Planned soon-to-follow territories are Portugal and some Eastern Europe countries.

The teenage flick is being sold by Ealing's new sales arm Ealing Studios International, and has been sold to a number of territories where it has yet to open, including Italy, Belgium (July 9, 2008), Germany (August 8, 2008), France and Scandinavia.

 

St. Trinian's is currently scheduled to come out on DVD (region two encoding) in the UK from April 14th, 2008.  Ealing Studio promises loads of extra features on this edition, but has not yet given details regarding this. Various online-stores (like amazon or WHSmith) are now taking pre-orders.

The modernised schoolgirl comedy, based on the cartoons by Ronald Searle which revived the popular film franchise, had a budget of $13m (£6.5m) and has become one of the recent surprise smash hits at the UK box office, taking $24.8m (£12.3m) in its home territory.

Ealing Studios is now planning a sequel to its hit film, trying to repeat the long-running success of the 1950s and 1960s series. Piers Ashworth and Nick Moorcroft, who worked on the 2007 project, are writing the sequel script now. The ensemble cast of last year's film featured Colin Firth, Rupert Everett, Stephen Fry, Lena Headey, Russell Brand, Gemma Arterton, Mischa Barton, Jodie Whittaker, and Lily Cole. There is no word yet who will reprise their roles in the planned sequel.
