Comedy duo Simon Pegg and Nick Frost – responsible for the likes of Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz and The World’s End – come together again in a madcap reimagining of high school life which sees a prestigious boarding school rocked to its foundations after a mysterious sinkhole coughs up something out of this world.
Peaky Blinders’ Finn Cole stars as newly enrolled student Don Wallace and is joined by Asa Butterfield’s Willoughby and Hermione Corfield. Simon Pegg joins the school faculty as head of sixth-form Meredith Houseman under Michael Sheen’s creepy headmaster while Nick Frost becomes the leader of a band of drugged-up eco warriors who are protesting the giant fracking operation taking place on the school’s grounds.
When Don Wallace is enrolled by his pushy mother into a prestigious boarding school, he finds himself a clear outsider to his new peers and struggles to adapt. But when a fracking operation in the school’s woodland area unearths something not quite of this world, Don learns that fitting in with the rest of school is the least of his worries as he finds himself fighting for survival with a ragtag band of students and teachers alike.
