Here’s the trailer for School’s Out Forever, that seems to mix the 90s movie Toy Soldiers with a global pandemic.

It was towards the end of 2018 that Rebellion – publishers and makers of comics, videogames, books and a whole lot more – announced the $100m acquisition of a site in Oxfordshire to become its new film studio. With projects such as a Rogue Trooper movie with Duncan Jones and its mooted Mega City One TV show based on the 2000AD Judge Dredd strip it owns, it now had the infrastructure itself to make those projects.

Ahead of those, its debut feature film – that it’s financed, produced and will also be distributing – is ready for release next month. Based on the book by Scott K Andrews (that it also published) School’s Out Forever has been written and directed by Oliver Milburn. It boasts a cast that includes Oscar Kennedy, Liam Lau Fernandez, Alex MacQueen, Samantha Bond, Jasmine Blackborow, Steve Oram and Anthony Head. And the first trailer for the film has been released. It looks like this…

The official synopsis, meanwhile, reads as follows…

No sooner has 15-year-old Lee Keegan been expelled from his private school than a pandemic spreads like wildfire around the globe. With his father dead and mother trapped abroad, Lee is given one instruction: go back to school. But safety and security at St. Mark’s School for Boys is in short supply. Its high walls can’t stop the local parish council from forming a militia and imposing marshal law, while inside the dorms the end of the world is having a dangerous effect on his best friend and his unrequited crush on the school nurse isn’t helping him concentrate on staying alive.

The film is released on digital download from February 15th, with a DVD and Blu-ray following on April 12th. We’ll have more on this in due course…
