The film sees Oyeniran return to the world of the urban British teen comedy, and now a new trailer has debuted online to showcase what we’ve got coming our way a few months down the line.
Shaun’s a lucky boy – growing up he’s had the right education, parents that loved him and he’s never been short of cash. But as he gets older, he finds he doesn’t fit into this world, especially with the self-righteous and entitled kids at his posh private school.
Deliberately deceiving his family, he enrols at his cousin’s college where he discovers an untouched new world of girls, parties and excitement.
Desperate to make a name for himself, he tries to impress the top girl, Chrissy, by holding a party for her at his mansion. But all he manages to do is trash the place and even destroy his Dad’s prized Lotus. He’s left with two weeks to find £20,000 to put things right before his parents get back from holiday and his dad goes tribal!
Shaun devises a plan to make some quick money, but he’s going to have to risk all he knows and tell a whole lot of lies to the people he loves most. Will he try and get away with it and be the boy he always wanted to be, or will he come clean and face the music? When things get out of hand… It’s A Lot!
Oyeniran is on both sides of the camera, starring as leading man Shaun, and he’s joined by the likes of Jazzie Zonzolo, Roxanne Pallett, Red Madrell, Kojo, Eddie Kadi, Vas Blackwood, Jack Doolan, and Tim Westwood.
Oyeniran makes his directorial debut co-directing with Darwood Grace, with the script co-written by Oyeniran and Nick Walker.
It’s a Lot was set to be released on our shores on 21st August, but will now be opening a little later on 25th October. That release sees it opening against such blockbuster fare as Ender’s Game, Seventh Son, and Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2, as well as what promises to be a hugely hilarious return from Johnny Knoxville in Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa. Needless to say, it should be a really big weekend for cinemas here in the UK.
