Inspired by the book of the same name by Dave Roberts, new movie The Bromley Boys tells the story of the writer as a young 15-year-old and his love for the worst football team in the UK – Bromley FC! Taking place on the cusp of the 1970s, with all of the iconic music, fashion and of course, moustaches that came along as part of that era, the film will capture the lengths this one devoted fan will go to in order to save his favourite football club from extinction. Things only get more complicated however when the youngster goes through the motions of falling in love, with the girl of his affections turning out to be Bromley FC’s chairman’s daughter.
This week, ahead of the film’s world premiere at Wembley Stadium on May 24, 2018, we’ve got the exclusive first look at the movie with a fantastic new trailer! Check it out below:
An impressive British cast comes together to build the talent of The Bromley Boys, including Adam Deacon, Ewen Macintosh, Martine McCutcheon, Brenock O’Connor, Jamie Foreman, Alan Davies, Gareth Hale, Betsy Blue-English and Sean Garnier.
Steve Kelly serves as director, with TJ Herbert and Dean Fisher co-producing.
Chatting about the film, co-producer Herbert says: “It’s been quite a journey getting the film to where it is now. It was a phenomenal team effort, on a very tight budget with one single goal – getting the best possible film on the screen. I believe we’ve done that and can’t wait to finally have The Bromley Boys out there for all to see.”
Speaking ahead of the event, Roberts comments: “I love the fact that the premiere is being held at Wembley Stadium because that’s where the story of The Bromley Boys begins – with England winning the World Cup in 1966. Wembley has added significance, too, now that Bromley have made the FA Trophy final which takes place there four days before the premiere. May is going to be a very special month.”
