YES!!! Another Shadbolt!!! Someone should be keeping a tally!!! :P

I really, REALLY hope they do at least half of this publicity in Australia. I don't know how they do it.... it must be a little draining answering the same questions over and over and what's with the marriage proposals???? To think, I thought I was crazy!!! :supz:

Can someone tell me please...... is it just me or are Bret's eyes incredibly sparkly??? I mean, they have always been a feature there, but for some reason they are really catching my attention atm for just being very, very sparkly. :roll:

:roll2: Haha, good catch, gibbs! Who knew films beginning with "Tw" would have similar profile pics. ;)

I know, they have done so much publicity for the film over the past week! Good on them! I really hope the film does well in the box office.

Dunedin's two little boys home for premiere

Two little boys come of age in Dunedin today.
However, one of the first things film-maker Robert Sarkies and his author brother Duncan Sarkies did on arriving back in their home town was head straight for a playground.

"There's a dolphin-riding scene in our film, so we couldn't resist doing some whale-riding," Robert joked at the St Kilda playground.

The Sarkies and Flight of the Conchords star Bret McKenzie attended the Dunedin premiere of their latest film, Two Little Boys, at the Rialto cinema last night, before the film opens for general release in New Zealand cinemas today.

"It's opening on 60 screens around the country, which is basically every decent-sized cinema in New Zealand," Robert said.

"That's three times the size of the release of Scarfies and Out of the Blue."

The film is based on Duncan's 2008 novel about the brothers' family holidays in the Catlins.

"I think every writer mines their own life for details. It's about writing what you know," Duncan said.

"It's been amazing to see your idea get turned into a film and then, suddenly, you're standing on a film set. It's been crazy, but a lot of fun."

The Sarkies' parents, Doug and Moira, still live in Dunedin and attended the New Zealand premiere of the film in Invercargill last month.

"It's always special having a Dunedin premiere," Robert said.

"I left Dunedin in the mid-'90s, but I've never left, in a way. Dunedin people have always embraced my films and my films have been infused with something of the Dunedin spirit."

The Sarkies visited their Kaikorai Valley College almer mater yesterday, where they were presented with a cake by pupils.

"There has never been a film shot in the Catlins before and it was a stunning location," Robert said.

"I like to make the visual splendour of the landscape offset what's on screen. There's some incredible helicopter footage of the Catlins landscape."

The trio argued yesterday - like kids in the back of a car on a family holiday - about whether the Catlins was in Otago or Southland.

"The Catlins is like the pavlova of Otago," McKenzie quipped.

Two Little Boys also features Dunedin actor Maaka Pohatu and Australian comedian Hamish Blake.

The Sarkies and McKenzie head back to Wellington this morning.

Two Little Boys has big opening day

Friday, 21 September, 2012 - 17:35
New Zealand film TWO LITTLE BOYS has opened to number one place at the New Zealand box office, ahead of block-buster franchise Madagascar 3.

Public pre-release screenings, including the well supported premiere in Invercargill, were good indicators that the New Zealand movie going public were set to enjoy this comic ‘bromance’ from the Sarkies brothers, who last collaborated on the hit film Scarfies.

Troy Lum, Managing Director of Hopscotch Films/ eOne, the film's distributor, said "It's a fantastic opening day result and is a credit to all involved in making the film. It's wonderful that New Zealand audiences have embraced such a distinctive local production."

TWO LITTLE BOYS is set in Invercargill, New Zealand in the early 1990’s. Directed by Robert Sarkies (Scarfies, Out of the Blue) and stars comedians; Bret McKenzie from New Zealand’s acclaimed Flight of the Conchords, Hamish Blake from Hamish and Andy and Maaka Pohatu who recently played a lead role in the celebrated stage play Strange Resting Places. TWO LITTLE BOYS producer Vicky Pope comments "We’re absolutely thrilled the film has opened at number one. This is no mean feat for a New Zealand film and we thank the New Zealand public for this support. The story has everything- a crazy road trip, a love story, wild animals and even a bit of attempted murder. Weekend audiences are in for a very funny ride."

TWO LITTLE BOYS was released by Hopscotch Films/ eOne on Thursday 20 September.

Interview with Bret & Hamish on 3 News- over 17 mins long but v. funny :lol:

Bret McKenzie and Hamish Blake discuss Two Little Boys
Thu, 27 Sep 2012 12:03p.m
By Kate Rodger


In case you haven't heard, Bret McKenzie and Hamish Blake have joined forces for a new Kiwi film.

The Robert Sarkies-directed flick tells the tale of two best friends who have quite a conundrum on their hands; a dead backpacker who needs to be disposed of.

McKenzie and Blake are both funny guys in their own right, so their interview was less of a Q&A and more of a gag reel.

Watch the video for the full interview with Bret McKenzie and Hamish Blake.
