The Riot Club

"I'm sick to death of poor people!" Say what? The first trailer has debuted for a film called The Riot Club, adapted from a played by Laura Wade called "Posh" about a fictional "club" called the Riot Club at Oxford University in England, based on the Bullingdon Club. The "filthy rich, spoilt rotten" story involves a bunch of undergrads getting wild in the Riot Club and doing some deadly dangerous things. The cast includes Max Irons, Sam Claflin, Douglas Booth, Jessica Brown Findlay, Holliday Grainger, Olly Alexander, Tom Hollander and Sam Reid. This looks wild, debaucherous, potentially amusing, but mostly sad and crazy. I think I already prefer Scherfig's other two films, but I'll check this out when it comes by. Have fun.

Here's the first trailer for Lone Scherfig's The Riot Club, debuted by Film4 in the UK (via The Playlist):

Set amongst the privileged elite of Oxford University, The Riot Club follows Miles (Max Irons) and Alistair (Sam Claflin), two first year students determined to join the infamous Riot Club, where reputations can be made or destroyed over the course of a single evening. The Riot Club is directed by Danish filmmaker Lone Scherfig, who most recently directed One Day, and the Best Picture Academy Award nominee An Education. It is produced by Pete Czernin and Graham Broadbent of Blueprint Pictures (The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, Seven Psychopaths). Screenwriter Laura Wade has adapted her critically-acclaimed play, 'Posh', with development support from the BFI Film Fund & Film4. The film opens in the UK in September - stay tuned.

That trailer took a long time to get to the 'dark' part. I was not impressed. Where was the gay sex? I feel that was what was missing.

Could be a good section of British Parliament these guys, minus the fighting of course.

Oldest University in the world is Bologna (1088 AD), not Oxford (1096 AD) as claimed by the trailer. Bah.
