Nowhere Boys: The Book of Shadows – Coming Soon

A feature-length Nowhere Boys movie is set for release this January, following the multi-award winning success of ACTF supported production Nowhere Boys – Series 1 and 2.

The movie is set a year from where the series two finale left off; the boys are now back home in Bremin and struggling with everyday teenage life. That is, until Felix discovers a magically sealed “Book of Shadows”. Unwittingly this releases a powerful force of chaos, and the gang is reluctantly drawn into a showdown that threatens their world and all they love…

Shot in suburban Melbourne, Nowhere Boys: The Book of Shadows is produced by Matchbox Pictures with the assistance of Screen Australia, the Australian Broadcasting Corporation and Film Victoria, and will be distributed in Australia and New Zealand by the ACTF. 

Nowhere Boys: The Book of Shadows opens in selected Australian cinemas on 1 January 2016.
