Tomorrow When the War Began coming to the UK

Because of the huge on-going success of the movie in Australia (11 million +) and New Zealand (1.2 million +)  Paramount Pictures has now acquired distribution rights for:

  • the UK
  • Scandinavia
  • Russia
  • Portugal
  • South Africa

Whoo Hoo!

Also - it's official: #2 The Dead of the Night and #3 The Third Day the Frost (also published as A Killing Frost) are being made into feature films for the big screen.

There is talk of doing a shoot off TV series after the first three feature films...

Last week I re-read books #1, #2, #3, #4 and #5 in the series and loved them just as much as always :)

Here's the trailer below (in case you missed it the first time I posted).

I've seen the movie twice. Once with my man (who thought it rocked) and once with my sister - who hasn't read the book*, she absolutely loved it (and cried!) and took my book with her back to Sydney.

My rambling review of the movie :)

*despite years of my occasional nagging... I think my family tune out to my book ramblings...

Also, for those who have read the book - John has given permission to the screen writers to resurrect one of the main characters who die in the books if they so choose to keep them for further movies. You can probably guess which one...

Have a fab weekend! 



  1. Great news, can't wait to see it in London. So excited!

  2. Yay, so exciting!!

    Not sure if I'm too keen on that last bit, though. I think it might change things too much in the future movies :/

  3. Ah, man Nomes, when I read your post I thought that said coming to the US. :(

  4. Ooh I hope it comes to the US soon!

  5. So happy for them, but totally bummed for me waaaaaaahhhhhhhh. Reading the book right now and LOVING it!!!!!

  6. What, no US? At least release it on dvd here!

  7. I hope it comes here!!! Maybe if the success keeps up it will get distribution here...

  8. Arg! Still no US release! Hopefully, it will come out on DVD --- someday!

  9. Can't wait to see the movie version of Tomorrow When the War Began. Loved the book. Thanks for recommending it.

  10. Tomorrow When the War Began was AWESOME!! I have all the books from both the Tomorrow Series and The Ellie Chronicles!

    I'm absolutely stoked that The Dead of the Night and The Third Day, The Frost is going to be made into movies. WOOHOO!!!

  11. lol That was meant to say I have read all the books from both series!!

    That's how excited I am about this lol

  12. Good news, though I suspect it will be a few months before Tomorrow... does appear in UK cinemas. The books aren't as big here as they clearly are in Australia, so Paramount are going to have to do some awareness publicity here. Also, they'd want to release it around a school holiday time. So I'd be surprised if we get to see it before 2011 - and it'll be on DVD and Blu-ray in Australia by then.

    I'm going to try to read the book before I see the film again.

  13. As a Brit, I was thrilled to read this. I've only read book one in the series so far, but book two is on my shelf right now awaiting my attention. Here's hoping the film hits the UK pretty soon, because I can't wait.


Thanks for the commenty love :)
