The cast for this one features Sebastian Croft, Emilia Jones, Nick Frost, Craig Roberts, Kim Cattrall, Rupert Graves, Kate Nash, Alex Macqueen and Sir Derek Jacobi. And the movie is promising to be a summer holiday treat.

Directed by Dominic Brigstocke, the film has been penned by Jessica Swale, Giles Pilbrow and Caroline Norris. And here’s the first trailer for the movie…


The full synopsis for the film reads as follows…

HORRIBLE HISTORIES: THE MOVIE – ROTTEN ROMANS will transport audiences back to Roman Britain and embrace the timeless, irreverent humour of the successful books and TV series. Atti is a Roman teenager with brains but very little brawn. When one of his schemes falls foul of Emperor Nero, Atti is forced to join the army and sent to miserable, cold, wet Britain. Things go from bad to worse when Atti is captured by Orla, a feisty teenage Celt desperate to prove herself as a warrior. Meanwhile a furious Nero is determined to crush the British rebellion, led by Boudicca. As the Romans prepare for an historic showdown with the Celts at the Battle of Watling Street the two new friends find themselves lined up on opposite sides of the battlefield. The film features rising stars Sebastian Croft (GAME OF THRONES) as Roman teenager Atti and Emilia Jones (PATRICK) as his Celtic rival Orla leading an all-star cast including Nick Frost (SHAUN OF THE DEAD), Craig Roberts (SUBMARINE), Kim Cattrall (SEX AND THE CITY), Kate Nash (GLOW), Rupert Graves (SHERLOCK), Alex Macqueen (THE INBETWEENERS), Sir Derek Jacobi, Alexander Armstrong, Lee Mack, Warwick Davis, Lucy Montgomery and more.

The movie is in cinemas from July 26th.
