SECOND HAND WEDDING World Premiere on May 7

PRESS RELEASE
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – Friday March 14, 2008

SECON

SECOND HAND WEDDING will have its World Premiere on May 7 at the Embassy Theatre.

With post production in full swing SECOND HAND WEDDING is in the best possible hands. From the edit room where Academy Award nominee Michael Horton (Lord Of The Rings -The Two Towers) weaves his magic, to post production sound which is supervised by Michael Hopkins and mixed by Mike Hedges both are Double Academy Award winners (Lord of the Rings – King Kong).

Geraldine Brophy shines in her role as bargain-hunting junkie, Jill. Most remembered for her role as Moira Crombie from New Zealand’s best loved drama Shortland Street. Multi talented Geraldine is also heavily involved in the New Zealand theatre scene with directing, producing and acting. In her subsequent 22 years in the industry she has played more than 150 roles on stage.

SECOND HAND WEDDING also stars Grant Roa from Whale Rider and Patrick Wilson alongside rising New Zealand talents Holly Shanahan and Ryan O’Kane.

Metropolis Films has been appointed as the distributor for SECOND HAND WEDDING. Co-Producer Nigel Stanford says "Gordon Adam of Metropolis Films was a standout choice. His excited response to the script and then the first cut of the film was music to our ears. His energy and enthusiasm for the film know no bounds, he was even selling SECOND HAND WEDDING to cinema operators three months before he had signed a contract with us.”

Gordon responds “As soon as I read the script I knew that SECOND HAND WEDDING was going to deliver a delicious slice of Kiwi life to cinemagoers throughout the country. Being based on real life events the story rings so true, and the payoff in the final scenes will have patrons leaving their local cinema with smiles on their faces.”

The premiere will be co-hosted by the Lions club of Silverstream Wellington as a fundraiser and the major beneficiary will be Ronald McDonald House.

SECOND HAND WEDDING releases in cinemas across the country on May 15, 2008.
