TOMORROW WHEN THE WAR BEGAN 2: Sequel Talk after 2010 Film TV Premiere

Caitlin Stasey Phoebe Tonkin Tomorrow When the War Began

Tomorrow When the War Began 2 interest sparked by Tomorrow When the War Began TV premiere. The recent TV premiere of Tomorrow When the War Began on Australian television has initiated renewed interest in Tomorrow When the War Began 2, the sequel to the 2010 film Tomorrow When the War Began. The “$27 million film failed to win an audience in the US and several other major territories and, despite an announcement that the sequel would start shooting in 2011 [written about here: Tomorrow When the War Began 2 (2012): Sequel Moving Ahead], was put on hold [because of the event detailed here: I, Frankenstein’s Stuart Beattie delays Tomorrow, When The War Began 2 (2012)]. More than 18 months later, it remains stalled in development [Tomorrow, When The War Began 2 (2012): Cities Fight for Production] but the TV screening brought forth a flood of fans.”

The online “flood” after the Australian TV premiere of Tomorrow When the War Began began via Twitter:

  1. Lincoln Lewis, who played Kevin in the film, led the banter.

    Thanks so much to every1 sending tweets out tonight about TWTWB, makin me all nostalgic! Love that there’s still so much support 4the film!
  3. The outpouring of support prompted actors Phoebe Tonkin (who played air-headed blonde Fi) and Rachel Hurd-Wood (Corrie), to reminisce about the experience.

    I learnt a good lesson filming Tomorrow When the War Began: Blondes Do have more fun (and casualties) I had a black eye during filming

    @1PhoebeJTonkin I’ll never forget that trip to the pharmacy ! X
  6. But, with promises of a sequel still in development – or possibly a TV series rather than another film – fans had just one question they wanted answered. Unfortunately, the answer was not what they wanted to hear.

    @linc_lewis yeah it is an awesome movie. Are we ever going to see the rest of series?
  8. linc_lewis
    @sarahstef9 I don’t know… I don’t think the producers are doing anymore :(((
  9. Johnny_LT4
    @linc_lewis we are waiting for the rest of the series
  10. linc_lewis
    @Johnny_LT4 haha me too !!
  11. sharelle_x
    @linc_lewis just watched it for the first time. Genuinely confused?! Where’s the rest?!
  12. linc_lewis
    @sharelle_x awh don’t even get me started ay… We’re all asking that 🙁
  13. The excitement prompted Lincoln Lewis to trend briefly in Australia.
  14. TrendsAustralia
    Lincoln Lewis, @linc_lewis is now trending in Australia
  15. Lewis recently appeared in local shark thriller Bait 3D – a film which bombed at the local box office but was a hit in China and other territories. It’s cold-comfort for TWTWB fans.
