HALIFAX - Our favourite trailer park delinquents were delighted to be back on the East Coast after going west to promote their new movie, Trailer Park Boys: Don’t Legalize It.
Bubbles (Mike Smith), Ricky (Robb Wells), and Julian (John Paul Tremblay) took the red carpet in character for the Halifax premiere at Oxford Theatre on Wednesday, along with the rest of the cast.
“This is the real premiere for us,” Ricky said in an interview with Metro.
“I had a couple rums on the way over. It’s fantastic. I didn’t know we had drivers all night.”
“We have drivers all night? Aw f—, I wish somebody had told me that,” Bubbles responded, as he sipped on what he said was a glass of straight tequila.
In their return to the big screen, the trio is outrageous as ever as they embark on a road trip to Ontario.
Ricky goes to Ottawa to protest marijuana legalization out of fear it would threaten his grow-op, Julian heads to Montreal after coming up with a scheme to sell “military grade piss” to people undergoing drug testing, and Bubbles goes to Kingston to pick up the school bus left to him by his deceased mother.
“You know, if they’re gonna legalize it, they just gotta not increase unemployment for people like me,” Ricky said, remaining in character. “If they’re gonna legalize it, you have to buy it from us. It’s not fair to people like me. It’s gonna put me out of a job.”
The film hits theatres Friday, April 18 — because the boys figured people might have other plans April 20, they said.
The crew also just finished filming 10 new episodes of the Trailer Park Boys TV show, which ended after seven seasons in 2008. Season 8 will be available to stream exclusively on Netflix this fall.
“Ricky looked stupid the whole time,” Julian said.
Shooting for Season 9 is scheduled to begin next month.
“I think season eight’s gonna turn out to be the best season that they ever made because they shot all the craziest stuff we’ve ever done,” Bubbles said.
Trailer Park Boys: Don’t Legalize It will also be available on Netflix after it hits theatres.
