EVENTS “SONS OF SUMMER” Premiere – HOTA, 23rd August 2023 Ocean Road Magazine // August 24, 2023 WORDS: Lionel Midford PHOTOGRAPHY Brian Usher - www.usherusher.com Filmed on the Gold Coast – SONS OF SUMMER stars TEMUERA MORRISON (“Star Wars: The Book of Boba Fett”, “Aquaman”, “Once Were Warriors”) ISABEL LUCAS (“Transformers”, “Daybreakers”, “Red Dawn”) and introducing JOE DAVIDSON as Sean in his first major movie role. Phil Avalon said shooting was challenging during the COVID winter, but the surf coverage, the glamorous mansions of the rich and famous that contrasted with the dark, rustic backwaters where the crime lords do their business, highlights the Gold Coast as a film making capital. The film is a long awaited follow on from the 1977 hit film by Avalon, starring Mel Gibson, ‘Summer City’. Sons of Summer is produced by Phil Avalon and Tim Maddocks. Lionsgate/Grindstone will release the film in US cinemas on July 28, 2023. Worldwide sales are being handled by Tricoast Worldwide.
