Twent-five years after Geoffrey Wright’s controversial film first hit our screens, Romper Stomper will be back as an exclusive six-part mini series on Stan. And we have the first trailer right here. Considering the current political climate, it’s bone-chilling.

Trading swastikas for the Southern Cross, Romper Stomper follows a new generation of fascists and anti-fascists, weaving the narrative from multiple view points. This story feels as raw and real than ever; an echo of the current racial, religious and political hostilities both in Australia and abroad.

Starring Lachy Hulme (Power Games: The Packer-Murdoch Story, Beaconsfield), David Wenham (Lion, Top of the Lake, Killing Time), Jacqueline McKenzie (The Water Diviner, Love Child, Romper Stomper), the entire series will drop on New Years Day on Stan.

And here’s the poster!
