The Trip to Italy — UK Trailer


added: Mon, Mar 24th '14

Steve Coogan, Rob Brydon and filmmaker Michael Winterbottom are hitting the road again in "The Trip to Italy," the sequel to their 2010 cult hit "The Trip," and here's your 30-second first peek at the upcoming improvisational comedy that sees the two British cutups traveling to Italy's countryside for another round of fine dining, long-winded conversations, celebrity impersonations and general sightseeing.

Coogan and Brydon continue to play exaggerated versions of themselves as two old acting buddies who tend to bicker with each other like an old married couple, though their love for four-star restaurants and Michael Caine seems to be keeping them glued together.

"The Trip to Italy" was acquired by IFC Films after it premiered at this year's Sundance. While it doesn't have a confirmed US release date, the road-trip comedy is debuting on TV in the UK, sometime in April -- it's the same month that it will screen in London's Sundance.

Michael Winterbottom's largely improvised 2010 film, The Trip, took comedians Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon -- or semifictionalized versions thereof -- on a restaurant tour around northern England. In this witty and incisive follow-up, Winterbottom reunites the pair for a new culinary road trip, retracing the steps of the Romantic poets' grand tour of Italy and indulging in some sparkling banter and impersonation-offs. Rewhetting our palates from the earlier film, the characters enjoy mouthwatering meals in gorgeous settings from Liguria to Capri while riffing on subjects as varied as Batman's vocal register, the artistic merits of "Jagged Little Pill," and, of course, the virtue of sequels.
