Seriously. I hope Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon do a new one of these movies at the same rate until forever. It would make me happy.
Remember The Trip? That film in which Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon travel together through Northern England ostensibly to do culinary reviews for a news paper but actually to just do a bunch of improvised comedy over food?
It was a funny, and surprisingly somber, movie which I rather liked. The trailer for it went crazy viral based on a scene in which they duel their Michael Caine impressions.
Now they’ve made a sequel, The Trip to Italy, and the first clip from it is, obviously, more dueling Michael Caine.
It’s not for everyone, but I’m a sucker for Steve Coogan’s brand of humour. Here’s a trailer for his upcoming movie starring his long time character Alan Partridge.
Not much to say really. If you like him already you’ll like it, if you haven’t seen him before it’s a 50/50 shot whether you will.
Now all I need to know is a North American release date.
Have you had your heartstrings tuggeed recently? No? Well watch this trailer then.
I haven’t read What Maisie Knew but I am aware of the plot. Updating it from it’s 1890s context to now is makes a lot of sense. At the time of it’s writing the book was a reflection on society in which the story was somewhat scandalous whereas now it’s story is the new normal for a lot of people. It’ll be interesting to see how much of the original criticism comes through.
