Even if you didn’t see Michael Winterbottom‘s “The Trip“—and by God, you really should—you likely saw the viral clip from the film, featuring Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon (playing exaggerated versions of themselves) competing in their impersonations of Michael Caine. It was fantastically hilarious stuff, one great bit from a film full of them, and with a sequel on the way, they’ve got more Caine to share.
“The Trip To Italy” finds the acerbic pair back on the road, this time retracing the steps of the Romantic poets’ through Italy, and yes, indulging in some great meals. And in this first clip from the movie, we find them once again diving into their Michael Caine impersonations, but one that eventually sees them taking a jab at the growly voices in “The Dark Knight Rises” too. All told, pretty fun stuff from two guys we can’t wait to spend more time with on the big screen.
“The Trip To Italy” is playing the Sundance Film Festival this week. No release date yet for this IFC Films release, but you can watch below.
