After wrapping up its third series on Sky Atlantic earlier this year, The Trip to Spain is hitting US cinemas.
Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon are hitting the big screen with The Trip to Spain, a feature-length edit of their series’ third outing, which wrapped up last month on Sky Atlantic.
A trailer for the film – directed as always by Michael Winterbottom – has landed online, and provides a reminder of what audiences love about the unlikely double-act’s foodie adventures, whether in England, Italy or Spain.
The official description of the film reads: “After jaunts through northern England and Italy, Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon embark on another deliciously deadpan culinary road trip. This time around, the guys head to Spain to sample the best of the country’s gastronomic offerings in between rounds of their hilariously off-the-cuff banter.
“Over plates of pintxos and paella, the pair exchange barbs and their patented celebrity impressions, as well as more serious reflections on what it means to settle into middle age. As always, the locales are breathtaking, the cuisine to die for, and the humor delightfully devilish.”
In other words, it goes like this: the two actors (playing fictionalised versions of themselves) take a tour of authentic local cuisine, peppering in humourous life observations, banter, and a boat-load of impressions. The chemistry between the two makes it all work, leading to the slightly surprising international success of the premise. Watch the trailer below.
