Michael Winterbottom, Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon are back with a sequel to The Trip that premiered this week at Sundance called, appropriately enough as it’s set in Italy, The Trip to Italy. This interview with Steve and Rob in The Guardian is so gleeful I was basically screaming with delight all the way through.
Speaking of Sundance premieres, this is clearly the Bill Hader film I’ve been waiting my entire life for.
Speaking of American comedies, David Wain and Michael Showalter have made a film taking the loving piss out of rom coms starring Amy Poehler and Paul Rudd and it is called They Came Together (PUNS!). Here is a scene from the film that you can laugh over and also use to fuel the part of you that constantly longs for a Wet Hot American Summer sequel. Have this extra interview with Michael Showalter just because I love him with my whole heart.
Finally, some Australian films that aren’t the standard ones you see listed on every great Australian films list that I put together for Broadsheet. Happy long weekend!
