On 22 May, IFC Films will release the Steve Coogan/Rob Brydon comedy The Trip To Greece on VOD in the United States. The Michael Winterbottom film is the fourth in the series, continuing-on from 2010’s The Trip, The Trip To Italy, (2014) and 2017’s The Trip To Spain. Cue plenty of Michael Caine, Sean Connery, Roger Moore and Anthony Hopkins impressions.
Oddly, in the UK each Trip is released as a series, with each journey playing-out over six episodes lasting 30 minutes. I caught The Trip To Greece about a month ago via Now TV/Sky Atlantic. It’s pitched as the finale to the franchise and I really enjoyed it. However, my favourite series (film) is the original 2010 instalment.
With most of the world is in lockdown/quarantine, this might be a good way of feeling that you’ve actually gone somewhere.
