Here's the trailer for Michael Winterbottom's sequel to The Trip called The Trip to Italy, which sees Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon venturing off to the beautiful Italian landscape to try more fancy food and deliver more Michael Caine impressions. The Trip to Italy is currently airing in miniseries form across the pond and premieres in the US on August 15th.
Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon's sequel to their comedy The Trip, called The Trip to Italy, was filmed last year.

The Trip to Italy was filmed as a six-part TV series and is also edited into a movie version, like the original. There's no word on when audiences will be able to see it, but here's a funny clip at least.

Steve Coogan is one of the funniest people on the face of the planet. Better known in his native UK than here in the States, he's nonetheless made a mark in American movies in The Trip, Tropic Thunder and Hamlet 2. But he's really at his best in his British TV shows: Knowing Me, Knowing You, I'm Alan Partridge, Saxondale and others. If you want the ultimate intro to Coogan, or are already a fan and want to own the bulk of his work, The Steve Coogan Collection is absolutely incredible.
