Rob Brydon & Steve Coogan Are Back on 'The Trip to Greece' Trailer
"Let me swim to the sirens!" They're back!! For one last travel adventure. IFC Films has unveiled an official trailer for The Trip to Greece, the fourth film in Michael Winterbottom's comedic The Trip series, which launched in 2010 with just The Trip (around the UK). Then followed up with The Trip to Italy in 2014, The Trip to Spain in 2017, and now The Trip to Greece in 2020. Rob Brydon and Steve Coogan return as old friends traveling together, in what is being marketed as their final journey. Though who knows, maybe we'll see another one a few years down the road? There's many more places to go… The Trip to Greece also stars Kareem Alkabbani, Marta Barrio, Rebecca Johnson, and Claire Keelan. These seem to be getting better and better, and they look like so much fun. Plus all the food! And the sights! To die for, right? A much more absurd and comedic "friends" version of the Before films, perhaps. Either way, looks like a good time.
Here's the official trailer (+ poster) for Michael Winterbottom's The Trip to Greece, from YouTube:
