‘The Trip to Spain’ Clip: The Michael Caine Impressions Are Back
Besties Rob Brydon and Steve Coogan are back in action for The Trip to Spain, the third in what’s become a runaway franchise for the two actors as they travel the world, sample local cuisine, and become better friends by the day. In this new clip debuted by Sky Atlantic, the two buds bounce their Michael Caine and Mick Jagger impressions off of each other over glasses of wine.
The exact plot of The Trip to Spain isn’t known, other than the fact that, well, they go to Spain, but the basic concept is that Coogan is asked by The Observer to go on restaurant tours, and because his wife and everyone else is busy, he asks friend and eternal thorn in his side Rob Brydon to come along with him. If you need any convincing to watch these movies, our own Matt Singer wrote a manifesto last year about how The Trip is “the best current movie franchise on the planet.” If you need more convincing than that, you can just watch this.
The Trip actually started off as a television series from the BBC before being edited into a feature film. The second, The Trip to Italy, followed suit, premiering in movie form at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival. According to Collider, British audiences will get to watch The Trip to Spain on their TVs distributed by Sky Atlantic in 2017, and hopefully an American release won’t be too far off. These movies are just too much of a treat to miss.
