Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon are going on another ‘Trip’ with director Michael Winterbottom in the upcoming film, “The Trip to Greece.” And as seen in the new trailer, years have passed since their first encounter but the two leads are clearly firing on all cylinders as they venture into a new European territory.
“The Trip to Greece” follows Coogan and Brydon as they venture into the beautiful country to retrace the steps of Odysseus over a week-long journey. And as you might expect, the duo is unable to have a conversation without debating about life’s issues, while also having a bit of a laugh.
As mentioned, the film stars Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon. ‘Trip’ is directed by Michael Winterbottom. This is far from the first time the trio has worked together. Previously, Winterbottom directed Coogan and Brydon in films such as “The Trip,” “The Trip to Italy,” and “The Trip to Spain.” Basically, if you’re a fan of those films, why wouldn’t you be excited about a trip to Greece?
“The Trip to Greece” arrives in theaters (maybe) and VOD on May 22.
Here’s the synopsis:
When Odysseus left Troy it took him ten years to get back to his home in Ithaca. Steve and Rob have only six days on their own personal odyssey in THE TRIP TO GREECE. On the way they argue about tragedy and comedy, astronomy and biology, myth, history, democracy and the meaning of life! Featuring locations such as: Temple of Apollo at Delphi, the Ancient Agora of Athens, the Ancient Theatre of Epidaurus, the unique island of Hydra, the Caves of Diros, Nestor’s Palace, Niokastro Fortress in Pylos, and Ancient Stagira, as well as a lot of shooting in restaurants and hotels in Athens, Hydra, Lesvos, Chalkidiki, Pelion, Kavala, and at the Peloponnese.
