A shorter but still brilliant new trailer arrives for Ben Wheatley’s dark comedy ‘Sightseers’

Ben Wheatley is a non-stop directing machine at the moment. His awesome film Kill List had barely been released and he was already working on his next feature, Sightseers. Now that Sightseers is prepping for its big UK release on 30th November, Wheatley recently announced that his next feature, the trippy A Field in England, has already wrapped! Incredible.

As for Sightseers, it looks superb, and the film has picked up some truly excellent word of mouth after its festival run this year. Those who have seen the brilliant Kill List (and if you haven’t, there is no excuse) will be eagerly waiting to see if Wheatley can match its genius. I believe he will, on a totally different level, but for me Sightseers could we challenge Seven Psychopaths as the best dark comedy of the year.

The new trailer landed yesterday, and it is a shorter version of what we have already seen, so check it out below.

Directed by Ben Wheatley, Sightseers was written by Steve Oram and Alice Lowe, who both star in the ultra dark comedy. Studio Canal will handle distribution here in the UK.

Chris (Steve Oram) wants to show Tina (Alice Lowe) his world, and he wants to do it his way – on a journey through the British Isles in his beloved Abbey Oxford Caravan. Tina’s led a sheltered life, and there are things that Chris needs her to see – the Crich Tramway Museum, the Ribblehead Viaduct, the Keswick Pencil Museum and the rolling countryside that separates these wonders in his life. But it doesn’t take long for the dream to fade. Litterbugs, noisy teenagers and pre-booked caravan sites, not to mention Tina’s meddling mother, soon conspire to shatter Chris’ dreams and send him, and anyone who rubs him up the wrong way, over a very jagged edge…

A keen enthusiast and collector of all horror and extreme films. I can be picky as i like quality in my horror. This doesn't necessarily mean it has to be a classic, but as long as it has something to impress me then i'm a fan. I watch films by the rule that if it doesn't bring out some kind of emotive response then it aint worth watching.
