Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon Survey the Summer Movie Scene With Movieline

UK actors, comics and longtime pals Rob Brydon and Steve Coogan (pictured L-R) last week paid a visit to the Tribeca Film Festival, which hosted the American premiere of their new road movie The Trip. But that didn’t mean they weren’t game for a lightning round of summer-movie first impressions.

Charting the duo’s five-day tour of inns, restaurants and nature around the north of England, The Trip reunites Coogan and Brydon with director Michael Winterbottom (A Cock and Bull Story) for a roundly amusing, wildly improvisatory, and often surprisingly poignant glimpse at two friends, two careers and two fathers for whom sharing the same car hardly means sharing the same path.

The Trip itself is a summer film, opening June 10 in limited release and arriving June 22 on VOD. We’ll have more about their movie closer to that time, but meanwhile, Coogan and Brydon spent a few minutes digesting some of the season’s bigger, blockbustery titles with Movieline.
