The Trip to Italy

A sequel to The Trip starring Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon, and directed by Michael Winterbottom premiered at the Sundance Film Festival this week. The Trip to Italy follows the same formula as the original (6 half hour TV episodes, and a re-edited film version). The pair travel restaurants across Italy in a Mini, and chat and one-up each other with some spot-on impressions.

See below for a clip, and get ready to watch another funny, quotable film soon.

Great, But Short Comic Book Runs

There’s a great, and well researched article over at CBR¬†showcasing 16 comics series from Marvel and DC that ended too soon. It happens a lot in comics of course, due to low sales, or a change in editorial or business mandate, or the departure of creators, but this is an interesting look at some different series that finished too soon.

I know most of the classic series on the list, such as Chase, and Aztek, but there’s also a few newer runs including Thor-The Mighty Avenger and S.W.O.R.D.
