Trailer: Sightseers (Ben Wheatley, 2012)

The official trailer for Ben Wheatley's Sightseers is now online. Fresh from his brutal shocker, Kill List, which caused a stir on the festival circuit last year, Wheatley is back with another bloody outing which The Hollywood Reporter is calling "the most consistently hilarious Brit-com for a good half decade - probably since Edgar Wright's Hot Fuzz".

Very well received at MIFF earlier in the month, this is certainly one to keep tabs on. It is distributed through Rialto Distribution and will hit Australian screens December 26, 2012.

Chris (Steve Oram) wants to show Tina (Alice Lowe) his world and he wants to do it his way - on a journey through this sceptred isle 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's dreams and send him, and anyone who rubs him up the wrong way, over a very jagged edge...
