Four New Exclusive Sightseers Posters
'If it's rocking, don't come knocking'

Ben Wheatley's latest, Sightseers, is shaping up to be a doozy, a bleakly hilarious British Badlands or 'On The B-Road', if you want to be all Kerouac-y about it. The film has four new character posters well, if a caravan can be a character to show off, with Steve Oram and Alice Lowe to the fore as the roadtripping odd couple, Chris and Tina.


Look closely at the posters and you'll get a pretty decent sense of the mix of mirth and the macabre that spikes Ben Wheatley's Kill List follow-up. And just in case you didn't know already, Sightseers takes Chris, Tina, their caravan and that dog on a jaunt around some of northern England's most idiosyncratic tourist attractions.

Sightseers gets a UK premiere at the BFI London Film Festival on October 20 and October 21, before rolling out nationwide on November 30.

I feel compelled to jump to the defense of Kill List
BatSpider & dugfinger are obviously entitled to their opinions even if they are talking out of their arses! Kill List is an idiot filter. Perhaps there weren`t enough explosions or giant robots in it for their liking! More

'acclaimed director' on the posters is the joke
agreed with dugfinger, Kill List was crap. More

Looks good
Does look rather good. I thought Kill List was over-rated crap though. Really didn't understand all the amazing reviews that got at all. More

This looks bloody hilarious More
