After scoring high marks at Cannes and Sundance, last year's pitch-black comedy/drama Sightseers from director Ben Wheatley (Kill List, ABCs of Death segment “U is for Unearthed”), executive produced by Shaun of the Dead's Edgar Wright, is headed for theatrical release next month. In advance of that, distributor IFC Films has unfurled the film's US poster art:
Sightseers stars Steve Oram and Alice Lowe as a married couple on a road trip with their dog across the British Isles that soon turns sour when complications with family, obnoxious fellow travelers and other annoying people drive them to the brink of madness. After its showings at Cannes and Sundance, it picked up the British Independent Film Award for Best Screenplay, and now it's headed for the US: it opens May 10th at New York's Sunshine Cinema and Los Angeles's Nuart Theater before premiering on demand May 13th.
Here's the UK trailer, which is pretty awesome:
