Did the first clip from Ben Wheatley's SIGHTSEERS touch you?

James Marsh, Asian Editor
We love Brighton-based filmmaker Ben Wheatley. From his brilliant armchair gangster flick DOWN TERRACE to the international hitman sensation that was the chilling KILL LIST, he is doing everything he can to wipe that stuttering, self-depracating Hugh Grant/Richard Curtis image of England from your minds once and for all. His latest, SIGHTSEERS, is due to have its debut at Cannes this coming week, and as he packs his bags and heads for the sunny South of France, Wheatley has just released the first clip from the film on his website. If I am not mistaken this "place of cultural interest" is Avebury, a mythical pagan site of ley lines and randomly erected stones, not too far from the famous Stonehenge. A site of such reverence to some, as this clip reveals, that even dog poo is not welcome, despite its fertile properties. But will intrepid campers Chris (Steve Oram) and Tina (Alice Lowe) stand for such nonsense? Viddy well...

    So, Honey Bunny from Pulp Fiction moved to England with Ringo after the failed coffee shop heist. She since left Ringo, and is now sightseeing (NBK style) with Joss Whedon.
