New clip from Ben Wheatley's Sightseers: watch now

Sightseers , the new film from Kill List director Ben Wheatley, has debuted a new clip online, in which Steve Oram and Alice Lowe have an argument with a rambler over an errant piece of excrement.

The new film will follow the relationship between a pair of holidaymakers who head to the British countryside for a few days of fresh air, only to find themselves pushed over the edge by a host of unfortunate incidents.

Wheatley has described the film as "lighter" in tone than Kill List (not much of a stretch, to be fair), but there's a nebulous air of tension in the new clip that suggests the abundant laughs (and there are plenty to be had here) will be balanced by something a little darker…

Check out the new clip, below…

Much of the dialogue was improvised by the cast, which would go some way towards explaining the fresh, naturalistic style on display here. As funny as the clip is however, there's something about the whole set-up that creates a definite sense of unease in the viewer. It might not be Kill List , but we're certain Wheatley has a surprise or two in store…

Executive produced by Edgar Wright, Sightseers will be appearing at Cannes as part of the Director's Fortnight strand, with a UK release date set to be confirmed for later in the year.
