If you purchased our averagely-dimensioned but misleadingly-titled Big Book of Top Gear, you’ll have noticed an advert for ‘Top Gear: The Movie’. It starred Matt Damon as Clarkson, Dame Judi Dench as May and Leo DiCaprio as Hammond.
Some critics described it as ‘sodding brilliant’, others were less congratulatory. This new offering however, is not another ‘Top Gear: The Movie’, but rather Top Gear AT the Movies, where Mssrs Hammond and May present a film involving cars. On film.
It’s probably better than an actual real-life movie, with actors and everything. Though that largely depends on what movie you’re comparing it to. It lacks the ‘Heartwarming!’ drama of Titanic, and contains considerably less bitey alien action than Aliens.
In fact, we’re not really sure it is better than an actual movie. Why not watch the trailer and judge for yourself. The whole finished thing is released today in time for all good Christmas stockings, which might give you a better idea. And you can order it here.
