There’s a whole lot of spying going on at the movies this year. We got Kingsman: The Secret Service, Spy and of course Spectre (and you could probably even throw Steven Spielberg’s Cold War drama Bridge of Spies on that same list) and it appears all the espionage shenanigans isn’t stopping next year. It may get much sillier though.
The Brothers Grimsby is the latest parody comedy from Sacha Baron Cohen (Ali G, The Dictator, Borat) and sees the English funnyman as the doofus brother of the world’s greatest spy, played by Mark Strong. The first red-band teaser trailer for the film just dropped and while it divulges very little in terms of story or character, it does give us an extended look at the really cool first person action sequences that director Louis Letterier (Transporter, The Incredible Hulk, Now You See Me) has crafted for the film. Also Sacha Baron Cohen’s sweaty back mid-coitus. Check it out below.
Nobby (Sacha Baron Cohen) has everything a man from Grimsby could want, including 11 children and the most gorgeous girlfriend in the northeast of England (Rebel Wilson). There’s only one thing missing: his little brother, Sebastian (Mark Strong), who Nobby has spent 28 years searching for after they were separated as kids. Nobby sets off to reunite with Sebastian, unaware that not only is his brother MI6’s deadliest assassin, but he’s just uncovered plans for an imminent global terrorist attack. On the run and wrongfully accused, Sebastian realizes that if he is going to save the world, he will need the help of its biggest idiot.
The Brothers Grimsby was co-written by Baron Cohen and Phil Johnston (Wreck-It Ralph), and it also stars Penelope Cruz, Rebel Wilson, Isla Fisher and Gabourey Sidibe. It is scheduled for release on March 4, 2016
