It’s the oft-told tale of the late in life reunion of a football hooligan and his secret agent brother for Sacha Baron Cohen’s latest film. The new trailer for Grimsby has arrived on our doorstep, ticking, today.
Imagine a man who makes his living entering Liam Gallagher look-a-like competitions and fishing scrap metal out of the local canal as James Bond and you’ve got this down to the ground.
While the broadness of Sacha Baron Cohen’s big screen adventures has sometimes been its undoing having Mark Strong as a straight man looks to be the key to this film.
Plus Peter Baynham had a hand in the script and we love him, so we’ll definitely be watching with keen interest in February of 2016.
Rebel Wilson, Penelope Cruz and Isla Fisher join in Louis Leterrier’s latest.
Trailer time brothers,
Not enough, how about a POSTER?!
UPDATE: Hey look! It’s a new, slightly dodgy poster and some new images! I know!
That poster is a bit wrong isn’t it? Wonder if he Spinal-Tapped it.
Hey friend, got a synopsis? Sure man…
In the action-comedy Grimsby, when Sebastian Graves (Mark Strong), a deadly MI6 agent, takes on a mission to prevent a massive global terror attack, he must unfortunately reunite with his long-lost brother Nobby (Sacha Baron Cohen), a sweet but dimwitted English football hooligan… proving that behind every great spy is an embarrassing sibling.
Nobby 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, for whom Nobby has been searching for 28 years, after they were separated as kids. Nobby sets off to reunite with Sebastian, unaware that not only is his brother MI6’s deadliest assassin, he’s just uncovered plans for an imminent global terrorist attack.
On the run and wrongfully accused, Sebastian realises that if he is going to save the world, he will need the help of its biggest idiot.
