I know you’ve all been waiting a very long time for this moment. The first Saturday Night Live spin-off film to hit theatres in 10 years is almost upon us… that’s right it’s your very first trailer for MacGruber! I certainly had my doubts about a feature-length version of a recurring sketch that is nothing more than a MacGyver parody (surely most of us thought the initial announcement was a joke), but I have to admit, I’m starting to come around on this a little bit. We already heard some anonymous early buzz back in December claiming that it was “the best SNL film since Wayne’s World“. While that doesn’t necessarily mean much, this trailer does have some funny stuff in it.
Will Forte stars as the mullet-sporting secret agent who is called in to take down the evil Dieter Von Cunth (Val Kilmer) along with Special Agent Piper (Ryan Phillippe) and Vicki (Kristen Wiig). If they can keep this silly and absurd without spoofing the same action movie cliches that a million other comedies have done before, it just might be worth checking out. This is a red band trailer because of a couple F-bombs, but for the most part it’s pretty goofy and harmless. MacGruber hits theatres on April 23rd; disarm that age-restriction roadblock and check out the full trailer after the jump!
