Sacha Baron Cohen and Mark Strong are ‘The Brothers Grimsby’ in First Trailer

Written by on October 30, 2015 


After his comedy Borat had massive success around the world, it’s been mostly diminishing returns for Sacha Baron Cohen. Bruno and The Dictator failed to reach the funny levels of his previous work, but now he’s back for another try. The Brothers Grimsby, previously titled Grimsby, follows the actor as the idiotic brother of a master spy, played by Mark Strong.

Coming from Louis Leterrier (Now You See Me, The Transporter), the first teaser has now landed ahead of a release next spring. While Leterrier certainly has the chops to direct action, the one comedy bit here (featuring Rebel Wilson) feels a bit stale, particularly after getting the enjoyable Spy this past summer. Hopefully much better is in store for the film, which also stars Penelope Cruz, Isla Fisher, Gabourey Sidibe, Annabelle Wallis, and Ian McShane. Check out the preview below.

Nobby (Sacha Baron Cohen), a sweet but dimwitted English football hooligan, reunites with his long-lost brother Sebastian (Mark Strong), a deadly MI6 agent, to prevent a massive global terror attack and prove that behind every great spy is an embarrassing sibling.

Nobby has everything a man from Grimsby could want, including 11 children andthe most gorgeous girlfriend in the northeast of England (Rebel Wilson). There’s only one thing missing: his little brother, Sebastian, 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 opens on March 4th, 2016.
