Universal has just debuted the official trailer for MacGruber starring Will Forte, Ryan Phillippe, Kristen Wiig, Bill Hader, and Val Kilmer as the bad guy! The trailer can be seen over at IAmRogue.com and below. Believe it or not, I actually think this looks pretty damn good. I'm not a big fan of SNL humor anymore (and some of the jokes just didn't hit with me at all), but this at least looks like it was shot beautifully. And I hate to say it, but the explosions look pretty good, too. I'm impressed and will probably see this in theaters. And I must say I'm very happy that they decided to make this R-rated. Anyway, watch and enjoy the trailer below!A comedy based on Will Forte's bumbling secret agent named MacGruber seen on "Saturday Night Live" whose lack of skill and abundance of personal problems serve as a detriment to him and those around him.
MacGruber is directed by fellow SNL star Jorma Taccone, who hasn't directed any feature films before this, but has directed numerous skits and digital shorts for "Saturday Night Live" over the years. The screenplay was co-written by Will Forte, Jorma Taccone, and John Solomon, another veteran SNL writer. Universal is bringing MacGruber to theaters everywhere starting on April 23rd. Anyone planning on seeing it now?
