If You Can Sit Through This Brothers Grimsby Trailer, Sacha Baron Cohen Will Owe You $100

Trailer FrenzyA special place to find the newest trailers for movies and TV shows you're craving.

Not saying that Sacha Baron Cohen will actually pay you $100 if you can watch this trailer for his new spy-fi comedy all the way through. Just that he will owe you $100. Be warned: The trailer really goes off the rails in the last 20 seconds or so.

Seriously, this could actually have been a super-funny movie. Sacha Baron Cohen and Mark Strong are mega-talented blokes. This movie has an incredible cast overall. The writers include Phil Johnston (Wreck-It Ralph) and Peter Baynham (Alan Partridge). But if they put the best jokes in the trailer—as is usually the case—then I can’t even stand to think what the worst jokes in the movie are.

I think the issue is going to be that this will be something people here in the UK will really get and enjoy just for all the references to the UK lower classes but will bomb overseas.

Basically it’ll be why US remakes of British Sitcoms don’t work in that they try to copy and paste jokes designed for the UK to a foreign audience.

The trailer for it they played before Spectre got a lot of laughs in the cinema where I was.
