He can make his “balls” look like Ian McKellan but will suck it or let his brother die? It’s lewd, crude opening…. welcome to Grimsby new red band trailer and the world of Sacha Baron Cohen
If the previous trailers haven’t hit the mark for you this new trailer plays on the humour plays on Baron Cohen’s brand of comedy, you might even get “suck my balls” on your gravestone too!
Nobby has everything a man from Grimsby could want 9 children and a girlfriend he loves more than anything (Rebel Wilson). There’s only one thing missing in his life: his little brother, Sebastian (Mark Strong), from whom he was separated as a child. After 28 years of searching, Nobby has finally tracked his brother down in London unaware that he’s an MI6 assassin. After a disastrous reunion in which Nobby accidentally ruins Sebastian’s life and puts them both on the run, they uncover a plot to destroy the world. In order to save humanity, and his brother, Nobby has to embark on a global mission and undertake a complete transformation from lovable idiot to sophisticated secret agent
With Ali G and Borat kicking off things in this trailer might be a reminder why people loved the British comedic actor in the first place. Has the magic gone or after Bruno and The Dictator have fans been hoping he can return to those early good days? The comedy is very subjective, childish but if you are a big fan of the actor this looks like it will deliver the old laughs. Alot of jokes though might be lost on anyone not familiar with UK culture but if you really want to know how low he’ll go there’s even a Bill Cosby joke in there too.
Last night Sacha Baron Cohen appeared on Jimmy Kimmel live , presenting what they are calling a ‘graphic scene’. We see the start of the clip before it cuts away and the sounds of it, a elephant might be involved with Mark Strong the unlucky brother. Going by the trailer humour we don’t want to guess exactly what went down!
Grimsby will be released in UK & Ireland 24th February 2016 (USA 11th March) co-starring Isla Fisher, Ian McShane and Gabourey Sidibe.
