Every country needs a great spy, here in the UK some may say we have two. In Johnny English Strikes Again, MI7’s greatest is back for one more time. In the first UK Trailer for the third film, Her Majesty requires him to serve the Crown, however, he is a bit of a ‘deadly Tool’.
As promised yesterday after the teaser trailer we now have the full thing. Fans of the previous films will once again be treated his traditional dumbfounded goofy antics. Since we last met Johnny, he’s been a teacher, one desperate to get back in the field.
Check out the trailer…
Like any spy film franchise that’s last as long as Johnny English (15 years), the tools and villains have changed. Johnny must stop criminal hackers revealing the identities of his fellow British spies. And if you know the recent James Bond films, reveals to work out well for those exposed.
The new film does have a very big Bond tone and no wonder, it’s written by Neal Purvis and Robert Wade. They wrote the scripts for Skyfall, Spectre, Casino Royale and they do come with all the Bond type trimmings.
The trailer does showcase Johnny’s teaching life before he attempts to tackle modern technology. This film will all depend on how much you love the character. He daft, a many with very few words even skills and if you want a silly near parody spy film you may just be happy with this!
JOHNNY ENGLISH STRIKES AGAIN is the third installment of the Johnny English comedy series, with Rowan Atkinson returning as the much loved accidental secret agent. The new adventure begins when a cyber-attack reveals the identity of all active undercover agents in Britain, leaving Johnny English as the secret service’s last hope. Called out of retirement, English dives head first into action with the mission to find the mastermind hacker. As a man with few skills and analogue methods, Johnny English must overcome the challenges of modern technology to make this mission a success.
Johnny English Strikes Again is released in UK cinemas on 12th October 2018. The film co-stars Ben Miller, Olga Kurylenko, Emma Thompson, Jake Lacy with David Kerr (Fresh Meat) directing.Powered by Sidelines
