Met with mixed reviews in the States, MacGruber hits cinemas in the UK on June 18. A feature film adaptation of a popular reacurring Saturday Night Live sketch, the action-comedy boasts a crop of talent including a rather, let's say 'rubenesque' Val Kilmer, Kristen Wiig, Will Forte and Powers Boothe. Directed by Jorma Taccone, MacGruber marks his feature debut after being confined to television since the dawn of his career.
MacGruber joins many other movies based on the hit American sketch show, some being epic failures, and some being great, including Wayne's World, Coneheads and The Blues Brothers.
Today we bring you some pretty funny trailers for the film in a choice of two colours: red and green. Well, that's because one is 'clean' and the other is uncensored. If you're old enough to see the film anyway, check out the red band for a more authentic taste of what's to come. But, if you're not old enough, watch it anyway!
SYNOPSIS: In the 10 years since his fiancee was killed, special op MacGruber has sworn off a life of fighting crime with his bare hands. But when he learns that his country needs him to find a nuclear warhead that's been stolen by his sworn enemy, Dieter Von Cunth (Kilmer), MacGruber figures he's the only one tough enough for the job.
Assembling an elite team of experts—Lt. Dixon Piper (Ryan Phillippe) and Vicki St. Elmo (Wiig)—MacGruber will navigate an army of assassins to hunt down Cunth and bring him to justice. His methods may be unorthodox. His crime scenes may get messy. But if you want the world saved right, you call in MacGruber.
