Sacha Baron Cohen is the goof in trailer for spy spoof The Brothers Grimsby

After months that were not-so-filled with casting news and denouncements from British officials, The Brothers Grimsby has a premiere date and a red band trailer. The spy spoof, from Sacha Baron Cohen and Louis Leterrier (Now You See Me), stars Cohen as a soccer hooligan who has to help his spy brother (Mark Strong) when the secret agent finds himself in a pinch—which, given the whole stiff upper-lip thing, is probably preventing some kind of nuclear catastrophe.


The teaser-length trailer shows plenty of black-ops action, as Strong’s character drops in and out of increasingly dangerous scenarios. Then the tagline warns us that the only person more dangerous than Strong’s MI6 agent is his idiot brother. Cut to Cohen’s character making sweet love to a woman (Rebel Wilson) in a mattress store, shortly before deciding that he’ll take it. The mattress, that is.

The Brothers Grimsby, which was originally known as Grimsby, also stars Isla Fisher, Penelope Cruz, and Ian McShane, somehow. It premieres March 4, 2016.
