A restricted trailer has been released for the “Saturday Night Live” based film, MacGruber and it features more violence, more blood, and more Iceman aka Val Kilmer. He stars as Deiter Von Cunth, an elusive bad guy who MacGruber must stop before he destroys the world! MSN Movies, got their hands on the trailer first, but we’ve also got it right here…
The film centers on the MacGyver-esque character MacGruber (Will Forte) and his attempts to stop a criminal from pulling off a massive scheme. Ryan Phillippe plays an army officer named Piper, who unwillingly works with MacGruber to bring down a villain named Cunth, played by Kilmer. The overall story centers on a retired MacGruber living as a monk in Ecuador — until he’s enlisted to fight the evil Cunth, who has a nuclear warhead; the mission is personal because Cunth killed MacGruber’s bride.
It’s really great to see Phillippe in a comedy, that guy always stars in the most depressing films. MacGruber will mark SNL‘s return to the feature film world, because they’ve been out of the game since the early 2000′s. The days of Pat, Superstar, and A Night At The Roxbury are long gone. It will be interesting to see how audiences will react to this brand of comedy being back in theaters.
MacGruber hits theaters on May 23, 2010.
