Rowan Atkinson in First Full Trailer for 'Johnny English Strikes Again'
"That was sooner than I expected." Universal has revealed the first trailer for spy spoof comedy Johnny English Strikes Again, the third movie in the Johnny English series, returning after a seven year hiatus. Rowan Atkinson (who also plays Mr. Bean) is back again as Johnny English, the "man with few skills" and wacky, loser spy who helps save Britain, again. This time, a cyber-attack (yes, indeed) reveals the identity of all active undercover agents in Britain, and English is the only one who can help them get everything back in order. The cast in this includes Emma Thompson, Olga Kurylenko, Ben Miller, Jake Lacy, Adam James, and Miranda Hennessy. There's always room in the cinemas for a new spy spoof, right? Or have we seen enough of these kind of comedies recently? Not sure if this will actually be any good, but why not.
Here's the first trailer (+ poster) for David Kerr's Johnny English Strikes Again, from YouTube:
