Impressive Red Band Trailer for Will Forte's MacGruber Movie
Universal has just debuted the official trailer for MacGruber starring Will Forte, Ryan Phillippe, Kristen Wiig, Bill Hader, and Val Kilmer as the bad guy! The trailer can be seen over at IAmRogue.com and below. Believe it or not, I actually think this looks pretty damn good. I'm not a big fan of SNL humor anymore (and some of the jokes just didn't hit with me at all), but this at least looks like it was shot beautifully. And I hate to say it, but the explosions look pretty good, too. I'm impressed and will probably see this in theaters. And I must say I'm very happy that they decided to make this R-rated. Anyway, watch and enjoy the trailer below!
Watch the red band trailer for MacGruber:
A comedy based on Will Forte's bumbling secret agent named MacGruber seen on "Saturday Night Live" whose lack of skill and abundance of personal problems serve as a detriment to him and those around him.
MacGruber is directed by fellow SNL star Jorma Taccone, who hasn't directed any feature films before this, but has directed numerous skits and digital shorts for "Saturday Night Live" over the years. The screenplay was co-written by Will Forte, Jorma Taccone, and John Solomon, another veteran SNL writer. Universal is bringing MacGruber to theaters everywhere starting on April 23rd. Anyone planning on seeing it now?

Is it just me or was that not funny at all? SNL sucks nowadays, and this trailer doesn't look much better to me.

Yeesh. This looks terrible. Should have remained just a once in a while skit on the show.

MacGruber what a load of shit, the gags in this movie are shit, it just Lame.

Rental. Not worth 10 bucks. Forte sucks, but Wiig is pretty good and I really miss Val Kilmer so I'll probably see it on video.

Well it's not supposed to highbrow or anything. this looks hilarious! dumb-funny? very, but look what it's based on. Any movie that uses the upper deck in it is just plain funny.

oh val kilmer, you need to lose a few... a lot of pounds, and make a good movie again....pleaaassseeeeeee.

This looks like utter trash. It looks phenomenally bad. It looks like they set the bar as low as it could go and then challenged themselves to find a way to sneak under it. If I could pay $20 to make this movie lose $10 I would.

Oooooh for anyone who thinks this movie takes itself even slightly seriously, you need to remember, Ladies Man, Night at the Roxbury, and other such SNL made movies that despite ourselves, make us laugh silly. This is gonna be a good comedy, not Hangover good, but good nonetheless.

Wow, this makes Twilight look good !!!
LORD CREAM on Jan 19, 2010
I only liked the "We got a nuclear bomb to disarm, holy shit...what the fuck is this!?"' Yeah I'll check this out, I need to laugh at something stupid every now and again.
Xerxex on Jan 19, 2010
That was hilarious. Can't wait to see this.
chrishaley on Jan 19, 2010
i was expecting nothing out of this but it looks like it'll have some good laughs. i wouldn't go to the theatre to see it (i usually watch comedies as rentals) but i'll definitely be putting it on my netflix queue.

The joke about the wires was pretty funny.

Looks better then the A team.
filmfan111 on Jan 19, 2010
you guys are crazy, this looks pretty darn good. plus kristen wigg and will forte are hilarious on SNL, they could make a bad sketch funny. I doubt it will be as good as night at the roxbury buuut it could come close.
rblitz7 on Jan 19, 2010
Loosen up! This looks like genuine camp. The scene when he has to defuse the nuclear warhead will get me into the theatre. Plus the test audiences said it is effin hilarious.
Pats on Jan 19, 2010
Man what the fuck happened to Val Kilmer and his career.
Cody on Jan 19, 2010
I thought it was pretty funny. And I hated the MacGruber skits during SNL for the most part. Except for the week Charles Barkley hosted. Agreed that the best joke was the one about the wires. "I'm a three wire guy". Nice. I gave Paul Blart a chance and was pleasantly surprised. So I'd consider giving this one a shot as well.

Up your butt...in your butthole....
Korm on Jan 19, 2010
I think this looks pretty funny. Nothing to put in the comedy classics category or anything, but definitely good for a fun laugh.... Kristin Wiig looks hot!
Conrad on Jan 19, 2010
Jesus this looks terrible.
DukePhoenix on Jan 19, 2010
I was like,"Nah, nope, uh uh." Then the wire thing made me laugh so I think I'll see it now.
arjones on Jan 19, 2010
Props to #9...This movie is just a long SNL tradition in sketches that are funny and can make mindless funny comdies! " Quick MacGruber...there's a nuclear fusion and we only have ten seconds... " " Right Vicky...Did you loose weight? " *Major explosions* end scene! Gimme 90 min. of that and I'll laught til the cows go see Avatar in 3D IMAX!
Lazarus from Sparta!!! DEATHKLOK RULES!!!!!!!!!!!!!! on Jan 19, 2010
i liked the bit about the green wires.........and the "upper-decker".
beavis on Jan 19, 2010
this looks stupid ha I'm totally watching it! and #27 if you think Dethklok Rules check out Mors Principium Est!
DoomCanoe on Jan 19, 2010
"im only a three wire kinda guy" dont care what people say i am gonna go see this movie.
rfjr on Jan 19, 2010
Yay. Another funny SNL sketch (a rarity in itself) gets padded out to feature length with predictable results. OK, the wire thing was funny.
Combaticus on Jan 19, 2010
Why did Val Kilmer get fat? Why? he just don't look right fat
matthew on Jan 19, 2010
His expressions reek of Anchorman... Let's get some original SNL MacGruber. Man, what is this lately - Hollywood Suckfest?
Nick on Jan 20, 2010
I'm in....this will be Will Forte's finest hour!! Fuck all you haters!
jeffrey on Jan 20, 2010

splinter on Jan 20, 2010
As much as i'd love to support this trailer, i don't know Maybe, i need more convincing.
dex on Jan 20, 2010
@12...nothing can make twilight look good. Though this trailer was pretty shitty, the last like 20 seconds was actually pretty funny.
guh on Jan 20, 2010
I laughed. Is that wrong?
Michael Field on Jan 20, 2010
i have no idea what u guys are saying, this looks hilarious! i'll be there opening night! :]
kthizzle on Jan 20, 2010
Will some one please shoot snl and let it die its not funny anymore
th3thirdman on Jan 20, 2010
SNL is definitely still funny. Not as good as it was in the 80s/90s but i still watch every episode the majority of which are still funny. The only problem is Kristen Wiig has to pretty much carry the show on her back but almost every skit she's in is hilarious. Also the guest stars haven't been very willing to commit with the execption of Justin Timberlake.

Released on April 23, filmed in New Mexico.

How could they do that to Macgyver. If they needed to make a movie out of a SNL short they should have picked Natalie Portman. About her life in Harvard when she smoked everyday and cheated all the tests and snorted all the yay.
