Making life-saving inventions out of household materials!
Getting in and out of ultra-sticky situations!
The guyâ€™s a freakinâ€™ genius!
Say what you will, but I LOVE the Saturday Night Live “MacGruber” skits, and when I heard they were making a feature-length movie based on those skits, I was totally fine with it.
New red band and green band trailers for the film, which hits theaters on April 23, are now online. Watch them both here below.
The MacGruber skit is a spoof on the 1980’s action television series MacGyver, which starred Richard Dean Anderson as a secret agent known for his non-violent resourceful resolution methods, which were oftentimes over the top. The big joke has always been about what MacGyver could do with a piece of gum and some tape, so MacGruber just takes that to the next level.
The film stars SNL alum Will Forte as MacGruber, with fellow SNL co-star Kristen Wiig as part of his elite team. Ryan Phillippe (Crash) is also on this team, with Powers Boothe, Maya Rudolph, and Vil Kilmer rounding out the cast.
Only one American hero has earned the rank of Green Beret, Navy SEAL and Army Ranger. Just one operative has been awarded 16 purple hearts, 3 Congressional Medals of Honor and 7 presidential medals of bravery. And only one guy is man enough to still sport a mullet. In 2010, Will Forte brings Saturday Night Liveâ€™s clueless soldier of fortune to the big screen in the action comedy MacGruber.
In the 10 years since his fiancÃ©e 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 thatâ€™s been stolen by his sworn enemy, Dieter Von Cunth (Val Kilmer), MacGruber figures heâ€™s the only one tough enough for the job.
Assembling an elite team of expertsâ€”Lt. Dixon Piper (Ryan Phillippe) and Vicki St. Elmo (Kristen Wiig)â€”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.
