A few weeks ago, Marvel Studios hit Jimmy Kimmel Live with the first trailer for Captain America: Civil War. Shortly afterward, Warner Bros. followed suit with the new trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Now it’s Sony’s turn, and they’ve brought… The Brothers Grimsby?
The action-comedy directed by Louis Leterrier stars Sacha Baron Cohen and Mark Strong as brothers separated at childhood. Sebastian (Strong) grew to be an elite MI6 agent, while Nobby (Baron Cohen) became a small-town soccer hooligan. When Nobby finally tracks down Sebastian, he accidentally sets off a chain of events that send the brothers on the run. Watch The Brothers Grimsby trailer after the jump.
Baron Cohen dropped by Jimmy Kimmel Live in character as Borat to present the first The Brothers Grimsby trailer. He gets in a few solid Donald Trump digs while he’s at it.
Or if you’d rather skip all the Borat shenanigans and get straight to the Nobby shenanigans, here’s the Brothers Grimsby trailer by itself.
Aside from a small cameo in Anchorman 2, Baron Cohen hasn’t been seen on the big screen since 2012’s The Dictator and Les Misérables. But he’ll be back in full force next year. The Brothers Grimsby was originally slated for a summer 2015, but got pushed back, perhaps in an effort to avoid competing with the onslaught of Bond riffs we got this year. (One of which, Kingsman, even co-starred Strong.) Besides The Brothers Grimsby, he’s also got Alice Through the Looking Glass coming in May.
The Brothers Grimsby opens March 11, 2016.

MI6’s top assassin (Mark Strong) has a brother. Unfortunately for him, he’s an English football hooligan (Sacha Baron Cohen) from the town of Grimsby.
Nobby has everything a man from the poor English fishing town of Grimsby could want – 9 children and the most attractive girlfriend in northern England (Rebel Wilson). There’s only one thing missing in his life: his little brother, Sebastian. After they were adopted by different families as children, Nobby spent 28 years searching for him. Upon hearing of his location, Nobby sets off to reunite with his brother, unaware that not only is his brother an MI6 agent, but he’s just uncovered a plot that puts the world in danger. On the run and wrongfully accused, Sebastian realizes that if he is going to save the world, he will need the help of its biggest idiot.
