'Johnny English Strikes Again' Trailer: Rowan Atkinson Is Doing What He Does Best

You've never met a man like Johnny English before. Well, that's not technically true, you've met him two times before, in 2003's Johnny English and 2011's Johnny English Reborn. But every time, the bumbling British spy played by Rowan Atkinson keeps surprising you with how wild his antics get. So when Johnny English Strikes Again, you better be prepared for even a crazier, wackier ride.

Johnny English Strikes Again Trailer

The James Bond spoof has taken on a life of its own, as Johnny English Strikes Again brings the accidental secret agent back for round three. The new official trailer for the British comedy film is fairly brief, but Atkinson's comedy mettle shines through, as he gets into more shenanigans in this one-minute trailer than you could expect.

In a piece of meta-casting, Johnny English Strikes Again features a real-life Bond Girl Olga Kurylenko as Johnny's new femme fatale. I'd like to believe that this movie takes place in the same universe as the 007 franchise, and that Kurylenko's character is truly in awe of Johnny English precisely because he's such a far cry from the dapper (and in Daniel Craig's case, brooding) Bond. But when she declares that Johnny English is unlike any man she's met before, she probably hasn't seen him wreck half of London while under the influence of a virtual-reality game.

Directed by David Kerr and written by William DaviesJohnny English Strikes Again stars Rowan Atkinson, Olga Kurylenko, Ben Miller, Emma ThompsonJake LacyMiranda HennessyTuncay Gunes, and David Mumeni.
