Johnny English Reborn trailer online

JohnnyEnglish.jpgHearing about a Johnny English sequel I was rather disappointed, of all the things that the great Rowan Atkinson could have done this was the second least interesting for me, the least being another Bean film. However watching the trailer for the film, entitled Johnny English Reborn, I was rather surprised at how good it was.

There's a strong cast and a great sense of what other films it's taking off, particularly the Bond films, and that's something you see through the whole trailer from the music to the props. I do kind of like it, but I just don't see the entire film holding up to that level.

So while Johnny English Reborn looked not too bad from the trailer, the usual slapstick moments are appearing that are all too predictable, although one thing that Rowan Atkinson has always had over other comedians is a great sense of timing, and that's apparent with the chair scene, just how long does that stretch out?

I noticed the trailer through Latino Review who also carry a blurb for the film:

Rowan Atkinson returns to the role of the accidental secret agent who doesn't know fear or danger in the comedy spy-thriller Johnny English Reborn. In his latest adventure, the most unlikely intelligence officer in Her Majesty's Secret Service must stop a group of international assassins before they eliminate a world leader and cause global chaos.

In the years since MI7's top spy vanished off the grid, he has been honing his unique skills in a remote region of Asia. But when his agency superiors learn of an attempt against the Chinese premier's life, they must hunt down the highly unorthodox agent. Now that the world needs him once again, Johnny English is back in action.

With one shot at redemption, he must employ the latest in hi-tech gadgets to unravel a web of conspiracy that runs throughout the KGB, CIA and even MI-7. With mere days until a heads of state conference, one man must use every trick in his playbook to protect us all. For Johnny English, disaster may be an option, but failure never is.

Now, onto the trailer, have an objective look and see what you think about the new Johnny English film. Hey, it also stars a couple of stars who have been in Bond films too, Rosamund Pike, Pierce Brosnan, Dominic West, Gillian Anderson and Richard Schiff.
