After yesterday’s enjoyable red band trailer for MacGruber, Yahoo! Movies has posted the green band trailer for the film and it’s pretty fun in its own right.  Yes, it does redo some of the jokes from the red band with the swearing cut out, and it also avoids the villain’s name (Deiter von Cunth), but there are some new jokes and they work pretty well.  It’s surprising how the dread I felt when the project has slowly transformed into enthusiasm for the comedy.  It’s even more surprising when you consider that the character’s exploits provide minute-long running gags throughout an episode of SNL rather than just one solid sketch.  Hopefully, this film will be surprisingly great and not a revelation that, “Yeah, you should have just held on to that feeling of dread.”

Directed by Jorma Taccone, MacGruber stars Will Forte, Kristen Wiig, Ryan Phillippe, and Val Kilmer.  Check out the trailer after the jump along with a brief synopsis.  MacGruber hits theaters on April 23rd.

For those just tuning in, here’s a brief synopsis:

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 the 10 years since his fiancee 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 that’s been stolen by his sworn enemy, Dieter Von Cunth, MacGruber figures he’s the only one tough enough for the job. Assembling an elite team of experts — Lt. Dixon Piper and Vicki St. Elmo — 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.
