Watch Daniel Kaluuya In Trailer For James Bond Spoof "Johnny English"

Never really been much of a Rowan Atkinson fan. Just not my kind of humor. I can only tolerate him in doses. I didn't see the first Johnny English movie, which was released stateside in 2003; and while it managed just over $28 million in US box office, it raked in over $130 million internationally. So, clearly there's an audience out there for this 007 spoof - particularly in Europe, which shouldn't be a big surprise.

Never really been much of a Rowan Atkinson fan. Just not my kind of humor. I can only tolerate him in doses. I didn't see the first Johnny English movie, which was released stateside in 2003; and while it managed just over $28 million in US box office, it raked in over $130 million internationally. So, clearly there's an audience out there for this 007 spoof - particularly in Europe, which shouldn't be a big surprise.

But the only reason why I mention this sequel, titled Johnny English Reborn, is because Daniel Kaluuya (a 2009 S&A and Screen International UK star of tomorrow) co-stars as Atkinson's (English's) side-kick Tucker.

He doesn't feature much in the trailer below (a couple of shots, but he doesn't say anything in them), though I'm told his role is much larger than the trailer shows... but he's still the sidekick, so don't expect anything more than what that title typically entails.

Johnny English Reborn opens in the UK on October 7th, and in the USA on October 28th.

It's not a film on my "to-see" list, but I might check it out as a rental, if only to see Kaluuya's performance in it.

Here's the trailer:
