Official MacGruber Poster Arrives
04.03.10 by BJSprecher
Since MacGruber premiered at the South By Southwest Film Festival in Austin, Texas, any speculation that it might actually be an elaborate hoax and not a real movie has been laid to rest. Now, Relativity Media has released a new theatrical poster for the movie. Unfortunately, even though it's billed as "...the best action-comedy since Beverly Hills Cop," the poster is actually a pretty boring, action movie-style poster that barely hints at the movie being a comedy (we're only giving comedic points to Will Forte's mullet and Kristen Wiig's "sexy" mom jeans).
Based on several short Saturday Night Live sketches that parodied the MacGyver TV series, MacGruber was directed by the sketch's creator, Jorma Taccone, who also co-wrote the script of the movie with Forte and John Solomon. Val Kilmer, Ryan Phillippe, and SNL cast member Maya Rudolph also star, with an appearance by ReelChannel's own Casey Messer, host of Movies & Music and First Fans. Go, Casey!
