I’ve been waiting so long to see a trailer for this movie ever since Arnold Schwarzenegger tweeted about it. And yes, I follow Schwarzenegger on Twitter. I was pretty much raised on his movies. But let’s get back to Killing Gunther.
The movie was written and directed by Saturday Night Live alum, Taran Killam. Killam is an assassin who wants to be the best but in order to do that he needs to kill the actual best assassin, Gunther, played by Arnold Schwarzenegger. Killam gets a group of unconventional assassins together to help him in his mission, played by Hannah Simone (New Girl), Allison Tolman (Downward Dog), Bobby Moynihan (Saturday Night Live), Steve Bacic (Andromeda), and Amir Talai (The Pursuit of Happyness). But they can’t just kill Gunther and expect people to believe them, so a documentary crew follows them around as they keep trying to kill Gunther and fail, much to Gunther’s delight.
It’s pretty much the perfect goofy action movie where it doesn’t take itself seriously and lets you revel in the fun while getting some action sequences.
Killing Gunther will be available to watch on Ultra VOD on September 22 and will be released in select theaters and On Demand, October 10.
