Sony released the first trailer for the Sacha Baron Cohen spy comedy “The Brothers Grimsby” on Friday.

The trailer opens with a superspy, played by Mark Strong, going on a POV rampage to take down a den of criminals. We then cut to the spy’s brother (Cohen) in the throes of passion with his girlfriend (Rebel Wilson) in a very public setting.
