Arnold Schwarzenegger's A Murder Target In The 'Killing Gunther' Trailer


Arnold Schwarzenegger's latter career has been odd, to say the least. While you'd think he'd still be killin' it in franchise action flicks...since guys like Liam Neeson and Mel Gibson can still do it...his best roles have been low-key dramas such as Maggie and Aftermath. And now his new film, Killing Gunther, is basically a satirical twist on the roles that defined him as an action star.

Killing Gunther is the directorial debut by SNL alum Taran Killam, and he's gathered a motley crew of comedy heavyweights opposite Arnold. He plays Gunther, the world's greatest assassin, who becomes a target of every other hitman in the business because he keeps taking all of the work. Cobie Smulders, Bobby Moynihan, Alison Tolman, Hannah Simone, Aaron Yoo, and Killam himself all take a crack at offing The Governator, who looks like he's having a ball.

I'd rather see Arnold in movies like this than another Terminator, that's for sure, and it feels right for him to be doing stuff like this right now. Have some fun with the legacy, man! Killing Gunther opens October 20th in theaters and VOD.
