Rowan Atkinson is one of the greatest comedians of his generation, presenting a unique blend of bumbling physical comedy along with a cerebral sense of humor that is rarely equaled. Of course, Atkinson is best known as the eccentric man-child Mr. Bean but he has also found success as his dopey super-spy Johnny English. Now Johnny English returns for his third film in director David Kerr‘s Johnny English Strikes Again, currently available on Digital HD and available on Blu-ray/DVD on January 22, 2019. We’re happy to debut an exclusive clip from the Blu-ray’s special features where Atkinson and fellow cast members Ben Miller and Olga Kurylenko discuss one of the film’s action set pieces, a car chase amidst the majestic scenery of Red Rocks in the south of France.
Spy films often features two things — sleek cars and gorgeous locations. This clip highlights just how Johnny English Strikes Again blends these hallmarks of spy films for its own comedic purposes, as Atkinson’s super-spy drives a red vintage Aston Martin in pursuit Kurylenko’s mysterious character in sparkling new electric BMW.
Check out the exclusive clip below with Atkinson, Miller, and the former Bond girl Olga Kurylenko and check out Johnny English Strikes Again, currently on Digital HD and on Blu-ray on January 22, 2019.
