A new The Machine trailer for the upcoming action comedy starring Bert Kreischer, Mark Hamill, and Jessica Gabor is out, highlighting some of the wild adventures set to appear in the film.
The Machine is directed by Peter Atencio, with a screenplay written by Kevin Biegel and Scotty Landes. It is inspired by the now iconic 2016 stand-up routine of the same name by Kreischer, in which he recounts inadvertently helping the Russian mafia rob a train while on a college trip to Russia. In the film, Kreischer will play a fictionalized version of himself.
Check out The Machine trailer for the film below:
“Set 23 years after the original story which inspired it, The Machine finds Bert (Bert Kreischer) facing familial crisis and the arrival of his estranged father (Mark Hamill) when the ghost of his booze-soaked past arrives: a murderous mobster (Iva Babić) hellbent on kidnapping Bert back to the motherland to atone for his crimes,” reads the official synopsis for the film. “Together, he and his father must retrace the steps of his younger self (Jimmy Tatro) in the midst of a war between a sociopathic crime family while they attempt to find common ground.”
The Machine is slated to premiere exclusively in movie theaters on May 26, 2023.
