The first clip from Chris Morris' terrorist-baiting Four Lions

What This Is Spinal Tap did for heavy metal and Dr Strangelove the Cold War, Chris Morris’ new film Four Lions will apparently do for terrorism. See for yourself with the trailer below.

The project, which makes fun of British Jihadis in the north of England, was originally pitched as a television series but was picked up by Warp Films and Film4 for a feature film release. It details the exploits of Omar, determined to become a soldier to avenge the treatment of Muslims around the world, clueless co-conspirator Waj, white Islamic convert Barry and bomb expert with father issues Faisal.
