Starring Dave Franco, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Julio Jones, Rob Gronkowski, Colin Kaepernick, Antonio Brown, Rex Ryan, and more, the latest Madden NFL 16 trailer sees Franco and Mintz-Plasse assembling a squad of playmakers to take down an evil boss.

Madden: The Movie celebrates the return of Madden Season with an over-the-top action movie trailer that is sure to get fans fired up for the launch of Madden NFL 16.

Madden NFL 16 releases on August 25 for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, and Xbox 360.
