Here’s the official trailer for Spy the new comedy starring Melissa McCarthy, Jude Law and Jason Statham. It’s a typical ‘fish out of water‘ espionage comedy plot with McCarthy in lead comedic role.
Spy, which is just the most imaginative title, rattles along like so:
Susan Cooper is an unassuming, deskbound CIA analyst, and the unsung hero behind the Agency’s most dangerous missions. But when her partner falls off the grid and another top agent is compromised, she volunteers to go deep undercover to infiltrate the world of a deadly arms dealer, and prevent a global disaster.
Spy is directed by Paul Feig the man who is taking over the Ghostbusters remake and judging from this trailer it’s probably a remake I shall leave well alone.
Here’s the official trailer for comedy laugh-fest The Heat, starring Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy.
I have no idea what the actual plot to this movie is except that it’s about the unlikely pairing of two opposites, you know where one is fat and unattractive and the other is slim and good looking, one is lazy and irresponsible and the other is motivated and logical, one plays the by the book while the other tears the book up. Hollywood, why do you continue to spoil us with these fresh, innovative ideas?
I’m not usually a big fan of cooky comedies but for some reason the pairing of Jason Bateman, (Arrested Development, The Change Up) and Melissa McCarthy, (Bridesmaids, Gilmore Girls) has hooked me in and judging from the trailer it feels like a far more violent and action packed version of Planes Trains & Automobiles…you know, with Bateman as Steve Martin and McCarthy as a female John Candy? Have I told you about my theory about The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey being a modern re-working of The Dirty Dozen?
I digress, directed by Seth Gordon, (Horrible Bosses, The King O f Kong), Identity Thief also John Cho, Amanda Peet, Robert Patrick and Morris Chestnut, the plot of which rattles along like so:
Unlimited funds have allowed Diana to live it up near Miami, buying whatever strikes her fancy. There’s only one glitch: The ID she’s using belongs to “Sandy Bigelow Patterson” and that’s an accounts rep who lives halfway across the U.S. With only one week to hunt down the con artist before his world implodes, the real Sandy Bigelow Patterson heads south to bribe, coax and wrangle her the 2,000 miles to Denver, he will discover just how tough it is to get your name back.
