Melissa McCarthy Tries Not to Let You Down in Two 'Spy' Trailers
After hearing Melissa McCarthy is in early talks to take a role in the reboot of Ghostbusters from director Paul Feig, the first trailer for the duo's latest collaboration has arrived. Spy is an action comedy that sees the star of Tammy and The Heat playing a CIA analyst who decides to step up into the field at a troubling time for the agency when the enemy knows the identity of all their agents. Enter Susan Cooper, who gets a few different identities in order to infiltrate an arms deal. And it's the secret identities where McCarthy gets to play the kind of characters we're a little sick of her playing. There's some amusing moments here, and there's Jude Law, Rose Byrne and Jason Statham to spice things up, but I'm on the fence. Watch it!
Here's the red band trailer for Paul Feig's Spy, originally from Yahoo:
And here's the slightly different green band trailer for the comedy as well:
Spy (formerly known as Susan Cooper) is written and directed by Paul Feig (Bridesmaids, The Heat). Susan Cooper (Melissa McCarthy) is an unassuming, deskbound CIA analyst, and the unsung hero behind the Agency's most dangerous missions. But when her partner (Jude Law) 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. Jason Statham, Allison Janney, Bobby Cannavale, Peter Serafinowicz and Rose Byrne also star in the film 20th Century Fox releases this summer on May 22nd. Anyone interested?

I've gotten a bit tired of her playing the same type of character but this was hilarious. It's funny to think only a few years ago she was playing Sookie on Gilmore Girls. Don't ask me how I know that. haha

Adding this to my "Must see-list".

I feel bad for the real actors in this movie. I assume they have some dark secret they didnt want to get out and were thus forced to be in this shit looking movie.

Looks great, too bad the main 'star' of this film will ruin it. The beginning with Law was funny, I just cannot stand McCarthy. Like everyone else is saying, she plays the same role in each movie, I'll wait till RedBox has a free rental on this one.

She's so out of breath, it's hilarious.

More and more convinced McCarthy might be Tyler Perry in disguise.

Doesn't look too bad. The Three Stooges did the same act in every show, so get over the "one trick pony" hate.

So... so painful this looks. No, just say no.
