Melissa McCarthy is incredibly funny, and she is the crown jewel of every Paul Feig film she stars in. Following the success of Bridesmaids and Heat comes Spy, an action-comedy spy film that sees the comedian go from CIA desk analyst to a full-fledged highly untrained spy. We have already seen one trailer for the film, and now Fox has released the second one.
McCarthy play the unknown spy who will be trained by Jude Law, a clean cut suave spy; and Jason Statham, a dark and brooding spy who does whatever it takes to get the job done. Rose Byrne will play the international criminal who knows the identity of every spy in the CIA. Hit the jump to check out the new trailer.
Here is a synopsis for the movie:
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 (Jason Statham) is compromised, she volunteers to go deep undercover to infiltrate the world of a deadly arms dealer, and prevent a global disaster.
The film premiered over at the South by Southwest Film Festival this year, where it was met with rave reviews. It’s clear that McCarthy is at her best when she is working with Feig. But critics who saw it also cited Statham as being one of the funniest people in the film, which is completely unexpected given the actor’s action-packed filmography, including the Expendables movies, the Transporter movies, the Crank movies, The Italian Job, Safe, The Bank Job, Killer Elite, The Mechanic, and most recently, Furious 7.
Spy also stars Bobby Cannavale, Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, Peter Serafinowicz, Miranda Hart, Allison Janney, and Morena Baccarin.
