Melissa McCarthy is certainly not afraid to put herself out there. Especially when it comes to her comedies that her director husband Ben Falcone helms.
But in Life of the Party, we get to see something more grounded and refreshing, a newly divorced mother who makes a comeback by joining her daughter (Molly Gordon) in college. Warner Bros. has released the second trailer for the film, and you can check it out below.
The Boss is the new comedy brainchild of Ben Falcone and Melissa McCarthy in which the former is directing and the latter stars as a disgraced media mogul forced to rebuild her reputation from the ground up with the help of her former overworked assistant, who is also a single mother, played by Kristen Bell.
We were recently invited to the film’s press day where we sat down with Falcone and McCarthy, who are married, and Bell to talk about their experience working on the film; parenting; jobs they had and bosses they’ve worked with; the current state of women in comedy; what it was like for the two actors to work together, and more.
Check out here below the top eight things we learned at The Boss press conference.
Before we get to see Melissa McCarthy on the big screen in Paul Feig’s much-talked-about remake of Ghostbusters, the comedic actress will be The Boss, a new comedy coming next year from Universal Pictures.
Check out the first poster and images for The Boss here below, along with a 15-second sneak peek of the upcoming trailer.
