Well, this looks fun. The new trailer for Melissa McCarthy’s can’t-miss action comedy, Spy, has hit the Internet and it’s honestly more entertaining than most movies probably ever. The James Bond spoof marks McCarthy’s third collaboration with director Paul Feig, and after the success of Bridesmaids and The Heat, they’re looking like Hollywood’s most invincible tandem.
There is so much to love here, from McCarthy’s deadpan delivery and trademark slapstick brilliance to Jason Statham’s send-up of his brute-action hero persona. Spy premiered at South By Southwest earlier this month, and by all accounts it absolutely slayed. Variety summed up what this trailer confirms: “Melissa McCarthy gets the funniest, most versatile and sustained comic showcase of her movie career in this deliriously entertaining action-comedy.”
