Melissa McCarthy and director Paul Feig (The Heat, Bridesmaids) are a match made in blockbuster heaven, as you can see
from this trailer for their upcoming action comedy, Spy. McCarthy stars as Susan, a FBI analyst who is disappointed
that her days spent working have resulted in being relegated
to a desk job. It's not fair that Bradley
Fine (Jude Law) gets to go out and fight the bad guys, play with cool
gadgets, and wear sweet suits! Susan finally gets her chance at the big time
when a nuke-wielding terrorist named Reyna (Rose Byrne) appears
on the scene.

Jason Statham and his stubbly scalp co-star as a grumbly spy
whose identity is compromised, and the awesome Allison Janney plays a typically
badass CIA agent. And, let's never forget that Byrne is a comedy ringer, as we
learned from her performances in Neighbors
and Bridesmaids

The movie premiered at South by Southwest to rave reviews,
and as its June premiere gets closer and closer, well, it's just getting harder
to wait. Although Susan is trussed up in cat lady gear out the wazoo, it's
clear that she gets a chance to dress up, look fierce, and kick some serious
ass.

Spy opens on June
5.
