Second ‘Spy’ Trailer Is Ready for Action [106 Screenshots]

Set to release in theaters this June, I still have my doubts about director Paul Feig’s latest venture, Spy. The latest trailer depicts Melissa McCarthy’s character Susan out in the field going toe-to-toe with some of the film’s antagonists, showing a little different side of her than what we’ve seen in Bridesmaids and The Heat. But is that enough to differentiate her from the other roles we’ve seen her in?

I’m not even cautiously optimistic at this point. From what we’ve seen in every trailer for Spy, the supporting cast is my biggest draw toward the film, but Melissa McCarthy I’m not too sure on. The story is so so in my mind at this moment. It’s different I’ll give it that, but its main draw is a fish out of water story.

I enjoyed Melissa McCarthy in Bridesmaids as a supporting character and I didn’t care much for her role in The Heat. She’s proven to have decent dramatic chops in the sub par St. Vincent, but going back to her comedy roots, I rather disliked Tammy and Identity Thief. What turns me off about Spy is that they continue to make her the bumbling goof falling over cars and unable to ride a scooter, while falling over. It’s unappealing and feeds into my doubts.

Does the world need another Melissa McCarthy movie? Are audiences ready for the actress to portray a wannabe spy?

Here’s the plot synopsis for Spy courtesy of 20th Century Fox:

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.

Directed by Paul Feig, Spy stars Melissa McCarthy, Jason Statham, Rose Byrne, Miranda Hart, Bobby Cannavale, Allison Janney, and Jude Law. This movie will hit theaters on June 5, 2015.
