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 we have it. Heath Ledgers last work in film in The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus. The film stars Ledger, Johnny Depp, Jude Law, and Colin Farrell.
The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus is a fantastical morality tale, set in the present day. It tells the story of Dr Parnassus and his extraordinary ‘Imaginarium’, a travelling show where members of the audience get an irresistible opportunity to choose between light and joy or darkness and gloom. Blessed with the extraordinary gift of guiding the imaginations of others, Dr Parnassus is cursed with a dark secret. Long ago he made a bet with the devil, Mr Nick, in which he won immortality. Many centuries later, on meeting his one true love, Dr Parnassus made another deal with the devil, trading his immortality for youth, on condition that when his first-born reached its 16th birthday he or she would become the property of Mr Nick. Valentina is now rapidly approaching this ‘coming of age’ milestone and Dr Parnassus is desperate to protect her from her impending fate. Mr Nick arrives to collect but, always keen to make a bet, renegotiates the wager. Now the winner of Valentina will be determined by whoever seduces the first five souls. Enlisting a series of wild, comical and compelling characters in his journey, Dr Parnassus promises his daughter’s hand in marriage to the man that helps him win. In this captivating, explosive and wonderfully imaginative race against time, Dr Parnassus must fight to save his daughter in a never-ending landscape of surreal obstacles – and undo the mistakes of his past once and for all… – IMDb
This looks like a great adventure story with tons of cool imagery and great acting. I can’t wait for this to come out to theaters.
