A new red-band trailer has been released for the ridiculous looking over-the-top comedy called The Heat. It stars Melissa McCarthy and Sandra Bullock as a couple of mismatched Boston P.D. detectives that team up to bring down a drug lord. It looks like there will be a few funny parts in the movie, but I'm not overly excited about it. It's definitely not a film I would pay to see in theaters.
Uptight and straight-laced, FBI Special Agent Sarah Ashburn (Sandra Bullock) is a methodical investigator with a reputation for excellence–and hyper-arrogance. Shannon Mullins (Melissa McCarthy), one of Boston P.D.’s “finest,” is foul-mouthed and has a very short fuse, and uses her gut instinct and street smarts to catch the most elusive criminals. Neither has ever had a partner, or a friend for that matter. When these two wildly incompatible law officers join forces to bring down a ruthless drug lord, they become the last thing anyone expected: buddies. From Paul Feig, the director of “Bridesmaids.”
The film also stars Demián Bichir, Marlon Wayans, and Michael Rapaport. The Heat comes out on April 5th 2013. Watch the red-band trailer and let us know if you think it looks like something you'd want to see.
