Trailer Watch: Melissa McCarthy Faces Off Against Rose Byrne in New Spot for ‘Spy’

Trailer Watch: Melissa McCarthy Faces Off Against Rose Byrne in New Spot for 'Spy'

A second trailer has been released for Melissa McCarthy’s “Spy,” which earned enthusiastic reviews at SXSW last month. 

McCarthy plays Susan Cooper, a mousy, unassuming CIA analyst who goes out into the field and kicks ass. If our initial peek of Susan in the first trailer focused on who this undercover agent is not (i.e., she certainly won’t ever be confused for Jude Law’s flashy Bond-wannabe or Jason Statham’s blustery, well, Jason Stathamish character), this new spot elaborates on who she is: best friend to even-mousier Miranda Hart, Fashion Police to Rose Byrne’s deliberately cheesy Russian villainess, and definitely not a cat lady.

Allison Janney and Morena Baccarin also co-star. 

Written and directed by Bridesmaids director Paul Feig, Spy opens May 22.
