Though he helmed many TV series for the majority of his career, director Paul Feig broke out in a big way in 2011 with the smash hit Bridesmaids. The film not only elevated Feig to an in-demand filmmaker (FOX just signed him to an extended contract to develop R-rated comedies for them), but it put Melissa McCarthy on the comedic actress movie map.
Fast forward to present day as Feig and McCarthy re-team for the action buddy comedy The Heat, which co-stars Sandra Bullock. A green band trailer arrived a couple months ago giving us a first look at some of the punchlines and mayhem to duo would unleash, but today, we have an uncensored international trailer which gives us a better idea as to the R-rated tone this movie will take.
Check it out below, but FYI, the trailer does contain some strong language and as the MPAA likes to say, thematic elements.
The Heat arrives in theaters April 5, 2013.
Written and starring Brit Marling (aka Richard Gere's daughter in Arbitrage), The East premiered last week at the Sundance Film Festival. The film has received some solid reviews as it looks to secure a release date for sometime later this year.
In the meanwhile, the dramatic thriller co-stars Ellen Page, Alexander Skarsgard, Patricia Clarkson and Shiloh Fernandez has released their Sundance trailer, which you can check out below.
The film has a very Anonymous-type feel to it as an operative for an elite P.I. firm becomes the target of group executing covert attacks upon major corporations.
The East is one of the last films produced by the late Tony Scott.
For all those wondering if the flying monkey seen in previous trailers for Sam Raimi and Disney's Oz The Great and Powerful talks, well, this latest promo answers that question for you.
Along with hearing the monkey speak (Zach Braff is providing the voice), we also get a brief introduction to the main characters in the film portrayed by James Franco, Mila Kunis, Rachel Weisz and Michelle Williams, along with some additional new footage.
There's certainly a lot of anticipation and curiosity surrounding this film. Does hearing the flying monkey speak turn you off from watching this movie?
Oz The Great and Powerful arrives in theaters March 8.
