Spy Review

11 hours ago | | See recent TheMovieBit news »

There’s a secret rhythm and chemistry to great director-actor pairings. More often showcased with male directors and actors from Tim Burton and Johnny Depp, to Scorsese and De Niro, that unique relationship can be priceless when it comes to the onscreen magic it inspires. Third time out, writer/director Paul Feig knows how to get the best out of Melissa McCarthy and it’s a collaboration that is getting stronger and funnier as they go.  With Spy they have delivered a laugh-out-loud hilarious comedy that blends humour and action in a gorgeously spiky Bond inspired cocktail. McCarthy plays Susan Cooper, a CIA operative who has found herself behind a desk for most of her career as the eyes and ears for superspy Bradley Fine (played by Jude Law). She has been in his earpiece on every mission but when the identities of all of the CIA’s top operatives »

Thn attend ‘Spy’ London premiere

28 May 2015 12:04 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The amazing Melissa McCarthy knows how to strut Leicester Square’s red carpet. Her success in Bridesmaids has brought her critical acclaim as an actress to watch out for. Yet she’s struggled to find the right script, unable to show her complete range. The plot of the film is simple: A desk-bound CIA analyst volunteers to go undercover to infiltrate the world of a deadly arms dealer, and prevent diabolical global disaster.

Spy has given her the opportunity to accentuate her action as well as her words, and provides hope that McCarthy is indeed a force to be reckoned with. Whilst promoting her latest film Spy, her latest collaboration with director Paul Feig, McCarthy attended the star-studded premiere held in London’s prestigious Leicester Square.

McCarthy was as amiable in the flesh as she is on the screen. “It was a big risk to take on this kind of genre, »

Atlanta Readers: Win Passes to See Spy

28 May 2015 10:40 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

When Melissa McCarthy teams up with director Paul Feig (Bridesmaids, The Heat), she fires on all cylinder, and judging by the positive word out of SXSW, their latest collaboration, Spy, continues that trend. McCarthy plays a CIA analyst who volunteers to goes into the field after all of the agents are compromised by a security breach. I’ve dug the trailers for the film, and Jason Statham, who plays a sidelined spy, is reportedly hilarious in his supporting role. Here’s hoping that we’ve got another great summer comedy heading our way. I’m pleased to announce we’re giving away 30 admit-two passes for the Atlanta screening of Spy. To enter for a chance to see the movie early and for free, send an e-mail to with the subject line “Spy”.  The screening is on Tuesday, June 2nd @ 7:30pm at Landmark Midtown, so don »

Sherlock Holmes 3 may or may not be happening, says Jude Law

28 May 2015 2:57 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

If you thought the wait for new episodes of Sherlock was bad, spare a thought for those poor souls still holding out hope for Guy Ritchie's long-delayed Sherlock Holmes 3.

Ever since Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows came out in 2011, a sequel has been both widely rumoured and expected, with both Jude Law and Robert Downey Jr confirming as much last year.

But when Digital Spy asked Law how the sequel was progressing, his response was a weary "I don't know". He added: "There is apparently still a will [to do it], there is a script being written, but I'm not sure."

So while it's by no means a straight-out denial, the fact that Law's still none the wiser suggests Sherlock series 4 might be on our screens before Sherlock Holmes 3 even enters production.

Producer Dan Lin confirmed in 2013 that Iron Man 3 screenwriter Drew Pearce was working on the script for Sherlock Holmes 3, »

‘Spy’s’ Jason Statham: ‘Paul Feig Is the Scorsese of Comedy Films’

27 May 2015 11:49 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Melissa McCarthy and her international cohorts landed in London’s Leicester Square for the world premiere of “Spy.” The crowd seemed most lively for local heroes Jason Statham and Jude Law, who got top billing with McCarthy on the posters plastered around the square. “It’s good to be home,” Statham said.

McCarthy told the crowd and the Yahoo livestream that audiences were going to see the action star “in a whole different light,” tackling comedy as a surly agent named Rick Ford. “You never know what you’re getting into with a comedy,” Statham said. But it helps to have a great director. “Paul Feig is the Scorsese of comedy films,” he proclaimed.

Statham also approved his leading lady’s action chops. “(Melissa) does one of the best fight sequences I’ve ever seen,” he said of a scene in a kitchen. “You never know what you could do with a bread roll. »

Miranda Hart plays down Generation Game rumours: "We are not doing it right now"

27 May 2015 9:37 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

It's sad news for Miranda Hart fans, as the actress and comedian revealed she won't be hosting a Generation Game reboot anytime soon.

While Hart revealed she had spoken to the BBC about the show, she said that the story "got massively blown out of order".

Speaking to BBC News about her negotiations with the broadcaster, Hart said: "It was literally an informal chat with the BBC.

"We talked about it and whether the format would work for a modern audience - but that is literally all it was, just a chat, nothing more."

Hart added: "It got massively blown out of order in the press and, no, we are not doing it right now."

The classic game show, which has previously been presented by the likes of Sir Bruce Forsyth, Larry Grayson and Jim Davidson, was reported to be returning last year.

The Miranda star was previously rumoured to »

Melissa McCarthy is definitely shaken and stirred in teaser for new comedy Spy

26 May 2015 11:53 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Melissa McCarthy is definitely shaken, and also a bit stirred, in a new teaser for the upcoming Paul Feig comedy Spy.

The espionage comedy casts McCarthy as CIA analyst Susan Cooper, who has to go into the field for the very first time when her suave partner Bradley Fine (Jude Law) goes missing.

The CIA don't have much faith in Susan, especially since top agent Rick Ford (Jason Statham) thinks she looks more like "Santa Claus's f**king wife" than a field operative.

Nonetheless, Susan is the agency's only hope in bringing down the dangerous arms dealer Rayna Boyanov (Rose Byrne).

The project reunites McCarthy with her Bridesmaids and The Heat director Paul Feig, with the pair next teaming up for Ghostbusters.

Spy opens on June 5 in the Us and the UK. Watch a full-length trailer below: »

2016 Oscar Predictions: Best Supporting Actor

25 May 2015 11:30 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Quentin Tarantino has led Christoph Waltz to two Oscars in this category, but Waltz is absent from the director's latest, "The Hateful Eight." That film boasts a whopping seven potential contenders in this category (only of the noted eight is a woman, which could get Jennifer Jason Leigh a nod in the supporting actress race). Kurt Russell, Bruce Dern and Samuel L. Jackson seem like they have the showiest parts, putting them in contention amidst a seemingly endless list of other contenders: Seth Rogen and Jeff Daniels ("Steve Jobs"), Benedict Cumberbatch and Kevin Bacon ("Black Mass"), Tom Hardy ("The Revenant"), Alan Alda ("Bridge of Spies"), Bradley Cooper ("Joy"), Steve Carell ("Freeheld"), Dominic West and Jude Law ("Genius") and Mr. Waltz himself ("Tulip Fever"). We truly could go on and on... It will also be interesting to see how many nominees from last year pop up here. Beyond the noted »

Movie Review – Spy (2015)

22 May 2015 8:38 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Spy, 2015.

Written and Directed by Paul Feig.

Starring Melissa McCarthy, Rose Byrne, Jason Statham, Jude Law, Bobby Cannavale and Morena Baccarin.


A desk-bound CIA analyst volunteers to go undercover to infiltrate the world of a deadly arms dealer, and prevent diabolical global disaster.

Martin Scorsese has Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert DeNiro, Tim Burton has Johnny Depp, and Paul Feig has Melissa McCarthy. Some actor/director combinations fit like a glove, and for the third straight outing (Bridesmaids and The Heat) we have another success with Spy.

Unexpectedly, there is also an admirable amount of unexplored range channeled from Melissa McCarthy, not portraying the sassy, loudmouthed, obscene character right out of the gate that we have grown accustomed to. Instead, she plays Susan Cooper, a CIA field operative assistant of 10 years with low self-esteem that decides to jump into the heart of the action when her good friend Bradley Fine »

The rise of Alicia Vikander

22 May 2015 6:15 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

2015 has undoubtedly been Alicia Vikander’s breakthrough year with fantastic lead parts in the thought provoking sci-fi thriller Ex Machina and the harrowing World War I drama Testament Of Youth, which is now available digitally and will arrive on Blu-ray and DVD from 25th May. However, this rise to the fore is by no means out of the blue for Vikander, who showed promise as a leading actress in A Royal Affair in 2012 and then went on to hold her own opposite the likes of Keira Knightley in Anna Karenina and Benedict Cumberbatch in The Fifth Estate. In this feature we take a look at the very best of Alicia Vikander.

Anna Karenina is a bold, theatrical adaptation of Leo Tolstoy’s timeless novel by Academy Award winner Tom Stoppard. The film was the third collaboration of Academy Award nominee Keira Knightley with acclaimed director Joe Wright, but »

Spy: Jason Statham Steals the Show in 5 New Clips

20 May 2015 6:29 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

20th Century Fox has released five new Spy clips for Paul Feig's (Bridesmaids, The Heat) upcoming espionage comedy. The film stars Melissa McCarthy as a desk-bound CIA agent who must go into the field for the first time when the identity of the agency's premiere assets are compromised. Jason Statham, who co-stars in the film as rugged top agent Rick Ford, is a consistently underrated performer who's long been relegated to shoot 'em up action films. Don't get me wrong, I love those movies, but I'm excited to see Statham finally get a chance to flex his comedy skills. If these clips are any indication, he's going to kill it. While he's definitely still playing to type as the brawny badass, Statham's bringing a self-awareness and utterly crass delivery to the character. Perri singled Statham out as a one of Spy's highlights in her SXSW review, and early »
