Jason Statham has no love for Cirque du Soleil in a clip from Melissa McCarthy's Spy

1 May 2015 3:46 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Jason Statham is one angry international intelligence agent in an outrageous scene from Melissa McCarthy's new comedy Spy.

Bridesmaids and The Heat director Paul Feig's newest movie casts McCarthy as a CIA officer working on her first-ever field mission.

Statham is the experienced but comprised fellow CIA agent Rick Ford, who makes his objections to Susan Cooper's (McCarthy) field mission very clear in a new clip.

"We have to stop the sale of a nuclear weapon – they send in someone who looks like Santa Claus's f**king wife," Rick angrily complains.

In fact, Rick thinks Susan's mission could be an even bigger disaster than the time he had to join Cirque du Soleil for a CIA plot.

Spy follows Susan Cooper as she carries out a daring plot to foil arms dealer Rayna Boyanov (Rose Byrne) from closing an illegal deal.

Paul Feig Explains Why He’s Making a Play-Doh Movie

30 April 2015 2:44 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Earlier this month, some rather strange-but-true news broke in the form of a Play-Doh movie being developed at 20th Century Fox. Yes, a movie about the smelly clay that you played with as a kid is in the works. Moreover, it has Bridesmaids and The Heat helmer Paul Feig set to possibly direct. You may be thinking, “Why in the world would someone like Paul Feig want to make a Play-Doh movie?” Well luckily, when Steve caught up with Feig at CinemaCon in anticipation of his upcoming comedy Spy, the filmmaker obliged and explained exactly why he sparked to the idea: “We’re moving forward [with the film]… My company was approached by Hasbro with this property and at first I was like, ‘How do you make a Play-Doh movie?’ and then I was like, ‘Wait, it’s colored clay. It’s Claymation!’ So then we had an idea that we really liked »

Cecily Strong Joining Melissa McCarthy in 'Michelle Darnell' Comedy

29 April 2015 6:53 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

After bringing comedy to the White House Correspondents' Dinner last week, "Saturday Night Live" cast member Cecily Strong is getting ready to start a feature film career as well. The comedienne has a role in the indie comedy The Bronze, but now she's lined up her first studio feature film comedy as Deadline reports Strong is taking a role in Michelle Darnell, the next comedy led by The Heat and Bridesmaids star Melissa McCarthy. As of now there's no indication as to what role Strong has in the film, but her presence is enough to have some hope that this comedy actually turns out better than McCarthy's Tammy. There have been rumblings that Strong may also end up having a role in the all-female Ghostbusters reboot from director Paul Feig, and working with one of the films four leads (McCarthy) certainly makes that more likely, but we'll see what happens on that front. »

Jason Statham Tells Us Why He's A Real Spy In New Clip From Spy

23 April 2015 2:54 PM, PDT | | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Melissa McCarthy's latest team up, Spy, with her Bridesmaids and The Heat director Paul Feig may be more of the same from the actress, but she does have a great cast of straight men, and women, around her that you wouldn't necessarily peg as having comedy chops. Case in point is Jason Statham, who in the clip below plays up his hard man persona to hilarious effect. Released: June 5th Synopsis: A desk-bound CIA analyst volunteers to go undercover to infiltrate the world of a deadly arms dealer, and prevent diabolical global disaster. »

Jim Gianopulos Honored by Will Rogers Foundation, Paul Feig

23 April 2015 6:40 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Thanks to Paul Feig, wackiness abounded Wednesday night at Las Vegas’ CinemaCon as the Will Rogers Motion Picture Pioneers Foundation honored Jim Gianopulos, chairman and CEO of 20th Century Fox, with its Pioneer of the Year honor.

“I love Jim Gianopulos deeply and non-erotically,” Feig said. “Anywhere you go, you hear ‘Jim’s the best.'”

Feig dug up a 2-year-old video that was played for Fox employees at a town hall meeting showing Gianopulos botching an array of other jobs at the studio — security gate guard, gardener, sound mixer and human resources director dealing with the Gina and Beth characters from Feig’s movie “The Heat.”

The real Gina and Beth — Jamie Denbo and Jessica Chaffin — weren’t done by a long shot, commandeering the podium from Feig for an X-rated 10 minutes that scored with the audience. “Is that your wife? You never talk about her,” Denbo told Gianopulos. »

CinemaCon: Fox Chief Jim Gianopulos Feted at Will Rogers Pioneer Dinner

Fox chairman and CEO Jim Gianopulos was honored with the 2015 Pioneer of the Year award in Las Vegas on Wednesday night during an event infused with a large dose of humor. Director Paul Feig, whose home is Fox and directed the studio's upcoming comedy Spy, enlisted The Heat actresses Jamie Denbo and Jessica Chaffin, who showed up in character as Gina and Beth. The duo helped fete Gianopulos with an impromptu gag that included poking fun at how News Corp. chief Rupert Murdoch discovered Gianopulos while cruising off the coast of Greece (Gianopulos, of Greek origin, keeps a summer

The Female Ghostbusters Movie Has A Giant Budget

21 April 2015 1:13 PM, PDT | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Good news, Ghostbusters fans! Director Paul Feig scored millions for the upcoming reboot. The all-female movie was greenlit for a reported $154 million budget, despite new Sony executive.s plans to tighten movie budgets. This could mean bigger-budget special effects and (possible) fantastic CGI for the anticipated film. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Sony.s new film studio chief Tom Rothman -- who was appointed to the new role in February -- has reportedly approved a $154 million budget just months after news broke that the all female reboot was in the works. This is a huge victory for the entire cast, crew and especially the director of the upcoming comedy, Paul Feig, despite reports of his concessions to reduce the budget of the project. THR also reports that the director had to make changes to the script in order to reduce the budget to the workable $154 million. The Heat director's take »

Paul Feig on ‘Ghostbusters,’ ‘Spy’ and His Female-Centric Hollywood

14 April 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Paul Feig is Hollywood’s most popular ladies’ man.

That’s not to suggest he’s a lothario or creepy man-on-the-make. It’s just that in his job as a top movie director, he arguably has done more in recent years than anyone else in the business to enable actresses to play the kinds of delicious characters that traditionally had been the domain of their male counterparts. There’s an encouraging shift under way at the box office with such female-driven hits as “Fifty Shades of Grey,” “Cinderella,” “Insurgent” and “Maleficent” burning up the bigscreen. And Feig, who has demonstrated a fondness for funny women, has played a central role part in helping to create and maintain that momentum, with a resume of blockbuster comedies.

The bawdy “Bridesmaids,” starring Kirsten Wiig and breakout star Melissa McCarthy, took in $288 million worldwide, and garnered two Oscar nominations, for supporting actress (McCarthy) and »

Spy Clip Allows Rose Byrne To Be Very Rude To Melissa McCarthy

8 April 2015 10:36 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

A regular part of the modern Melissa McCarthy movie is the scene, or more likely long string of scenes, where somebody is rude to her in a dismissive, often misogynist fashion. It’s almost the point of the films, really, to take all of that abuse and then to undermine it.

This clip from Spy shows the same thing happening again. Rose Byrne’s character stereotypes and shrugs off the very capable spy, Susan Cooper, as played by McCarthy.

Maybe there are laughs to be had at McCarthy’s expense here, if you’re so inclined, but there’s also a definite sense that she’s in the right, and she has her own private, wry joke or two too.

Spy opens across the UK on June 28th though one of the big cinema chains, and you’ll know if your local is one of them, will be holding early screenings on May 28th. »

First 'Spy' Clip Reunites Melissa McCarthy & Rose Byrne

7 April 2015 8:29 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After earning rave reviews at SXSW, we have our first clip from the new action comedy Spy. The movie re-teams director Paul Feig with his Bridesmaids and The Heat breakout star Melissa McCarthy. This scene also includes Bridesmaids star Rose Byrne as a Russian villain named Raina who kindly insults McCarthy's super slick secret agent.

From 20th Century Fox, the R rated Spy follows Susan Cooper (Melissa McCarthy), an unassuming, deskbound CIA analyst, and the unsung hero behind the Agency's most dangerous missions. When her partner (Jude Law) falls off the grid and another top agent (Jason Statham) is compromised, she volunteers to go deep undercover to infiltrate the world of a deadly arms dealer, and prevent a global disaster. Part of her mission finds Cooper infiltrating the security ranks of a Russian Kingpin's daughter, which we get to see here.

This first clip for Spy comes courtesy of MTV. »

Paul Feig In Talks To Shape Play-Doh Movie For Fox

3 April 2015 12:55 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Hollywood’s habit of leaving no stone unturned and no franchise rebooted looks to be hitting its limit with the news that Fox are ushering a movie version of Play-Doh to the big screen. Early word on the flick points toward Bridesmaids and The Heat director Paul Feig taking up residence in the director’s chair with Butter writer Jason Micallef handling the script. Hasbro, the company behind the toy, are connecting with Chernin Entertainment to produce alongside Feig’s Feigco production arm.

While detractors of the idea will no doubt cite the toy-to-screen misfires of Battleship and Ouija, Warner struck gold last year with The Lego Movie. At the time, the concept of a narrative-less toy brand heading up a feature movie seemed impossible. Since clearing away a tidy sum at the box office, that brick-building franchise has spawned a slew of future instalments, and the Play-Doh outing just might do the same. »

Play-Doh Is Getting Its Own Movie, Get The Details

2 April 2015 6:52 PM, PDT | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

The success of The Lego Movie has seemingly rejuvenated Hollywood's desire to make movies based on toys. It was a few months ago that we learned that a Playmobil film is in the works, but now new reports have revealed that a Play-Doh feature is now in the works at 20th Century Fox as well. Word of this project comes to us from Deadline, and their sources say that the studio has actually lined up an extremely in-demand director to make it. The site reports that Paul Feig - who is currently deep in development on the coming Ghostbusters reboot over at Sony - is reportedly now in talks to helm the the Play-Doh movie. This does make a degree of sense, if not just because Feig and the studio worked together on the blockbuster hit The Heat, and just recently collaborated on the upcoming Melissa McCarthy comedy Spy.

Fox Working on Live-Action Play-doh Movie; Paul Feig May Write and Direct

2 April 2015 6:36 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

I adore The Lego Movie, but its success has wrought the belief that if anyone can make a movie out of Lego, then it’s possible to make a movie out of anything. First, that was technically true before The Lego Movie; second, Lego may not have a built-in story, but it does have settings and minifigures, and those figures convey personality. It also helps when your film is being handled by Phil Lord and Chris Miller, two guys who previously helmed a couple of other projects no one thought would be good movies—Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs and 21 Jump Street. Naturally, this entire context gets tossed out of the window, and what’s left is the belief that a brand alone is enough to get a movie going. We’ll see if it’s a strong enough starting place for a film based on Play-Doh, the terrible-smelling, »

SXSW 2015: Ranking All 21 Movies We Saw at This Year's Festival

1 April 2015 5:45 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

South by Southwest (SXSW) is the best week of the year for film fanatics. Period. It's in a wonderful place (Austin, Texas), sweetened by a lovely atmosphere that mixes the highbrow appreciation of erudite film nerds with the go-for-broke excitement of genre enthusiasts. There's nothing quite like it in the world of film festivals -- the vibe at SXSW isn't something that's easily replicated or translated; it just is.

We were on hand to take it all in and report back. Our interviews from the festival will be coming soon, along with the films that they accompany. But we also wanted to rank every film that we saw, in order of best to worst. This year's crop was pretty wonderful, even those in the back half of the list are still pretty great. (There were a couple of stinkers, but that happens at every festival.)

So sit back and relax, »

New Trailer For Spy Gets Great Use Out Of Jason Statham

1 April 2015 1:19 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

There’s a lot Jason Statham can do, and do brilliantly. He can punch, he can kick, he can smash a bottle over your head.

But his performances, outside of the exemplary action man stuff, can get mired, waste-deep in gravel. He’s a bit one-note, and sometime his face doesn’t sem to be alive.

Which makes him particularly funny in this trailer for Paul Feig’s new movie, Spy. He’s the hardcore, battle-toughened agent giving a hard time to Melissa McCarthy as the neophyte, Susan Cooper.

Watch the new trailer for the movie, below;

I think this has better chance of crossover appeal than The Heat – by which I mean, a lot of young men rejected The Heat, despite it having a lot of excellent qualities, first amongst which was that it was actually funny. So Spy could make an absolute heap of gold at the box office. »
