‘Spy Who Dumped Me’ Trailer: There’s Nothing Basic About These Badass B*tches

No summer is complete without a great comedy movie and “The Spy Who Dumped Me” looks like a perfect fit. The title, of course, is a riff on the classic Bond movie “The Spy Who Loved Me.” The early word on this film has been overwhelmingly positive, with several people praising the chemistry between stars Mila Kunis and Kate McKinnon. No surprise there. McKinnon has consistently proved herself as the funniest “Saturday Night Live” cast member and Kunis has been crushing it in studio comedies like “Bad Moms” and “Ted.”

So what brings the two together in “The Spy Who Dumped Me?” Check out the synopsis below

Audrey (Kunis) and Morgan (McKinnon) are two thirty-year-old best friends in Los Angeles, who are thrust unexpectedly into an international conspiracy when Audrey’s ex-boyfriend, who was actually a spy, shows up at their

Second Trailer for 'The Spy Who Dumped Me' with Kunis & McKinnon

"This is insane! Have you ever felt so alive?" Lionsgate has debuted the second official trailer for the buddy comedy The Spy Who Dumped Me, starring Mila Kunis and Kate McKinnon as best friends who get into some spy trouble. The title is a riff on the classic James Bond movie The Spy Who Loved Me (released 1977). The plot involves the two women getting caught up in a deadly spy conspiracy with assassins on their tail, and even though he's her ex-boyfriend, they're still going after them. This trailer is a more conventional action movie trailer, and I still prefer the Bond song riff for the first teaser. Justin Theroux co-stars as the titular "spy", with Gillian Anderson, Ivanna Sakhno, Sam Heughan, and Hasan Minhaj. This does look a little too absurd, and a little too cheesy, maybe it could be entertaining? Let's hope it's not a disaster. Here's the

Trailer For Mila Kunis and Kate McKinnon's Action Comedy The Spy Who Dumped Me

Lionsgate has released a new trailer for the upcoming action comedy The Spy Who Dumped Me, which stars Mila Kunis (Bad Moms) and Kate McKinnon (Saturday Night Live). I'm sure you already recognized that the title of the film is a take on the tenth film in the James Bond franchise, The Spy Who Loved Me. The trailer even features a James Bond style opening theme. The movie actually looks like it could be funny.

Audrey (Kunis) and Morgan (McKinnon), two thirty-year-old best friends in Los Angeles, are thrust unexpectedly into an international conspiracy when Audrey’s ex-boyfriend shows up at their apartment with a team of deadly assassins on his trail. Surprising even themselves, the duo jump into action, on the run throughout Europe from assassins and a suspicious-but-charming British agent, as they hatch a plan to save the world.

The movie also stars Sam Heughan (Outlander), Justin Theroux

While the clip opens with a James Bond-styled theme (there's also the movie title nod to the Bond film, The Spy Who Loved Me) and the statement that "In 2018, women are killing it," best friends Audrey (played by Kunis) and Morgan (played by McKinnon) are not quite as suave at international espionage as initially implied.

Teaser Trailer for 'The Spy Who Dumped Me' with Kunis & McKinnon

"Why is this happening?!" "I don't know, because you dated a spy." Lionsgate has released the first teaser trailer for the buddy comedy The Spy Who Dumped Me, starring Mila Kunis and Kate McKinnon as best friends. The title is a riff on the classic James Bond movie The Spy Who Loved Me (released 1977), obviously, and the trailer plays like a Bond movie with the cool animated title sequence and all of that. I dig it. The plot involves the two women getting caught up in a deadly spy conspiracy with assassins on their tail, and even though he's her ex-boyfriend, they're still going after them. Justin Theroux co-stars as the spy, with Gillian Anderson, Ivanna Sakhno, Sam Heughan, and Hasan Minhaj. I was actually expecting this to look awful, but it doesn't look so bad.

‘The Spy Who Dumped Me’ Trailer Reveals the Mila Kunnis and Kate McKinnon Action Comedy

You'd be hard-pressed to find a more delightful pair of comedic goofballs than Kate McKinnon and Mila Kunis, so it was only a matter of time before someone had the bright idea to team up the Saturday Night Live and Bad Mom stars in their own comedy vehicle. That film is The Spy Who Dumped Me (a play on the classic James Bond title The Spy Who Loved Me), which stars Kunish and McKinnon as a pair of La gals who wind up in a spy caper, and Lionsgate has debuted the first trailer for the action comedy. …

Sam Mendes and company: Ranking the 007 directors

With recent rumors swirling that Danny Boyle could be coming on board to direct the newest James Bond film, what better time is there to look at the directorial history of the franchise? The prospect of Boyle in the world of Bond is enticing, if slightly unexpected and not a match that makes sense on paper. Still, much of the 007 history in terms of directors has been avoiding the A-listers. Maybe in this new era, there’s a different sort of focus? If nothing else, it’s something very interesting to contemplate. The last choice was a big name, so perhaps this is the new normal for the world’s most popular secret agent. To catch you up, the 25th Bond outing has been looking for a new director after Sam Mendes helmed the last two. The initial final three shortlist was Yann Demange, David Mackenzie, and Denis Villeneuve. There

Lewis Gilbert: master craftsman who went beyond Bond with a 'working class trilogy' | Peter Bradshaw

Gilbert, who has died aged 97, may have been best known for his three 007 films, but it’s the films he made about working class life that are his great achievement

Lewis Gilbert was the brilliant master-craftsman of the postwar cinema, whose staggeringly prolific career epitomised the technique, professionalism and dash that made British moviemaking tradecraft respected everywhere. He started in wartime film units and the British studio system, making war movies with tremendous elan and punch, like Reach for the Sky and Sink the Bismarck!, and also comedies and character dramas like The Admirable Crichton and The Greengage Summer, which were robustly confident and terrifically watchable. He also famously took the helm of three very successful Bond movies, one with Connery, two with Moore: You Only Live Twice, The Spy Who Loved Me and Moonraker, maintaining that uniquely British brand with wit and clout.

During WWII he served in the Raf, producing and directing documentaries for the military. His first feature film as director was "The Little Ballerina", released in 1947. Gilbert toiled through directing low-budget, often undistinguished films, honing his craft along the way. He earned praise for

Keeping The British End Up: Lewis Gilbert (1920 – 2018)

Author: Cai Ross

Bond fans are mourning the loss at the fine old age of 97, of director Lewis Gilbert. Gilbert was responsible for three of the biggest James Bond films of the 60s and 70s, You Only Live Twice, The Spy Who Loved Me and Moonraker.

His Bond movies took everything up to eleven. They all featured immense lairs for larger than life villains. In You Only Live Twice, Donald Pleasance’s HQ was housed inside a Japanese volcano. Moonraker’s climax was set on board a gargantuan space station, and The Spy Who Loved Me’s goliath supertanker set was so huge that thee producers had to build an entire sound stage at Pinewood to accommodate it.

The Spy Who Loved Me was an enormous gamble, an expensive doubling-down after the disappointing returns of The Man With The Golden Gun. The producers were rewarded with one of the biggest
