The Heat Trailer Teams Up Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy
20th Century Fox has debuted the first trailer for The Heat, Bridesmaids director Paul Feig's new comedy that turns the buddy cop genre on its ear. Sandra Bullock stars as a prim and proper FBI agent who is forced to team up with a crass Boston cop (Melissa McCarthy). Watch as these opposing forces collide in the new footage from this upcoming comedy. Despite what you may think, this is not a theatrical remake of TNT's Rizzoli & Isles (or the sequel to Miss Congeniality 2: Armed and Fabulous).
Uptight and straight-laced, FBI Special Agent Sarah Ashburn (Sandra Bullock) is a methodical investigator with a reputation for excellence--and hyper-arrogance. Shannon Mullins (Melissa McCarthy), one of Boston P.D.'s "finest," is foul-mouthed and has a very short fuse, and uses her gut instinct and street smarts to catch the most elusive criminals. Neither has ever had a partner, or a friend for that matter. When these two wildly incompatible law officers join forces to bring down a ruthless drug lord, they become the last thing anyone expected: buddies. From Paul Feig, the director of Bridesmaids.
