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.
