The Red Band Trailer for The Boss has just debuted online! And it's filthy. There isn't any sex or real violence on display, for the most part. A man does get hit in the throat with an angry tennis ball lob. And there is a massive street fight involving a Dandelions girl scout troop. But the most dangerous thing about this Red Band trailer is its raw, go for broke, no holds barred language. This might be the most foul-mouthed trailer you'll see all year. And it's quite glorious in its own right.
Academy Award-nominated star Melissa McCarthy headlines The Boss. She is a titan of industry who is sent to prison after she's caught for insider trading. When she emerges ready to rebrand herself as America's latest sweetheart, not everyone she screwed over is so quick to forgive and forget. And this is definitely going to be an uphill battle for the fallen superstar.
'My name is Michelle Darnell, and I am the wealthiest woman in America! How wealthy am I? I wanted to come down on a golden phoenix and I sure as shit did it!' That's the declaration Melissa McCarthy makes in the new Universal Comedy The Boss. Michelle Darnell is a woman of industry! She's a lady of power! She's in a lot of trouble! If you love Melissa McCarthy, you'll probably think that this is downright spectacular!
Melissa McCarthy is joined in The Boss by an all-star cast. Along for the ride are Kristen Bell, Peter Dinklage, Cecily Strong, Annie Mumolo and Kathy Bates. Directed by Ben Falcone, the comedy is based on an original character created by Melissa McCarthy. The script was written by Melissa McCarthy and Falcone alongside their Groundlings collaborator, Steve Mallory.
The film is produced by Ben Falcone and Melissa McCarthy through their On the Day productions, alongside Will Ferrell, Adam McKay and Chris Henchy through their Gary Sanchez Productions. This serves as the second collaboration between director and star, who are actually husband and wife. The duo took on the exact same roles for last year's Tammy. Take a look at the raunchy new footage. It arrives along with a brand new poster featuring Melissa McCarthy as she gloriously burns through her immense fortune.
