Following its worldwide premiere at SXSW this weekend, a quartet of UK posters for Spy have debuted online. Each one sheet dedicates its space to one of the three main characters heading up Paul Feig’s next comedy: Melissa McCarthy as the unassuming Susan Cooper, Jude Law as her partner Bradley Fine, and Jason Statham as fellow agent Rick Ford.
Spy marks the reunion of Bridesmaids‘ and The Heat‘s director-star combo, with Feig and McCarthy making jabs at the espionage genre for their third collaboration. The leading lady plays Cooper, a skilled-yet-shy office worker for the CIA, who is called up to serve her country when a field mission is flubbed. With the agency requiring an unknown face and persona, Cooper is thrust into the limelight as their only hope in an international arms blunder.
Early word on the movie has thus far been incredibly positive. Amping up audiences prior to the film’s release next month, a tide of reviews from SXSW have celebrated the dynamite duo on another very, very funny outing. And, apparently Statham may have found a future in comedy. Check back later for our review on the flick, and be sure to have a scroll through the new gallery of posters below.
Co-starring Rose Byrne, Peter Serafinowicz, Miranda Hart, and Morena Baccarin, Spy opens in the US on June 5.
Susan Cooper (Melissa McCarthy) is an unassuming, deskbound CIA analyst, and the unsung hero behind the Agency’s most dangerous missions. But 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.
