WHAT’S IT ABOUT?

Susan Cooper (McCarthy) is a desk-bound CIA analyst and also the unsung hero behind many of the agency’s most dangerous missions. However, she feels unsatisfied with her position and longs to experience what it’s like out in the field – a chance she is soon given when her partner, top agent Bradley Fine (Law), disappears off the grid and the identity of every other agent, including Rick Ford (Statham), is compromised.

IN ONE SENTENCE, WHY SHOULD YOU BE EXCITED?

Continuing the strong partnership between director Paul Feig and star Melissa McCarthy – they will soon reunite again for the forthcoming Ghostbusters reboot – Spy is an outrageously funny spy comedy from the pair that hopes to be one of the summer’s biggest laugh-fests.
