Kunis Burns It All While McKinnon Quarterbacks With Gusto In THE SPY WHO DUMPED ME Official Trailer
This is me waiting to see if director Susanna Fogel’s new explosive action comedy, The Spy Who Dumped Me, will cue any soundbytes from Pat Benetar’s “Love Is A Battlefield”. Not that I mind good old fashioned musical nostalgia here – or even that this film offers itself as a fitting date movie provided yours is the kind of company that doesn’t mind seeing things blow up and get shot in between lingering thoughts on romantic crises.
I also like that Kate McKinnon looks like she’s having a goddamn blast with this one. Her character is totally quarterbacking that of her co-star on their whirlwind adventure, and all founded on some pretty good performances sampled in Thursday’s official trailer. The chemistry between these two women runs on pure energy and fun and says everything I think we ought to know thusfar about how fun this film is going to be for moviegoers.
Audrey (Mila Kunis) and Morgan (Kate McKinnon), two thirty-year-old best friends in Los Angeles, are thrust unexpectedly into an international conspiracy when Audrey’s ex-boyfriend shows up at their apartment with a team of deadly assassins on his trail. Surprising even themselves, the duo jump into action, on the run throughout Europe from assassins and a suspicious-but-charming British agent, as they hatch a plan to save the world.
The Spy Who Dumped Me opens on a pretty auspicious weekend for action fans on August 3. Watch the official trailer now!
