A new red-band trailer for Paul Feig’s buddy cop comedy The Heat has gone online. The film stars Sandra Bullock (The Blind Side) as an FBI agent who teams up with a local Boston cop (Bridesmaids’ Melissa McCarthy) in order to bring down a drug lord. While the trailer does seem to show off perhaps a bit too much in the way of plot, it’s the humor that matters here. The red-band trailer is easily the funniest bit of marketing from The Heat so far. Also starring Katilin Olson, Demian Bichir, Tony Hale, Taran Killam and Michael Rapaport, The Heat opens on April 5, 2013. Hit the jump to watch the red-band trailer.

Here’s the synopsis for The Heat:
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.”
