A new clip and poster for director Paul Feig’s (Bridesmaids) upcoming buddy cop comedy The Heat have been released online. The film stars Sandra Bullock as an FBI agent who teams up with a local Boston cop (Melissa McCarthy) in order to bring down a drug lord. The previous trailers and clips have teased some excellent chemistry between Bullock and McCarthy, and this latest clip is no different. We see an alternate take on the good cop/bad cop routine with a nice cameo by Michael McDonald and an excellent punch line.
Hit the jump to watch the clip and to check out the pic’s poster. The film also stars Katilin Olson, Demian Bichir, Tony Hale, Taran Killam and Michael Rapaport. The Heat opens on June 28th.
Here’s the official 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.”
