A new international trailer for director Paul Feig’s (Bridesmaids) new comedy The Heat has landed online. The film stars Sandra Bullock (The Blind Side) as an FBI agent who teams up with a local Boston cop (Melissa McCarthy) in order to bring down a drug lord. There’s not a ton of new footage, but this trailer is worth the watch if only to hear the movie voice over guy say the word “tight ass.” Bullock and McCarthy look to have absolutely excellent chemistry, and Feig’s involvement promises the comedy will likely be supported by a sufficient dose of heart.
Hit the jump to watch the new trailer. The film also stars Katilin Olson, Demian Bichir, Tony Hale, Taran Killam and Michael Rapaport. The Heat opens on April 5, 2013.

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.”
