Give stars Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy a few swear words and a couple of explosions, and you've got the latest red band trailer for the female buddy-cop movie The Heat, which has just released:
Bullock and McCarthy star as reluctant partners in The Heat, written by Katie Dippold (Parks and Recreation) and directed by Paul Feig (Bridesmaids). Obviously, the film is following the buddy-cop genre to a T: a cop who plays it safe is paired with a spontaneous rule-breaker who gets the job done. The pair gets a tough, dangerous assignment, and then bond during the ensuing shenanigans.
The deviation that keeps The Heat fresh is not that the main duo is female, but actually because McCarthy commits to her roles so much that you never know what she'll say or do next. Bullock plays the straight role, but even she is given the chance to shine with her own hilarious bits once her character loosens up and has fun. And hey, any chance to hear the sophisticated and classy Bullock yell obscenities while throwing grenades is fine with us.
The Heat hits theaters on April 5, 2013.
