Meet the agents in these new international posters for the action comedy Spy

03.17.2015

While Paul Feig stokes the fires of discord regarding his upcoming reboot of GHOSTBUSTERS, his latest female-led action comedy, SPY, prepares to hit theaters. The film stars Melissa McCarthy, Jude Law, Jason Statham, and Rose Byrne and we have a new batch of international posters showcasing their various roles in the film.

Unfortunately, the Rose Byrne poster has not popped up yet, but you can see in the four we have that each spy seems to have their own distinct style. Jude Law has a very James Bond look while Jason Statham has more of a 1970s Michael Caine vibe going with the turtleneck and blazer. And, well, then there is Melissa McCarthy who continues to rock her undercover grandma look that is very reminiscent of Susan Sarandon in last summer's flop TAMMY.

As I looked at the marketing materials for SPY, there was something it was reminding me of that I could not put my finger on. Then, it hit me: these posters look almost identical to the marketing for the Steve Carell/Anne Hathaway movie GET SMART. The only difference is McCarthy takes the place of Carell, Rose Byrne Replaces Hathaway, and Statham and Law stand in for Dwayne Johnson. I enjoyed GET SMART quite a bit, so if SPY can be half as funny it should be worth checking out.

SPY opens in theaters on June 5th.

What can I say.....

To the user who commented that the poster looks like 'Lethal Weapon 2' you are spot on, as is the user who commented on similarities with Stop Or My Mom Will Shoot. I glanced at this poster and my initial thought was they were remaking it. Horrible. Simply horrible. Terrible tagline, terrible poster.

That last poster is a rip-off...

...of the Lethal Weapon 3 poster. As for the movie itself, I have zero interest in it. Will never see it.

One of my gripes with Statham's career is so many of his projects haven't taken advantage of his comic timing when it comes to dialogue. For that alone I'm interested in giving this a chance, though the unlikely spy comedy formula misses at least as often as it hits.

People loved it at SXSW. I haven't really liked what i've seen of McCarthy, but apparently she's really good and different here- no fat jokes. She's the competent agent and Statham is the outrageously overconfident but bumbling one. I had no interest but it sounds pretty great. But yeah this poster is terrible.

Melissa McCarthy was a bridesmaid, then she was a fed, but now Melissa McCarthy is a Spy. And she's about to find out that working with spies is harder than being one of the guys. Da derpa derp da tweedly tweedly tumble terp. Melissa McCarthy is Spy.... Rated PG13. Fuck You. Who gives a shit you'll see it.
