Yahoo! Movies has set loose this latest clip from the upcoming comedy ‘The Heat.’ From Paul Feig, the director of ‘Bridesmaids,’ ‘The Heat’ is pencilled in for a June 28th release in the US and July 31st bow in the UK. Alongside Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy, the film co-stars the likes of Demian Bichir, Tony Hale, Spoken Reasons, Taran Killam, Kaitlin Olson and Michael Rapaport.
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.
