Before they start busting ghosts, Melissa McCarthy and director Paul Feig are teaming up for some undercover espionage in the action-comedy Spy. McCarthy plays Susan Cooper, a CIA office drone who must step up to the plate and into a few disguises when the agency’s best field agents (Jude Law, Jason Statham) are compromised. The film also stars Rose Byrne, Allison Janney, Morena Baccarin, and Bobby Cannavale. Spy opens everywhere on June 5, but The A.V. Club and 20th Century Fox have an opportunity for you to see it for free on Tuesday, June 2. For your chance to win a pair of passes to the advance screening, simply follow the link here and enter your information. As always, seats are first come, first served, so be sure to arrive early. An official plot synopsis and trailer for the film can be found below.


“Susan Cooper (Melissa McCarthy) is an unassuming, deskbound CIA analyst, and the unsung hero behind the Agency’s most dangerous missions. But when her partner (Jude Law) falls off the grid and another top agent (Jason Statham) is compromised, she volunteers to go deep undercover to infiltrate the world of a deadly arms dealer, and prevent a global disaster. Teaming with Melissa McCarthy for the third time, following their smash hits Bridesmaids and The Heat, writer-director Paul Feig this time adds a planeload of action to their trademark comedy and sets the story in gorgeous European locales. The bustling, unfamiliar environments of such famed capitals as Rome, Paris and Budapest add to Susan’s disorienting transition into the cloak-and-dagger fieldwork of international espionage.”
