Watch The Teaser Trailer for Melissa McCarthy’s Newest Movie ‘Tammy’
Melissa McCarthy has come a long way since she played Sookie St. James on “Gilmore Girls.” McCarthy went from funny sidekick to hilarious leading lady. Her first big break in movies came with the release of “Bridesmaids” in 2011, even though she had plenty of small roles before that. Since the success of “Bridesmaids,” every movie she’s had a part in has had huge numbers at the box office. Her last movie in theaters was “The Heat,” which has a sequel hitting the big screen in 2015 or 2016.
McCarthy’s newest movie is titled “Tammy.” She not only stars in the film, she also co-wrote and co-produced the flick. The movie has a star-studded cast that includes McCarthy, Susan Sarandon, Dan Aykroyd, Allison Janney, Kathy Bates, Toni Collette, Mark Duplass and Sandra Oh. It’s set for release over the 4th of July weekend (officially July 2, 2014). As for the plot, Tammy, played by McCarthy, thinks she is living a nice, steady life, until she loses her job and then learns her husband has been unfaithful. This causes her to set off on a road trip with her alcoholic grandmother (Sarandon) and run into mischief along the way.
Warner Brothers recently released the first official teaser trailer and in true McCarthy fashion, it’s physical, knee-slapping comedy.
