It’s a comedy that’s expected to unseat brooding blockbusting behemoth BATMAN V SUPERMAN from the top of the US box-office (after just two weeks!), and so THE BOSS this weekend is comedy superstar Melissa McCarthy!
Yes, following her role in last summer’s hilarious hit SPY, McCarthy and her real-life husband Ben Falcone reunite after bring us the disappointing TAMMY and are already receiving rave reviews for the film co-written with Groundlings regular Steve Mallory.
Originally titled MICHELLE DARNELL, McCarthy stars as a former financial giant, now attempting to get her life back on track after losing it all in an insider trading scandal.
Academy Award®-nominated star Melissa McCarthy (Bridesmaids, The Heat, Tammy) headlines The Boss as a titan of industry who is sent to prison after she’s caught for insider trading. When she emerges ready to rebrand herself as America’s latest sweetheart, not everyone she screwed over is so quick to forgive and forget.
Earlier this week we brought you the very first featurette and now Universal Pictures have released three more for the film co-starring Kristen Bell, Peter Dinklage, Kathy Bates, Kristen Schaal, Cecily Strong, Margo Martindale, Tyler Labine and Annie Mumolo.
THE BOSS is released in US theaters April 8 and the UK in June.
