White House Down Stumbles At Friday Box Office, While The Heat Takes Over
Alright, people, I don't know what else we can possibly give you. It's just before the Fourth of July, and you need something to see at the movies. Roland Emmerich, the guy who brought you Independence Day is back, and he's once again blowing up the White House. And the Capitol. And he's got Channing Tatum and Jamie Foxx (as the President, for God's sake!) running around trying to stop the terrorists who did it

Melissa McCarthy's Voice Joins Seth Rogen's In B.O.O.(Bureau of Otherworldly Operations)
Watts (McCarthy) is the oddball partner to Rogen’s Jackson Moss in the titular Bureau, which is a super duper secret government agency founded to keep ghosts from haunting innocent humans. The two new agents get engaged in a high stakes plot once they find out the Most Wanted Haunter, along with his ghost army, is planning on destroying B.O.O. and turning Earth into a ghoulish graveyard.

Is Melissa McCarthy's Photoshopping In The Heat Poster The Worst Ever?
Everyone knows what Melissa McCarthy really looks like, and unless CGI technologies have advanced to an unprecedented to degree, her actual face will be on display when the comedy The Heat opens later this month. But the above poster for the movie seems to be attempting to change McCarthy's face entirely

Melissa McCarthy Throws An Extra Off The Set Of Tammy For Allegedly Abusing A Child
The situation became an issue when McCarthy caught the mother jerking the child in the air by the wrist. Unsurprisingly, McCarthy fired the woman and had production assistants take the woman off the premises, the actress saying she wouldn’t tolerate abuse on her set.

Sandra Bullock And Melissa McCarthy Try Good-Cop/Bad-Cop In The Heat Clip
I believe that Feig’s Heat will live or die based on the chemistry shared between these two funny ladies, and there’s tremendous interplay between Bullock and McCarthy that I think is going to help turn this into a smash hit.

Melissa McCarthy And Sandra Bullock Get Tough In First Clip From The Heat
If there's anyone who can save us from what feels like an uninspiring summer movie season, it's Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy. The unlikely comic duo is teaming up for The Heat, the next film from Bridesmaids director Paul Feig that changes genres entirely, casting the two as FBI agents who aren't exactly good at working with partners

Melissa McCarthy Will Star Opposite A Conniving Bill Murray In St. Vincent De Van Nuys
Who could possibly picture Murray as a corrupt, thieving, lying gambler? McCarthy will play his new neighbor, a single mother whose multi-shift hospital schedule forces her hand in asking De Van Nuys to look after her good-hearted 12-year-old son. Though the elder gentleman subjects the boy to much of his bad behavior, only the positive aspects are filtered through. It’s hard to see where this project could go wrong, especially if Melfi’s script is as affecting as its buzz has implied

Sandra Bullock, Melissa McCarthy Continue To Crush In The Heat Trailer
Melissa McCarthy has two high-profile comedies rolling into theaters over the next few weeks. Yet, while her Identity Thief (with Jason Bateman) will reach area screens first, we’re kind of looking past that to the March release of The Heat thanks to hilarious new international trailers like this one, which recently landed online.

New Identity Thief Trailer Lets Melissa McCarthy Cut Loose
Aside from a tiny role in Judd Apatow's This is 40, Melissa McCarthy hasn't actually been much of a presence at the movies this year. But her performance as Megan in last year's Bridesmaids, and the Oscar nomination that came with it, still looms large enough in pop culture that it feels like McCarthy has been everywhere

Bill Burr Joins Bullock And McCarthy In Paul Feig's Buddy Cop Film
Paul Feig's Bridesmaids was a fantastic demonstration of just how funny women can be, and perhaps we'll see a similar demonstration when he directs Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy in the yet-to-be-titled buddy cop film written by Katie Dippold. While the movie has already begun filming in Boston, it's apparently still adding to its cast.

Sandra Bullock And Melissa McCarthy Teaming Up For Paul Feig Directed Buddy Cop Movie
Almost twenty years ago, Sandra Bullock brought an amusing kind of charm to her role as law enforcer Lenina Huxley in the futuristic action movie Demolition Man. From what's being reported, it looks like the Blind Side star will be back in a badge and teaming up with fellow funny lady Melissa McCarthy for a comedy written by Katie Dippold and directed by Bridesmaids' Paul Feig.

Chris Rock Wants Melissa McCarthy For The Film He's Writing
Chris Rock had one of the most surprising and charming acting turns at this year's Sundance Film Festival, playing the beleaguered husband of Julie Delpy's character in 2 Days In New York, an energetic comedy she also directed

Melissa McCarthy, Jason Bateman Paired In Seth Gordon's Comedy Identity Theft
Bateman will play a man whose identity is stripped, and while the script originally was supposed to pair him with another male comedian (as the thief), the premise was shifted once the Arrested Development star saw McCarthy in Bridesmaids. That’s a big win for Theft, as multiple projects reportedly have been lobbying for McCarthy’s talents as she continues to work her way through the awards race and eyes a potential Best Supporting Actress nomination.

Judd Apatow Doesn't Want Bridesmaids 2 To Be Jaws 3D
The proposed sequel has grabbed plenty of headlines recently. First came reports that Kristen Wiig and Bridesmaids' co-writer Annie Mumolo weren't interested in making Bridesmaids 2, which led to rumors that Universal would seek to produce a cash cow sequel without them. Speculation soon surfaced that the flick's breakthrough comedienne Melissa McCarthy would shoulder the Wiig-less spin-off...

Beth McCarthy Set To Direct Melissa McCarthy's Comedy Tammy
While a Bridesmaids sequel without Kristen Wiig could be out of the question for Melissa McCarthy, we will be seeing the Mike & Molly star back on the big screen eventually. In addition to being credited for a part in the upcoming Judd Apatow comedy This is 40, McCarthy also has Tammy in the works. The comedy, which McCarthy co-wrote and will executive-produce along with her husband/Bridesmaids-love interest Ben Falcone, now has a director.
