Watch 'The Spy Who Dumped Me' Teaser Trailer Starring Mila Kunis, Kate McKinnon
Mila Kunis and Kate McKinnon face off against deadly assassins in the upcoming action comedy The Spy Who Dumped Me.
The duo play Audrey (Kunis) and Morgan (McKinnon) who are thrust in the world of international espionage after finding out that Audrey's ex-boyfriend, played by Justin Theroux, is a spy.
As the Theroux's character tells her, the people after him are now after Audrey as well — and of course, her best friend Morgan is along for the ride. According to Deadline, the story follows the pair as they find themselves on the run in Europe in their attempt to save the world.
First Peek At 'The Spy Who Dumped Me'
The teaser trailer for the The Spy Who Dumped Me features Bond-esque music that sets the tone of a glamorous espionage story. It fits, especially since the title of the film is inspired by the 1997 James Bond film The Spy Who Loved Me.
However, that's where the similarities end, as Kunis and McKinnon are anything but glamorous in the movie.
The pair, comically unprepared for life as a spy, get into strange and hilarious adventures from trying to drive a stick shift to panicking about killing someone in public.
"There's no turning back for us," Morgan says in the trailer. "We're semi-professionals at this point."
Outlander actor Sam Heughan also stars as a charming and handsome British agent. Other cast members include Gillian Anderson, Hasan Minhaj, and Ivanna Sakhno.
The film is directed by Susanna Fogel, who also helmed the indie film Life Partners in 2014. Fogel also cowrote the script with David Iserson. Producers include Erica Huggins and Brian Grazer from Imagine Entertainment.
Fogel On 'The Spy Who Dumped Me'
Fogel and Iserson, who are good friends, came about with their love of action movies combined with a desire to capture female friendship onscreen. As the director described in an interview with EW, they wrote the script with Broad City meets Bourne in mind.
"Our jumping-off point was, 'What would we do if we had to run from the cops in, like, my Toyota Prius?'" she explains. "What would we do if we were confronted with an assassin? We'd probably make fun of something he was wearing."
While Fogel made sure the action sequences of the film are legitimate, she also wants a film that's refreshingly relatable.
"I want people watching the movie to think, Oh, that's like me and my friends," she says. "I want it to be a movie that people watch on dates or at bachelorette parties just like Bridesmaids."
The Spy Who Dumped Me is slated to hit theaters on Aug. 3.
