You think your ex was bad? Everyone has some horror stories about an ex of theirs, but Mila Kunis and Kate McKinnon’s new movie The Spy Who Dumped Me is going to put all your stories to shame. Because when your ex is a spy who literally puts your life in danger just because you dated him, things take a turn for the deadly.
The new action-comedy pairs the hilarious ladies together in a genre that may seem like it’s been done before, but when Kunis and McKinnon are the center of it all, just shut up and take our money.
ICYMI, The Spy Who Dumped Me follows Audrey (Mila Kunis) and Morgan (Kate McKinnon), two 30-year-old best friends based in Los Angeles, who are unwittingly and unexpectedly thrust into an international conspiracy when Audrey’s ex-boyfriend (Justin Theroux) shows up at their apartment with a team of deadly assassins on his trail. Surprising even themselves, the duo jump into action and run from assassins and a suspicious-but-charming British agent (Sam Heughan) throughout Europe. Oh, and they hatch a plan to save the world.
The Spy Who Dumped Me trailer just dropped, and it will make you wonder why you never knew you needed Kunis and McKinnon teaming up for a spy comedy before this.
Because now, it’s literally all we can think about. These regular-people-turned-spies are an extreme *mood* and who can we talk to to make sure this becomes an extended film franchise? We already know that we need about four more of these movies with these formidable females, and we haven’t even seen the first one!
And did you catch Outlander hunk Heughan in the trailer? Welcome to the big screen, sir. It is going to take a moment to get used to seeing you not in a kilt and tartan, but the suit looks mighty fine on you. But with Heughan’s character described as “suspicious,” something tells us there’s more to him than just a gun, a badge and a well-tailored suit. Could Heughan be playing a bad guy in this? Honestly, we’re not even mad, we’re just impressed.
The Spy Who Dumped Me hits theaters on August 3rd.
