Today I had to chose between doing a post about the second Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer or a post about the red band trailer for Spy. And I chose Spy.

It's not that I think Spy will be a better movie. Comparing this espionage parody to Marvel's superflick is like comparing apples to oranges. But the "new" Avengers trailer really doesn't tell us much more than the first one did. Meanwhile, not only is the trailer for Spy is brand spanking new, it's also pretty funny. A bit clichéd, but funny.

Melissa McCarthy stars as a CIA analyst who finally gets her shot at working in the field alongside agents played by Jude Law and Jason Stratham. There are penis jokes, vagina jokes, sight gags, foul language, and even Rose Byrne—pretty much everything we've come to expect from a movie starring Melissa McCarthy and directed by Paul Feig (Bridesmaids, The Heat).

My hunch? This movie may bore the critics, but it's going to make 20th Century Fox a bunch of money.

Spy hits theaters May 22, 2015.
