After last years unexpected hit Bridesmaids, 2013 is the year the star of the show Melissa McCarthy steps into the limelight, take the credit she deserves and Identity Thief will be her chance and tonight we have another look at the film with a fresh new trailer.
Since Bridesmaids virtually every comedy film coming our way film studios have been fighting to get the actress starring in their films reluctantly until now, with This Is 40 (February 14th), Identity Thief (March), female buddy cop film The Heat (April) with Sandra Bullock and allegedly The Hangover Part 3, Tammy with Shirely McClaine all coming her way in 2013. She is one of the best composed improvisers in the industry makes you wonder why it’s taken so long for Hollywood to give her the push she deserves?!
Identity Thief stars Jason Bateman as a regular guy Sandy Bigelow Patterson who finds his identity stolen by a harmless look deceptive looking Diane (McCarthy) con artist who has maxed his card. With his whole world falling around him Sandy must head to Florida where Diane is based and has one week to bring her back or find himself in deep deep doo doo.
The first trailer for Identity Thief funnily enough set the pace of the film in the plot, the humour we can expect, the new trailer gives a chance for the support cast to get some screen trailer time but most of all more humour. This time we’re treated to a mix of slapstick comedy and some great timely one liners especially one of The Hobbit, made us chuckle a bit . Certainly looks a superior film to director Seth Gordon Green’s last attempt
Identity Thief will arrive in UK&Ireland 1st March 2013 and also stars Jon Favreau, Amanda Peet, Tip “T.I.” Harris, Genesis Rodriguez, Morris Chestnut, John Cho, Robert Patrick, and Eric Stonestreet.
