Watch: New, Foulmouthed International Trailer For 'The Heat' With Sandra Bullock & Melissa McCarthy

With a gig on the CBS sitcom "Mike & Molly" limiting her schedule for making movies, Melissa McCarthy is still looking to tap into the praise and buzz she earned for "Bridesmaids." Her stint in Judd Apatow's "This Is 40" is more or less a cameo (albeit a great one -- the outtakes of the principal's office scene over the credits were funnier than half the movie) but within six months, audiences are going to be getting a double dose of the comedienne in lead roles. Next month she'll make Jason Bateman's life a living hell in "Identity Thief," and then a few months after that Sandra Bullock will play the straight man alongside McCarthy in "The Heat."

With a gig on the CBS sitcom "Mike & Molly" limiting her schedule for making movies, Melissa McCarthy is still looking to tap into the praise and buzz she earned for "Bridesmaids." Her stint in Judd Apatow's "This Is 40" is more or less a cameo (albeit a great one -- the outtakes of the principal's office scene over the credits were funnier than half the movie) but within six months, audiences are going to be getting a double dose of the comedienne in lead roles. Next month she'll make Jason Bateman's life a living hell in "Identity Thief," and then a few months after that Sandra Bullock will play the straight man alongside McCarthy in "The Heat."

A brand new international trailer has arrived for the movie, and it serves up footage we've seen before, but with more than enough new jokes and scenes to make it worth a spin. The actual story continues to play second fiddle or simply be obscured probably because it just isn't that important. Wild Boston cop McCarthy is teamed with straight-laced FBI agent Bullock and their friction is supposed to make the funny fly. And it is amusing, even if seems almost too lose and reliant on McCarthy making up zany lines on the fly.

"The Heat" goes on patrol on April 5th. Watch below.
