Melissa McCarthy channels her comedic star power into Tammy, the upcoming Warner Bros summer comedy about a woman (McCarthy) pushed over the edge when she’s fired from her fast food job, finds her husband cheating, and becomes a fugitive on the run with her grandma (Susan Sarandon) bound for Niagara Falls. The July 2 pic will test McCarthy’s comedy reign that started with Bridesmaids and continued with last year’s Identity Thief and The Heat, and also marks her first foray into feature scripting alongside husband Ben Falcone, who co-wrote and directs in his helming debut. Check out the first trailer:
