You’d be hard-pressed to find a more delightful pair of comedic goofballs than Kate McKinnon and Mila Kunis, so it was only a matter of time before someone had the bright idea to team up the Saturday Night Live and Bad Mom stars in their own comedy vehicle. That film is The Spy Who Dumped Me (a play on the classic James Bond title The Spy Who Loved Me), which stars Kunish and McKinnon as a pair of LA gals who wind up in a spy caper, and Lionsgate has debuted the first trailer for the action comedy.
The Spy Who Dumped Me follows Audrey (Kunis) and Morgan (McKinnon), two best friends from L.A. who get tangled up in a high-stakes web of espionage and international conspiracy when Audrey’s ex-boyfriend turns up at their place with a team of deadly assassins on his trail. From there, the fish-out-of-water duo has to swing into action, winding up on the run in Europe on a mission to save the world.
Directed and co-written by Susanna Fogel, The Spy Who Dumped Me has a supporting cast to match its fantastic leads, co-starring Justin Theroux, Sam Heughan, Hasan Minhaj, and Gillian Anderson. The film arrives in theaters on August 3, 2018. Watch the first trailer below.
Here’s the official synopsis for The Spy Who Dumped Me:
“The film tells the story of Audrey (Mila Kunis) and Morgan (Kate McKinnon), thirty-year-old best friends from Los Angeles, who are unexpectedly thrust into an international conspiracy when Audrey’s ex-boyfriend (Justin Theroux) shows up at her apartment with a team of deadly assassins on his trail. Much to their own surprise, the duo jump into action, and find themselves on the run in Europe from the assassins and a suspiciously charming British agent (Sam Heughan), as they hatch a plan to save the world.”
