Just call her McCarthy. Melissa McCarthy.

The actress reunites with Bridesmaids director Paul Feig for the comedy Spy, in which McCarthy plays a CIA analyst who gets a shot at her first mission in the field.

After her partner (Jude Law) disappears, Susan Cooper (McCarthy) must go undercover to stop a deadly arms dealer with the help of a veteran agent (Jason Statham) who can’t stand her.

“I’m a real spy,” Statham says in the movie’s hysterical new trailer. “I once drove a car off a freeway on top of a train while I was on fire. Not the car – I was on fire!”

Rose Byrne also stars in the film, which debuted to positive reviews at SXSW last month.

Spy hits theaters on June 5. Check out the trailer above.
