Today, we bring you the first posters and trailer for Jason Bateman and Melissa McCarthy’s new comedy, IDENTITY THIEF, and I think it is safe to say that McCarthy is here to stay!
Coming off as the female Zach Galifianakis, McCarthy is absolutely hysterical as a Florida con-woman who steals Bateman’s identity. Despite Bateman’s attempts to confront her, it’s pretty obvious that she is nowhere near just a “hobbit”, and will be punching back every chance she gets!
Take a look at the video and posters below, and let us know what you think! (Although, I have to say, Bateman’s poster does make him look like a sucker…)
Directed by HORRIBLE BOSSES helm Seth Gordon, IDENTITY THIEF stars Bateman, McCarthy, Jon Favreau, John Cho, and Amanda Peet, and is set to hit theaters February 8, 2013.
