Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy’s buddy cop comedy “The Heat” will be screened in advance for Boston police officers and FBI agents.
The city was stunned Monday after twin bombings at the Boston Marathon killed three people and injured scores more.
Bullock, who plays an uptight “Miss Congeniality”-esque FBI agent sent to work on a case in Boston in the film, thought the screening was a small token of appreciation.
“It’s been an amazing tightknit community before this happened, and it just bonded a community even more. I don’t think a screening would ever be enough, feel like it’s enough to do for them.
I think having been there, having had our entire crew around us all the time, who are all from Boston, you’re just hoping. And when you see the aftermath, I try to look on the other side, which is, ‘Look how amazing the people were. Look at those people that ran toward everyone without thinking twice about themselves.’ “
