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.’ “
Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy hold each other at the Twentieth Century Fox presentation to promote their film The Heat at Caesars Palace during 2013 CinemaCon on Thursday (April 18) in Las Vegas, Nev.
The Heat is set to be released on June 28! Check pictures in our gallery, and many thanks to Ann for sending in a bunch of them!
I have added three promotional stills for ‘The Heat’ to the gallery. Check it:
Deadline is reporting that Sandra Bullock will be lending her voice to Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment’s Despicable Me spin-off Minions. She’s set to play the stylish Scarlet Overkill who — you guessed it — is “bent on world domination.” One can see more minions this summer in Despicable Me 2, but you’ll have wait some time for a film based on the little creatures as Minions doesn’t hit until December 19, 2014. Check out a synopsis of the film below.
This spinoff establishes that Minions have existed since the beginning of time, in service of history’s most ambitiously evil villains. Through their lovable ineptitude, Minions have managed to thwart and ultimately destroy all of those bad guys. This story picks up in the 1960s, before they hench-ed for Gru. With no more super-villains to serve, the Minions fall into a collective depression and three of them set out to seek a new evil master. They wind up at a villain convention, where they compete for the right to be henchmen for Scarlet Overkill, whose Audrey Hepburn-like high style appearance belies her world domination ambition and her aspirations to become the world’s first female super-villain.
Finally I got in hands screen captures of 1993 movie “Wrestling Ernest Hemingway”, with starring Richard Harris, Robert Duvall, Shirley MacLaine and Sandra Bullock. Check it:
