Fox also pushes “Fantastic Four” reboot to June 2015, “Secret Service” to March and “Assassin’s Creed” to August of that year
Fox has picked Memorial Day weekend 2015 as the release date for “Susan Cooper,” its Melissa McCarthy spy spoof directed by Paul Feig of “The Heat.”
It was one of several release dates announced by the studio Tuesday.
Fox also pushed its superhero reboot “Fantastic Four” from March 2015 to June 19, putting it in the thick of the summer tentpole season. It shifted comic book spy tale “Secret Service” from Nov. 14, 2014, to March 6, 2015. And “Assassin’s Creed,” based on the video game, will now open on Aug. 7, 2015, rather than June 19 of that year.
“Susan Cooper,” which will feature McCarthy in a James Bond-type role, will share its May 22, 2015, opening date with Disney’s sci-fi film “Tomorrowland.” “Susan Cooper” reteams McCarthy with Rose Byrne, with whom she co-starred in Feig’s 2011 comedy hit “Bridesmaids.” Feig also directed McCarthy and Sandra Bullock in this summer’s comedy hit “The Heat,” which has taken in nearly $230 million worldwide.

Not that I watch the show, but why are they calling Mike & Molly “The New Mike & Molly“? Recasts, maybe? –Brandy
Recasts? You’re funny. (Not that you watch the show, wink-wink, nudge-nudge.) No, it’s the same cast, but one could argue that events of the season premiere steer the sitcom in a new direction – and it’s a sort of hard left turn, in my opinion. (Not that I watch the show.) And for those emailing about the babymaking storyline from Season 2, yes, that thread is touched upon in the premiere.
Melissa McCarthy’s ELLE magazine cover, where she is seen covered in a coat, raised some eyebrows with many suggesting the mag was attempting to hide the curvy actress’ physique – but the star tells Access Hollywood otherwise.
The 43-year-old actress appears on the mag’s “Women in Hollywood” issue, draped in a charcoal Marina Rinaldi coat – something she told Access that she selected!
“I think they are crazy,” she said at the ELLE Celebrates 20th Annual Women In Hollywood Event on Monday, when asked about the backlash surrounding the cover.
In fact, the actress made the decision to sport the coat on the cover.
“I had a great dress on. I’m the one who grabbed the coat!” “The Heat” star explained.
Adding, “I loved my cover, I feel in love with that coat.”
Melissa and Mike and Molly are up nominations for People’s Choice –
Alana: Just watched every episode of Mike & Molly and now I’m a fan. Do you have any info from the new season?
Molly will end up in a coffin. Wait! Don’t panic. She does find herself laying in a coffin, but she’s alive and just joking around in a funeral home. You know, as one does. Turns out that Mike and Molly will enjoy some substances of the…recreational variety and won’t be able to stop giggling during their funeral home adventure. And since it’s television, of course Molly will scare the living daylights out of a familyjust trying to pick out a coffin for a deceased loved one.
