Have you been sucked into a movie trailer recently because it used an awesome song you meant to look up later? That's why I've rounded up the tunes that popped out at me from recent trailers like Safe Haven, Identity Thief, and Pain & Gain. Click through to watch the trailers, find out what song is featured, and get a Spotify playlist of all the tracks at the end. Happy listening!
We've seen the buddy cop movie done a million times over, but the female buddy cop angle feels fresh in the trailer for The Heat. In the comedy, Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy play an FBI agent and detective, respectively, who get paired up for a drug case, and thus, a classic unlikely partnership is born. Bullock, as Katerina, is the by-the-book agent, while McCarthy's Detective Nelson is the live wire who causes as much trouble as she cleans up.
Though McCarthy is essentially playing the same character she did in Bridesmaids (but as a police officer), her delivery is still spot-on as she exacts withering threats. However, it's Bullock that made me laugh more in this preview — it feels like it's been too long since we've seen her in a straight-up comedy, and her chemistry with McCarthy looks fantastic. While The Heat may not be a groundbreaking movie, the trailer is silly and fun, and boasts other comedic strengths, like Bridesmaids director Paul Feig and appearances by Tony Hale, Kaitlin Olson, and SNL's Taran Killam. The movie comes out June 28, but you can watch the trailer now after the jump.
Sandra Bullock was on location in Cambridge, MA, yesterday while filming The Heat. She chatted with a production assistant while leaving her trailer to film some scenes. The movie is a buddy cop flick in which Sandra stars opposite the Emmy-nominated Melissa McCarthy. Bridesmaids director Paul Feig is also involved with the film, which will be Sandra's first comedic turn since 2009. She took a break to focus on more dramatic roles, including her part as an engineer in Gravity. George Clooney portrays a veteran astronaut in the sci-fi thriller, which is scheduled for release in 2013.
Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy shared a scene for The Heat in Boston yesterday. Sandra was all smiles in between takes but got serious during filming with Melissa. It was an extra-special day on set following the news that Melissa was nominated for multiple Emmys. She got a nod for her small-screen role on Mike & Molly and another for her guest spot on Saturday Night Live. Melissa's work also landed her among the highest-paid TV actresses on Forbes's list. She's continuing to juggle her big-screen career as well and has This Is 40 hitting theaters in December.
Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy reported to the Boston set of The Heat for their latest afternoon of work yesterday. The ladies have been filming the buddy comedy since last week, but there has already been some drama during production. A city bus crashed into a trailer, sending several people to the hospital, though there were apparently no fatal injuries. It looks like Melissa and Sandra are staying focused on the project despite the incident. The funny role is just Melissa's latest, since she also has This Is 40 hitting theaters in December.
Sandra Bullock was dressed in business gear as she left a trailer on the Boston set of The Heat yesterday. This is the first time she's been spotted in character for the cop comedy, which will also star Melissa McCarthy. The movie will bring Melissa back together with her Bridesmaids director, Paul Feig, who is also directing this funny film. Sandra's getting back to comedy following her last, more serious project, Gravity. She wrapped work on the thriller earlier this year, but we won't get to see her and costar George Clooney on the big screen until 2013, as the release date was pushed back.

The Heat is a gleaming slider phone with an electrostatic touchpad (think iPhone-like sleekness but available now!) that's chic, but has all the right geeky qualities. The touchpad is set so you can customize its sensitivity (super, high, medium, low) for navigation through a simple finger tap, which means no more pushing extra hard while trying to navigate through applications.
Produced by Samsung for Helio members in the US, the Heat comes in two colors: high-gloss Onyx and shimmering Gold. I am sure most of you know by now that you can read PopSugar on your Helio, but the company has added even more of your favorite websites and features to their service! read more
