“The Spy Who Dumped Me” will be in theaters on Aug. 3.
This American action comedy is about two best friends in their 30s who live in Los Angeles. Audrey (Mila Kunis) and Morgan (Kate McKinnon), are thrust into an international conspiracy because Aurdey’s ex-boyfriend is a CIA agent.
They decide to take action, team up to save the world while being chased by a team of assassins around several European cities.
Kunis said they are “spy-ish” and McKinnon said, “We’re trying spies” in an interview conducted by ET. Their unplanned and unprofessional antics make this film a comedy.
Director Susanna Fogel made them look good with spy instincts, and also filled this film with explosions, car chases, and gunfights.
Off camera, the two main actresses seem to have good best friend forever chemistry and so they enjoy working with each other.
Sam Heughan stars as CIA agent, Sebastian, and he receives intensive physical training to look like a real special agent. “He’s a really good guy who’s smart, kind, and thoughtful—who just happens to be good-looking,” Kunis talked about Heughan recently in Men’s Journal.
He also has a big heart. He founded a nonprofit organization, My Peak Challenge (MPC), in 2015 where participants commit to a annual goal, that is running a race or climbing a mountain, and they get daily workout videos, meal plans, and participate in meetups where Heughan sometimes shows up.
Part of their signup fee goes to nonprofit organizations, such as Bloodwise and Cahonas Scotland that help patients with terminal diseases or raise awareness of testicular-cancer respectively.
