WHAT’S IT ABOUT?

Carol Peters (McCarthy), a shy and lonely woman, is unexpectedly chosen by the world’s first superintelligence – an artificially intelligent being (Corden) that can control any electronic device – to observe, so it can determine whether or not it shall take over the world. Carol must now prove to the hyper-intelligent being that humanity is worth preserving…

IN ONE SENTENCE, WHY SHOULD YOU BE EXCITED?

Melissa McCarthy and her husband Ben Falcone team up once again for this science-fiction comedy, which should hopefully have plenty more laughs than some of their last collaborations, including the awful Tammy and Life of the Party.

WHEN’S IT OUT?

FRIDAY 11TH DECEMBER 2020 (IN CINEMAS)
