Prepare for an onslaught of pratfalls, as the 2015 Seattle International Film Festival gets things started with Melissa McCarthy starring in the action comedy Spy. Written and directed by Paul Feig (Bridesmaids, The Heat, and the upcoming Ghostbusters reboot), the movie finds McCarthy playing a C.I.A. desk jockey who must go into the field and tap into her inner James Bond to thwart a villain (Rose Byrne) trying to sell nukes to terrorists. Luckily, she's aided in her bumbling adventure by fellow spies played by Jason Statham and Jude Law. The SIFF 2015 Opening Night screening of Spy takes place on May 14 at McCaw Hall, and Feig is set to attend. The film opens nationwide on June 5.
Tickets for SIFF's Opening Night screening of Spy are on sale now at siff.net. General admission seats are $50 and VIP "Red Carpet Experience" tickets are $250.
