‘Identity Thief 2′ Already Being Discussed?

Identity Thief 2
Universal

'Identity Thief' has been in theaters for less than two weeks and it's already grossed $76 million at the box office, an enormous amount for a modestly budgeted comedy with a known but untested leading lady. Although critics haven't been as kind as audiences, $100 million is a sure thing at this point and we wouldn't rule out $150 million if March is kind to it. So of course Universal has already thought about an 'Identity Thief 2.' They probably thought about it two weeks ago.

Weekend Box Office Report: ‘Identity Thief’ Steals $36 Million

Is Melissa McCarthy a movie star yet? The opening weekend of 'Identity Thief' suggests that yes, she is. After all, all of those people weren't flocking to this movie because of Jason Bateman (as delightful as he is). Anyway, all of this pretty much means that McCarthy's asking price just doubled.

‘Identity Thief’ Review

Identity Thief review
Universal Pictures

Funny is, of course, subjective. I find Woody Allen funny but there are plenty of people who find him about as amusing as being slowly asphyxiated in plastic bags from CVS. Still, I'll hazard to guess that there is no one who will find Melissa McCarthy obnoxiously singing along to Kelis' not-at-all-current "Milkshake" funny. Especially when 'Identity Thief' - a new "comedy" with McCarthy and Jason Bateman - goes to quite successful lengths to make you HATE her character. And you just might wind up hating this movie too.

‘Identity Thief’ Trailer: Jason Bateman Is Going After Bilbo!

While we're waiting to see Jason Bateman star alongside his 'Arrested Development' castmates once again for the Netflix debut of the series' fourth season, he's got some Hobbit hunting to do. At least, that's what his character thinks lies ahead in the new 'Identity Thief' trailer, but what he gets is a not-so-Bilbo-like Melissa McCarthy who's ready to sock him in the face at a moment's notice.

‘The Heat’ Trailer Teams Up Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy

The Heat Trailer
20th Century Fox

No, this isn't a remake of the De Niro-Pacino classic. 'The Heat' brings Sandra Bullock, perhaps Hollywood's most bankable actress, and 'Bridesmaids' scene-stealer Melissa McCarthy, last year's most unlikely "it girl,"  together for a raucous buddy comedy that sees the two playing mismatched law enforcers. Can you imagine?!

The trailer for the comedy, directed by McCarthy's 'Bridesmaids' helmer Paul Feig, has just burst onto the internet, and you can watch it here after the break.

Identity Thief
Universal Pictures

Making comedy about a man whose credit line is ruined and is about to go to court for debt because of identity theft seems difficult. It's a nightmare scenario for anyone who's suffered it before. Hopefully Jason Bateman and Melissa McCarthy are enough to make 'Identity Thief' entertaining, and now we've got a trailer for the film.

When you have a breakout role, like Melissa McCarthy did in 'Bridesmaids,' it means they're going to throw a lot of cameos and supporting roles at you (it helps that McCarthy was Oscar nominated for her work).
