Melissa McCarthy’s new movie, Life of the Party, poster and trailer debut date
Melissa McCarthy (Ghostbusters) has a brand new poster for her new movie, Life of the Party, and she will be debuting the trailer on Monday, February 5, on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
Directed by Ben Falcone, New Line Cinema’s comedy finds longtime dedicated housewife Deanna (McCarthy) turning regret into re-set by going back to college after her husband suddenly dumps her. Deanna lands in the same class and school as her daughter, who’s not entirely sold on the idea. Plunging headlong into the campus experience, the increasingly outspoken Deanna–now going by Dee Rock–embraces freedom, fun and frat boys on her own terms, finding her true self in a senior year no one ever expected.
The film also stars Gillian Jacobs (Community), Maya Rudolph (Bridesmaids), Julie Bowen (Modern Family), Matt Walsh (Veep), Molly Gordon (Animal Kingdom), with Stephen Root (Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates), and Oscar nominee Jacki Weaver (Silver Linings Playbook), as well as Jessie Ennis (Better Call Saul), Adria Arjona (True Detective), Debby Ryan (Jessie) and Jimmy O. Yang (Silicon Valley).
McCarthy and director Falcone co-wrote the screenplay for Life of the Party, and they also produced it through their production company, On the Day. Chris Henchy also produced the film, with Toby Emmerich, Richard Brener, Michael Disco, and David Siegel serving as executive producers. The movie will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures.
Life of the Party is slated for release on May 11, 2018.
