New Life of the Party trailer & poster with Melissa McCarthy
New Line Cinema has revealed a new trailer and poster for Life of the Party, the college comedy starring Melissa McCarthy. Check out the new Life of the Party trailer below, along with the poster in the gallery!
Directed by McCarthy’s husband, 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, Maddie (Molly Gordon), 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 (Ghostbusters) and Falcone co-wrote the screenplay for the movie and 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 will open on May 11, 2018.
