Universal Pictures’ upcoming comedy The Boss, starring Melissa McCarthy, has revealed a new NSFW Red Band trailer and poster. Check out The Boss Red Band trailer below, along with the poster in the gallery, for the April 8, 2016 release.

The Boss stars the Academy Award-nominated McCarthy (Bridesmaids, The Heat) as a titan of industry who is sent to prison after she’s caught for insider trading. When she emerges ready to rebrand herself as America’s latest sweetheart, not everyone she screwed over is so quick to forgive and forget. McCarthy is joined by a cast that includes Kristen Bell (“Veronica Mars,” Frozen), Peter Dinklage (“Game of Thrones,” Pixels), Kathy Bates (Tammy, “American Horror Story”) and Cecily Strong (“SNL”).

Based on an original character created by McCarthy, The Boss is directed by Ben Falcone (Tammy) and is written by McCarthy and Falcone alongside their Groundlings collaborator, Steve Mallory. It is produced by McCarthy and Falcone through their On the Day productions and Will Ferrell, Adam McKay and Chris Henchy through their Gary Sanchez Productions.
