“Tammy” has some fun new posters out, and guess what they spell? “Tammy,” of course.
It seems like the trend in posters is to have posters that work together, which can provide more visual interest for movie-goers trying to figure out what to watch. But, unlike other posters, this poster set doesn’t show anything or anyone new, such as other characters or different scenes. All you see is Melissa McCarthy as Tammy. And, since she the title character, you could argue that she’s all you need to see.
McCarthy stars in this film alongside Susan Sarandon as a woman who has had the worst day ever and, after breaking into a fast-food restaurant, goes on a cross-country trip with her grandmother (Sarandon).
“Tammy (McCarthy) is having a bad day. She’s totaled her clunker car, gotten fired from her thankless job at a greasy burger joint, and instead of finding comfort at home, finds her husband getting comfortable with the neighbor in her own house.
It’s time to take her boom box and book it. The bad news is she’s broke and without wheels. The worse news is her grandma, Pearl (Sarandon), is her only option—with a car, cash, and an itch to see Niagara Falls. Not exactly the escape Tammy had in mind. But on the road, with Pearl riding shotgun, it may be just what Tammy needs.”
The film also stars Allison Janney, Gary Cole, Dan Aykroyd, Kathy Bates, Sandra Oh, Toni Collette and Nat Faxon. “Tammy” is Ben Falcone’s directorial debut.
“Tammy” will be in theaters July 2.
