My Spy, the new family comedy starring Dave Bautista, will debut on Amazon Prime Video on June 26th. The film has seen many release date changes and shifts in the last year or so and was picked up by Amazon in April. The film was initially supposed to release in August of last year, then again from this past January to March 13th, and then delayed again to April 17th. That would have seen My Spy take the date Trolls World Tour abandoned to replace the latest Bond film No Time to Die, which itself was delayed until November. You can see the trailer for My Spy below.
My Spy Trailer and Synopsis
"My Spy follows JJ a hardened CIA operative (Dave Bautista) who has been demoted and finds himself at the mercy of a precocious 9-year-old girl, named Sophie (Chloe Coleman) where he has been sent undercover begrudgingly to surveil her family. When Sophie discovers hidden cameras in her apartment she uses her tech-savviness to locate where the surveillance operation is set. In exchange for not blowing JJ's cover, Sophie convinces him to spend time with her and teach her to be a spy. Despite his reluctance, JJ finds he is no match for Sophie's disarming charm and wit."
My Spy has already opened in some territories, where it was doing pretty good business. The digital release ends the saga of one of the most date-challenged films in recent memory, not named The New Mutants. Dave Bautista is quickly becoming the new Dwayne Johnson, which may be an unfair comparison but an easy one to make since they both got their start in the WWE. It feels like he is following The Rock's Hollywood Playbook, which means he will join The Fast Saga in part 10. Both he and his co-star Chole Coleman have great chemistry here, and the film looks like fun. It is a shame that we can't see this in theaters around the country, but this may work out better for the movie in the long run.
