Exclusive | Watch Jason Statham Get Animated in ‘Spy’

It occurs to us on today of all days that there may be some people out there who don’t like Jason Statham. We “probably” because we don’t generally associate with them. The hardened badass star of The Transporter and Crank has developed a well-earned reputation over the years as a no-nonsense machine of cinematic violence, and we salute him for that. Especially if he’s going to lampoon his deadpan persona as outrageously as he did in Paul Feig’s espionage comedy Spy, which rocked the box office earlier this summer.

Fans who saw Spy no doubt remember the film’s comic centerpiece, in which Jason Statham – as semi-retired CIA agent Rick Ford – recounts the many ludicrous adventures he’s survived out in the field. These adventures included sewing his severed arm back on with his other arm, and watching the only woman he ever loved fall out of a plane and… well, that part would actually be depressing if it wasn’t so implausible and ironic.

In the film, Statham leaves these adventures to the audience’s imagination. But in the upcoming Blu-ray release of Spy, those adventures have been animated by 1A4 Studios, so you can finally get a sense of how it “really” happened. And here at Crave, we’ve got your exclusive first look!

Give it a watch, check out Spy on Blu-ray and DVD on September 29, and enjoy the mini-bar.

From the Press Release:

Queen of Comedy Melissa McCarthy “in her funniest movie yet” (Leonard Maltin, LeonardMaltin.com) embarks on the mission of a lifetime as secret agent Susan Cooper in SPY. The September 29th Blu-ray release will include two versions of the film – Theatrical and never-before-seen Unrated Cut.  The DVD will feature the Theatrical version.  Both the Theatrical version and Unrated Cut of Spy will also be available on Digital HD September 4th. The global ensemble cast features Jason Statham, Jude Law and Rose Byrne who deliver hysterical performances in this summer blockbuster hit that totaled over $100 million in the domestic box office. The movie was adored by critics who gave it an astounding 95% fresh rating on RottenTomatoes.com.

McCarthy is armed and hilarious in this “outrageously entertaining” (Peter Travers, Rolling Stone) comedy hit from director Paul Feig (The Heat, Bridesmaids). Deskbound CIA analyst Susan Cooper (McCarthy) is about to become the world’s newest — and unlikeliest — secret weapon. When her partner (Law) falls off the grid and another top agent (Statham) is compromised, Susan volunteers to go deep undercover and bring down a deadly arms dealer. Loaded with wise-cracking action and adventure, SPY is a mission impossible to resist!

Unlike Susan’s absurd yet effective secret agent gadgets, the SPY Unrated Blu-ray can barely conceal its massive amounts of bonus features, including two gag reels, fifteen alternate scenes and an all-new Unrated Cut with an extra 10 minutes! With more than two hours of never-before-seen footage, fans of the film will be able to join the fun on set as the cast cracks up while doing Feig’s bidding, learn just how handsy the world of espionage can get for McCarthy, and see just how all those bats made it into the CIA Headquarters and onto Susan’s desserts! And don’t forget to check out the 15 classified alternate scenes and three redacted scenes, featuring Jason Statham as you’ve never seen him and outrageous performances by the rest of the cast, including Miranda Hart, Allison Janney, Bobby Cannavale, Peter Serafinowicz, and 50 Cent. Fans can also join the filmmakers, including Feig and producer Jessie Henderson, as they talk about how the summer’s funniest film came to life while you watch it.
