Mila Kunis and Kate McKinnon Are 'Totes BFFs' in New Look at 'The Spy Who Dumped Me' (Exclusive)

By

"How would I be as a spy?" Mila Kunis asks herself in this exclusive look behind the scenes of The Spy Who Dumped Me. "I'd be killed."

In the comedy, Kunis plays a woman who is, well, dumped by a spy (played by Justin Theroux), only to become entangled in life-or-death hijinks with her best bud (Kate McKinnon). Or as McKinnon puts it, "It's two totes BFFs who get wrapped up in an international espionage adventure -- and who doesn't want that?"

A new trailer for The Spy Who Dumped Me reveals more action, more laughs and "the Beyoncé of the government" as the duo, along with a trusty CIA agent played by Outlander hunk Sam Heughan, try to stop an international terrorist group and save the world. But, as the actresses told ET, their alter egos aren't exactly 007s, no matter how much a** they occasionally kick. First, check out the new preview:

"Spy-ish," Kunis told ET's Nischelle Turner backstage at CinemaCon. "Spy adjacent."

"Up-and-coming spies," McKinnon chimed in.

"Practicing spies," Kunis said.

"We're trying spies," McKinnon said.

Though their status as international women of mystery may be up for debate, their BFF chemistry is not. "We are the duo that you didn't know you needed," Kunis confirmed, to which McKinnon giddily told ET, "I love when people say that and now it's being said about us. Holy shoot!"

Here is the movie's official synopsis:

"Audrey (Kunis) and Morgan (McKinnon), two thirty-year-old best friends in Los Angeles, are thrust unexpectedly into an international conspiracy when Audrey’s ex-boyfriend shows up at their apartment with a team of deadly assassins on his trail. Surprising even themselves, the duo jump into action, on the run throughout Europe from assassins and a suspicious-but-charming British agent, as they hatch a plan to save the world."

The Spy Who Dumped Me is in theaters on Aug. 3.
