Here's a new trailer for Universal's upcoming comedy "Identity Thief," where Jason Bateman plays Sandy Bigelow an unsuspecting businessman, who discovers that someone has stolen his identity (Melissa McCarthy) and is buying extravagant things in his name. With little-to-no help from the police, Sandy makes plans to find the imposter himself by traveling to Florida and bringing her to justice.
"Identity Thief" is set to open in theaters on February 8th.
Unlimited funds have allowed Diana (McCarthy) to live it up on the outskirts of Miami, where the queen of retail buys whatever strikes her fancy. There’s only one glitch: The ID she’s using to finance these sprees reads “Sandy Bigelow Patterson” ... and it belongs to an accounts rep (Bateman) who lives halfway across the U.S. With only one week to hunt down the con artist before his world implodes, the real Sandy Bigelow Patterson heads south to confront the woman with an all-access pass to his life. And as he attempts to bribe, coax and wrangle her the 2,000 miles to Denver, one easy target will discover just how tough it is to get your name back.
