Charlotte's Film Club: Spy

It's Thursday, meaning its the last day of Charlotte's Spy-themed Film Club. Today Charlotte's final pick of the week is the aptly named "Spy" from 2015.

In this comedy Melissa McCarthy stars as an agent who has spent her entire career as a desk jockey even with full field training. Using high-tech equipment and a hidden earpiece, Susan is the guardian angel who helps Bradley Fine (Jude Law) avoid danger. However, when Bradley is assassinated by Bulgarian arms dealer Rayna Boyanov (Rose Byrne), Susan wrangles her way into her first undercover assignment to help capture Boyanov and avenge Bradley.

Jason Statham, Miranda Hart and Morena Baccarin also star.

Charlotte's Film Club: The Man from U.N.C.L.E

More Spy films on the Film Club this week, as today Charlotte chooses stylish Guy Ritchie thriller "The Man from U.N.C.L.E" to be the point of discussion.

Set during the height of the Cold War, a mysterious criminal organization planning to use nuclear weapons to upset the world's balance of power leads to an unlikely alliance between the US and Russia. CIA agent Napoleon Solo (Henry Cavill) and KGB agent Illya Kuryakin (Armie Hammer) are forced to put aside their hostilities and work together to stop the world from being thrown into chaos, and  their only lead is the daughter of a missing German scientist, whom they must find soon to prevent a global catastrophe.

Alicia Vikander, Elizabeth Debicki and Hugh Grant also star.

Charlotte's Film Club: Johnny English

The espionage filled Film Club continues again today, as today Charlotte and Danny look at 2003 spy comedy Johnny English, featuring Rowan Atkinson.

When a villain intent on stealing Britain's Crown Jewels has the country's top undercover agents murdered, mediocre spy Johnny English is the only one available to prevent further mayhem. But even with help from quick-thinking sidekick Bough, the goofy agent lands himself in one precarious situation after another. Only when he meets up with Interpol crime-fighter Lorna Campbell is Johnny able to really save the day.

Along with Atkinson, John Malkovich, Ben Stiller and Natalie Imbruglia also star.
