The trailer, released Wednesday, intros the duo as masters of spycraft with the proclamation "In 2018, women are killing it," followed by a James Bond-style montage with Michael Buble singing Nina Simone's "Feeling Good."

That tone is quickly eliminated as Kunis and McKinnon -- who play best friends -- fail at trying to abscond a car because Kunis cannot drive a stick shift and the car crashes into a newstand at 3 miles per hour.

It turns out that the pair has been unexpectedly thrust into an international conspiracy when Justin Theroux, portraying the ex-boyfriend of Kunis' character and a former CIA agent, shows up at her apartment with a team of deadly assassins on his trail.

They find themselves on the run in Europe from the assassins and a British agent, played by Sam Heughan. By the end of the trailer, they're driving like pros and offing villains. "Oh my god, oh my god, I just killed someone," Kunis shrieks while running through the street.

Susanna Fogel directed from a script she wrote with David Iserson with Ron Howard and Brian Grazer producers. The film shot in Budapest last summer and is set for Australian release end of August 2018.
