What could go wrong with a buddy comedy/action film that has the unbeatable duo of Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart? As the Central Intelligence trailer shows, nothing.
The trailer opens with a young CGI-inflated Dwayne Johnson singing in the shower. That’s when the high school bullies unleash their wrath and drag him in front of the entire school – very fat and very naked. It is left to the “big man on campus” Kevin Hart to offer him his jacket.
As the principal remarks, “There is no coming back from it.” We know what he doesn’t – this is Dwayne Johnson we are talking about, there will be a comeback.
Before we reveal more, watch the trailer.
The story is as follows: The story follows a one-time bullied geek who grew up to be a lethal CIA agent (Johnson), coming home for his high school reunion. Claiming to be on a top-secret case, he enlists the help of the former “big man on campus” (Kevin Hart), now an accountant who misses his glory days. But before the staid numbers-cruncher realizes what he’s getting into, it’s too late to get out, as his increasingly unpredictable new friend drags him through a world of shoot-outs, double-crosses and espionage that could get them both killed in more ways than he can count.’
Scott Stuber, Peter Principato and Paul Young are producing and Central Intelligence is directed by Rawson Marshall Thurber, who was behind Dodgeball and We’re the Millers.
The comedy hits theatres on June 17.
