Actor Dwayne Johnson has come a pretty long way since his heyday in wrestling and with a bolstering career that has propelled him to bonafide action stardom, which is fitting even while doling out major laughs in the process. In an effort with the latter, teaming up with actor and comedian Kevin Hart who gave moviegoers two hit comedies in a row with Ride Along and its sequel, serves chuckles aplenty with the current campaign now running for Rawson Marshall Thurber’s Central Intelligence.
June 17 is the date to catch the pair with Johnson in the role of a once bullied fat kid in high school whose commitment to change made him a muscle bound and deadly top tier agent for CIA, and ultimately on a top-secret mission and in need of serious help from the man who was once the coolest kid in the halls, played by by Hart. Judging by the trailers, the film certainly goes the extra mile to make Johnson stand out in something less than typical, even if it means laying Johnson’s face on an internet star to play two different versions of the same character, and Hart knows how to make a scene even in a role slightly more serious than what we usually see him in.
We’ll see how this goes. Watch the newest trailer below now!
