Latest Red Band Trailer For Get Hard

There’s always a worry that comedies are a little quick to lay out all their best jokes in the barrage of trailers that precede their arrival in cinemas, and yet we hope against all reason that the eventual movie will contain plenty of fresh laugh-worthy material. We’re reserving judgment on Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart’s new one, Get Hard, which has another Red Band – and therefore technically NSFW – promo out in the world.

Get Hard finds Ferrell in full-on bumbler mode as James King, a millionaire hedge fund manager living a seemingly perfect life – big house, flashy gadgets and a beautiful wife (Alison Brie). But then he’s nailed by the Feds for fraud and sentenced to ten years in San Quentin maximum-security prison. Offered 30 days to get his affairs in order, King turns to Darnell Lewis (Hart) to prepare him for the thug life behind bars.

There’s just one small problem: Darnell is a hard-working small businessman who hasn’t ever been in trouble with the law and knows as much about surviving in prison as King. Well, maybe a tiny bit more... But sensing an opportunity, he takes on the job.

With Tropic Thunder writer Etan Cohen stepping up to direct here and Tip “T.I.” Harris, Craig T. Nelson, Matt Walsh and Edwina Findley Dickerson in the cast, Get Hard arrives on March 27. You can find a set visit piece on the film in the current **Empire.
