This first trailer for CENTRAL INTELLIGENCE has a little Hart and big Johnson!

2 min read


Just a few days after we got the first pics for Central Intelligence, the first trailer for the upcoming buddy action comedy has now dropped. And I must admit, it is a tad underwhelming. Between the two of them, Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart should have enough on-screen charisma to melt patio furniture with a single pec pop or shouty joke, but I’m really not feeling the chemistry as much as I thought I would.

Maybe it’s the role reversal of Hart playing the straight man here while Johnson delivers the laugh that’s feeling off. Or I’m just being a wet blanket and you may find this a whole lot funnier. Check out the trailer below and sound off on what you think in the comments below.

“Central Intelligence” 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” (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.

It’s official: My nightmares for the next few weeks are just going to be wall to wall fat Dwayne Johnsons.
