Universal Pictures dropped his second look at the action-comedy Ride Along, which stars Ice Cube, Kevin Hart and Tika Sumpter.
For fans of Hart's comedy, this is another potential home run for the pint sized talent. In this buddy cop pic, he plays Ben, a man who must prove his worth to his girlfriend's brother, James (Ice Cube). When Ben finally gets accepted into the academy, he thinks he's earned the seasoned policeman's respect and asks for his blessing to marry Angela (Tika Sumpter).
Knowing that by engaging in a dangerous situation with James will prove whether he has the chutzpah to take care of his sister, these two go on a pure hell ride straight out of an Antoine Fuqua flick. You can actually go on a cruise with Cube, today (11/8), as he's taken over the @YahooMovies Instagram. Follow to see what craziness jumps off!
Without spoiling any of the new scenes, go ahead and press play below:
The shotgun bit and the one with Benjamin Flores Jr. roasting Hart on the playground are the best highlights included in this trailer. There's also plenty of gunplay, gun talk, fights and exploding objects. We truly get a look at just how much crazy stuff Ben gets into when he enters Atlanta's criminal underworld.
Is it too early to tell whether Ice Cube and Kevin Hart's chemistry can warrant a second flick?
Directed by Tim Story (Think Like a Man), Ride Along hits January 17 and will also star John Leguizamo (Kick-Ass 2), Laurence Fishburne (Man of Steel 2), Bryan Callen (The Hangover), and Bruce McGill (Rizzoli & Isles).
