Central Intelligence movie poster with Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart

Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart star in the first teaser trailer for Central Intelligence an action comedy that hits theaters next June. The duo star as former high school friends who have taken very different paths in life. Dwayne plays Bob who was an overweight dancing machine in high school who was bullied mercilessly. After leaving school he got a growth spurt and ended up in top physical shape. He also joined the CIA.

Kevin plays Calvin, who was the high school's most popular guy. Everyone loved him and he was a huge success. Calvin ended up as an uptight accountant who really hates danger and risk of any kind. When Bob and Calvin meet at the 20th high school reunion, Calvin's life changes forever. Bob needs his help for a dangerous mission and won't take no for an answer. It turns out Bob has been framed for a murder he didn't commit and that's why he is desperate for non-agency help.

The teaser doesn't explain much of that backstory, but it's very funny any way. The two have great chemistry together. It's nearly impossible to steal a scene from Kevin Hart, but the Rock is the one guy who is able to do it.

The film also stars Aaron Paul, Amy Ryan, Brett Azar, Megan Park, Ryan Hansen, Tim Griffin and Slaine. the film was direted by Rawson Marshall Thurber (Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story (2004), We're the Millers) from a script he co-wrote with Ike Barinholtz, David Stassen and Peter Steinfeld. The film is set for release on June 17, 2016. If it's half as funny as the trailer, it's going to be a hit. take a look:
