Get Hard Gets A New Trailer Starring Kevin Hart & Will Ferrell

20 December 2014 8:30 AM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Kevin Hart schools Will Ferrell on how to survive prison in this brand new trailer for Get Hard.

When millionaire hedge fund manager James (Will Ferrell) is nailed for fraud and bound for a stretch in San Quentin, the judge gives him 30 days to get his affairs in order. Desperate, he turns to Darnell (Kevin Hart) to prep him for a life behind bars. But despite James’ one-percenter assumptions, Darnell is a hard-working small business owner who has never received a parking ticket, let alone been to prison.

Together, the two men do whatever it takes for James to “get hard” and, in the process, discover how wrong they were about a lot of things – including each other. Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart join forces in the feature comedy Get Hard, also starring Tip “T.I.” Harris, Alison Brie, and Craig T. Nelson.

The film is directed by Etan Cohen, making »

'Get Hard' Trailer: Kevin Hart Teaches Will Ferrell How to Survive Prison

19 December 2014 5:00 PM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

There's a joke in Horrible Bosses where the three dumb, would-be criminals turn to the first tough-looking guy they can find in a bar (Jamie Foxx) and assume he's a career criminal and as such try to ask him for advice on how to get away with murder. Well, Get Hard looks like that joke stretched out to an entire feature film, though that's not necessarily a bad thing, since this is the directorial debut of Idiocracy and Tropic Thunder screenwriter Etan Cohen. Get Hard stars Will Ferrell as a hedge fund millionaire who is about to be sent away to a maximum-security prison for committing fraud, and he's so scared of going to jail that he turns to the first nonwhite guy he can find (Kevin Hart) and wrongly assumes he's an expert on how to survive prison...

19 December 2014 4:39 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Warner Bros. has released the first trailer for “Get Hard,” starring Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart, three months before its March 27 release.

Ferrell plays a successful businessman who is sentenced to 10 years in a maximum security prison for fraud, panics and hires the first African-American he meets to teach him how to “get hard” for prison time.

Even though that man (Hart) is anything but a criminal, he agrees to take Ferrell’s character under his wing, declaring, “You master these skills — you Will survive in prison.”

Alison Brie co-stars as the fiancee of Ferrell’s character. Etan Cohen directs from a script by Ian Roberts and Jay Martell.

Will Ferrell Is Bound For San Quentin In First Trailer For Get Hard

19 December 2014 11:20 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Warner Bros. has revealed the first trailer for Will Ferrell’s upcoming comedy, Get Hard. From director Etan Cohen, the Gary Sanchez-produced pic looks primed to kickstart Ferrell’s slapstick antics, which have been sorely missing from the cinema calendar as of late.

In the movie, the former SNL star appears as hedge fund manager, James. When the millionaire is indicted for fraud, his impending stint in prison fills him with dread. Luckily, Kevin Hart’s Darnell is on hand to prepare James for all of the experiences that await him behind the bars of San Quentin.

With the first preview now available (via Yahoo! Movies), we’re able to get a sense of what’s in store for the timid chappie while he gets himself ready for prison life. As stories go, the premise overall isn’t that enticing. It simply sounds like a re-hash of countless other »

Kevin Hart Prepares Will Ferrell for Prison in Trailer for 'Get Hard'

19 December 2014 10:40 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"Please, don't sexually assault me, I'm already to sad." After debuting in theaters with Horrible Bosses 2, the trailer for the Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart comedy Get Hard has arrived. While I was hopeful that a teaming of Ferrell with Hart might make my distaste for the latter comedy star go away, that's not even my biggest problem with this trailer. Whether this film had Kevin Hart or not, this just doesn't look that funny. There's a couple amusing moments like Ferrell sadly sitting in a massage chair while drinking a glass of wine, but right now this just feels like a "Saturday Night Live" sketch that will go on far too long. Watch? Here's the first trailer for Etan Coen's Get Hard, originally from Yahoo: Get Hard marks the feature directorial debut of Etan Cohen (writer of Men in Black III, Tropic Thunder, Idiocracy) with a script he »

Hilarious Trailer for Get Hard with Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart

19 December 2014 10:39 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart team up for an incredibly funny looking comedy called Get Hard, and today we have the first trailer for you to watch that I think you'll enjoy. The movie comes from Tropic Thunder writer Etan Cohen, and the story centers on a millionaire hedge fund manager (Ferrell), who is convicted of fraud. He then recruits the guy who washes his car (Hart) to help him prepare for prison. 

There's a lot of great moments in this trailer. I just hope they saved the best stuff for the movie. In an interview with USA Today, Hart talks about the film and how they did a ton of improv:

“Come on, man, you have Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart, you know doggone well we’re not staying on the script. There was tons of improv. Sometimes it would fall flat, and then we’d nail it — home run. »

Get Hard Trailer: Will Ferrell Enlists Kevin Hart to Prepare Him for Prison

19 December 2014 9:53 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Warner Bros. has released the first Get Hard trailer for the upcoming crime comedy.  Marking the directorial debut of Tropic Thunder and Men in Black 3 scribe Etan Cohen, the film stars Will Ferrell as a Bernie Madoff-type wealthy investment banker who enlists the man who washes his car (Kevin Hart) to help prepare him for a maximum security prison sentence.  The comedic pairing of Ferrell and Hart was already enough to make this worth seeing, but thankfully the movie also looks to be genuinely good.  There's a twist on the premise as described that feels like a nice touch to keep it from feeling outdated (or offensive, really), and unsurprisingly there are more than a couple of really funny moments on display in this first look trailer. Watch the first Get Hard trailer after the jump.  The film also stars Tip “T.I.” Harris, Alison Brie, and Craig T. Nelson. »

Watch: Kevin Hart Prepares Will Ferrell For Jail Time In The First Trailer For ‘Get Hard’

19 December 2014 9:48 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Will Ferrell has basically made movies out of any number of thin sketches of ideas he’s ever had. What about the prospect of being sentenced to a term at a maximum-security jail where you know you’re toast once you’re inside? Yep, that too! The idea is a nightmare for many, and Ferrell is tackling that concept head on, alongside other notions of race and class, with “Get Hard.” The comedy, directed by Etan Cohen (the screenwriter of “Men In Black 3” and “Tropic Thunder,” making his directorial debut here) is about a Bernie Madoff figure played by Ferrell. He’s nailed for fraud and about to be sent up the river, so in a panic he tries to hire the first African-American he meets with the misguided assumption they’ll know how to “get hard” for prison time. But the first African-American man he meets, played by Kevin Hart, »

Kevin Hart helps Will Ferrell Get Hard in this first trailer

19 December 2014 7:26 AM, PST | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart are two actors who fall into the love 'em or hate 'em category in movies. Ferrell seems to more often be in the love area while there is a lot of hate for Kevin Hart's brand of humor. Personally, I see potential in Kevin Hart if he were to find the right project, but I do see how people could find him annoying. Chances are Get Hard is not going to do much to change that. In the first trailer for Tropic Thunder screenwriter Etan Cohen's directorial debut, Hart »

Title and Casting Details on the Cancelled Ghostbusters 3 Project

17 December 2014 7:58 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Before Paul Feig came around to reboot the Ghostbusters franchise for a new generation and launch a whole new franchise, there was a direct sequel to the original films that was in development for years. That project will never happen at this point, but some details have surfaced on what that sequel would have entailed.

Screenwriter Etan Cohen (Men In Black 3) completed a second Ghostbusters 3 draft. The film's producer, Ivan Reitman, who was attached to direct the film at the time, sent an email to Sony Pictures Chairman Amy Pascal that contained the second draft, and it reveals the title of the movie and his plan for the cast.

There's not much revealed about the plot, but it would have centered on Ray Stanz (Dan Aykroyd), Egon Spengler (Harold Ramis), and Winston Zeddemore (Ernie Hudson) passing the franchise off to a younger generation of Ghostbusters. Sadly, a month after this email was sent, »
