The latest trailer for the upcoming Ice Cube / Kevin Hart collaboration, Ride Along, has been released.
The film follows the saga of the past two years where high-school security guard Ben (Hart) has been trying to show decorated APD detective James (Cube) that he’s more than just a video-game junkie who’s unworthy of James’ sister, Angela (Tika Sumpter). 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.
Knowing that a ride along will demonstrate if Ben has what it takes to take care of his sister, James invites him on a shift designed to scare the hell out of the trainee. But when the wild night leads them to the most notorious criminal in the city, James will find that his new partner’s rapid-fire mouth is just as dangerous as the bullets speeding at it.
The film is directed by Tim Story and produced by Will Packer, alongside Cube, Matt Alvarez and Larry Brezner. It also co-stars John Leguizamo, Bruce McGill, Sumpter, Bryan Callen and Laurence Fishburne.
Ride Along hits theaters on January 17, 2013.
