Scheduled release: June 16th
Director: Rawson Marshall Thurber
Cast: Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, Amy Ryan

Funny things happen around Kevin Hart, whether in real or reel life. For Central Intelligence, Hart plays Calvin, an accountant who has settled on the humdrum of life after being a former star on campus. Bob (Dwayne Johnson), a lethal CIA agent who used to be the butt of jokes in college, plucks Calvin from obscurity and enlists him as a partner for a dangerous mission. The antics from this oddball duo will fill cinema halls with laughter and establish Johnson’s credentials as an actor who’s as much brains as he is brawn.
