UPDATE: Dwayne Johnson just confirmed on his Instagram that he’ll produce and star in Jumanji. The actor and his production company, Seven Bucks Productions, plan to “edge up the script.” There’s still no word if Kevin Hart will co-star. Our original story from April 16, 2016 follows.
Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart star in this summer’s comedy Central Intelligence together, but before that movie even hits theaters, they’re already considering another collaboration. Johnson and Hart are in early talks for Jake Kasdan‘s new adaptation of Jumanji, which was previously turned into a movie back in 1995.
Learn more about Johnson and Hart potentially joining the Jumanji cast after the jump.

Last night brought the MTV Movie Awards to the televisions of teenagers and people with nothing better to do on a Sunday night. Other than the reveal of a new clip from Captain America: Civil War, an outstanding new trailer for Suicide Squad, and a second teaser trailer for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, memorable moments from the show were few and far between. But the few that were memorable at least brought some laughs. Oh, and some rap too.
Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart (who hosted the show) delivered a rap to pay tribute to the movies of 2015, and they even threw some shade at the Oscars by pointing out they were honoring the movies that viewers had actually seen. In addition, Will Smith was given the MTV equivalent of lifetime achievement known as the Generation Award. But before he was given the honor, The Lonely Island honored him as only they could. Watch both of the MTV Movie Awards rap videos below. Read More »

In real life, it’s hard to imagine anyone disliking Dwayne Johnson, much less wanting to pick on him. He’s the kind of star everyone loves, from your mom to your best friend to your kid brother. But in the new trailer for Central Intelligence, he’s a former outcast named Bob who was bullied in high school. One of the few people to show him kindness, in fact, was Calvin (Kevin Hart), then the big man on campus.
20 years later, Bob resurfaces as a buff, handsome CIA agent. And he needs Calvin’s help. Never mind that Calvin, now a mild-mannered accountant, wants nothing to do with the wild and unpredictable case Bob’s working on. Watch the latest Central Intelligence trailer after the jump. Read More »

Illumination Entertainment’s The Secret Life of Pets promises to reveal just what these creatures get up to when we’re not around, and the answers so far have ranged from obvious (eating human food they aren’t supposed to) to shocking (headbanging to heavy metal). Now the latest trailer starts to shape those cute little secrets into an actual story.
Louis C.K. voices Max, a terrier living in New York City. He loves life with his owner Katie (Ellie Kemper), and is dismayed when she brings home a new “brother” for Max, a big sloppy mutt named Duke (Eric Stonestreet). One thing leads to another, and before they know it Max and Duke find themselves caught up in an army of abandoned pets led by a bunny named Snowball (Kevin Hart).

Everyone claims to know their pets — their likes, their dislikes, their habits and personality quirks — but do we really? Or are we just projecting our own ideas and preferences onto a bunch of unamused creatures? Universal’s upcoming The Secret Life of Pets posits that there’s a lot more to these animals than we might suspect. Maybe they have feelings we don’t understand. Maybe they actually get up to all kinds of forbidden mischief while we’re out. Maybe they’re quietly plotting to get their revenge on us, the unsuspecting suckers.
The latest The Secret Life of Pets teaser helps us get to know, really know, one of these pets, a bunny named Snowball voiced by Kevin Hart (who, as we’ve already discussed, is Universal’s favorite star this year). Watch it after the jump. Read More »

Universal Pictures will be all about Kevin Hart in 2016. The studio kicks off the Year of Hart with Ride Along 2 this weekend, keeps it rolling with The Secret Life of Pets this summer, and will finish this fall with his new standup special, Kevin Hart: What Now?. We’ve already seen trailers for the first two, and today it’s What Now?‘s turn to get the spotlight. Watch the Kevin Hart What Now teaser trailer after the jump. Read More »
Just a few weeks ago, a new trailer for Ride Along 2 showed Ice Cube and Kevin Hart embarking on another case in Miami. But that wasn’t enough for Universal, because they released a new trailer with the must-see Creed over the Thanksgiving weekend. This one has more Ken Jeong, lamb burgers, and an alligator. That sounds wacky, right?

Teaming up Kevin Hart with Ice Cube in Ride Along worked for some people, and the movie was enough of a box office hit to warrant a sequel next year. Personally, it just wasn’t what I was looking for as far as quality comedy writing goes. However, as someone who isn’t really a fan of Hart’s comedy, the first trailer for Central Intelligence, teaming him up with Dwayne Johnson, actually looks like it’s going to be a lot of fun. Watch!

Dwayne Johnson may have the physique of an action hero, but underneath all those bulging muscles there’s a comedy star just waiting to break free. Or at least that’s what Dodgeball director Rawson Marshall Thurber is banking on in his new movie. Central Intelligence pairs Johnson with comedy A-lister Kevin Hart — and then has Johnson be the funny one, and Hart act as the straight man. Talk about a plot twist. Check out the first Central Intelligence images after the jump.

If you thought that Kevin Hart already proved that he was worthy of the love of Ice Cube‘s sister (Tika Sumpter) in Ride Along, think again. Just because Ben Barber (Hart) gained a little common ground with man of the law James Payton (Cube) doesn’t mean the latter is ready to become brothers-in-law, whether it’s through marriage or at the police station.
But when a drug trafficking problem requires some serious attention in Miami, for some reason Ben is allowed to tag along with James, making for his own tropical training day to prove his worth as a viable husband and police officer. Like most comedy sequels, it’s basically the same formula repeated again with slightly different jokes, and this new Ride Along 2 trailer doesn’t do anything to make us think otherwise. Read More »
