Sony has released a funny motion poster for the upcoming Will Ferrell/Mark Wahlberg-starrer Adam McKay-directed action/comedy The Other Guys. Since we’ve yet to see a trailer for this film, it is definitely worth checking out. I first saw this last week on display at ShoWest in Las Vegas, but it now makes its official online debut on Yahoo.. Hit the jump to watch the clip. Please note, the poster autoplays and autorepeats.

Please excuse the low-fi quality of the images as they were snapped with an iPhone.

Filming on The Other Guys, the ’10 cop comedy from writer/director Adam McKay (Step Brothers, Anchorman) rolls this month in New York, and today sees three new additions to the cast. Formerly entitled The B Team, I’m curious to see what McKay has up his twisted sleeve, because the buddy-cop formula isn’t just asthmatic, it’s cliche to the point of surreality, and he’ll also have Hot Fuzz to contend with.
