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. There is no way for me to turn that off. So you might want to check that your speaker volume is at a respectable level before you hit the jump.
Plot Synopsis: Set in New York City, The Other Guys follows Detective Allen Gamble (Will Ferrell), a forensic accountant who’s more interested in paperwork than hitting the streets, and Detective Terry Hoitz (Mark Wahlberg), a tough guy who has been stuck with Allen as his partner ever since an unfortunate run-in with Derek Jeter. Allen and Terry idolize the city’s top cops, Danson and Highsmith (Dwayne Johnson and Samuel L. Jackson), but when an opportunity arises for the Other Guys to step up, things don’t quite go as planned.
The Other Guys will hit theaters on August 6th 2010.
