Sony has finally released a teaser trailer for the upcoming Will Ferrell/Mark Wahlberg-starrer Adam McKay-directed action/comedy The Other Guys. Strangely, we’re getting the teaser after the release of a funny motion poster a few weeks ago. So while this is the first teaser trailer, we’ve technically already been teased, in full motion.
The teaser does a good job at introducing the concept of the film — they aren’t the star no-holds-barred cops we’re used to. These are “The Other Guys”. And while the concept is great, the cast is awesome, I laughed less than I had expected to (and this is a guy who laughed at that short motion poster). Check out the trailer for yourself, embedded after the jump. Please leave your thoughts in the comments below.
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.
Watch the trailer in High Definition on Yahoo. The Other Guys will hit theaters on August 6th 2010.
