Central Intelligence Trailer, poster & images starring Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart.

It’s impossible to miss the massive size difference between Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson (who is 6-foot-5, 265 pounds) and Kevin Hart (5-foot-4, 145 pounds) in photos from their upcoming comedy Central Intelligence.

Two of the most ubiquitous stars right now—Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart—are wildly contrasting sizes, so their buddy movie has a built-in visual gag.If you follow Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson on any of his social media accounts (and you really should), then you’ll know that he’s been posting funny videos from the set of Central Intelligence for some time now.The trailer for “Central Intelligence” just hit Facebook, and there’s a chubby version of The Rock in it who will haunt your dreams for eternity. So it makes sense he’d try it with someone else, which means we get Hart and Dwayne Johnson starring in the first teaser for action comedy Central Intelligence. The upcoming action comedy is directed by Rawson Marshall Thurber (We’re the Millers, Dodgeball) and will team the WWE Superstar up with Kevin Hart.

The film has something to do with a CIA agent (Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson) and an accountant (Kevin Hart) saving the world, but I can’t be sure because all the progress I made tracking a plot was lost when a voluptuous, CGI Dwayne J appeared on screen, dancing naked to En Vogue’s “My Lovin’ (You’re Never Gonna Get It).” From Will Ferrell in the frankly underwhelming Get Hard to Ice Cube in Ride Along – and soon its sequel – though none of the actor’s on-screen confidantes come close to Bob.

In the movie, Johnson will be playing Bob, a former fat kid who was bullied in high school before undergoing a transformation which ultimately led to him becoming a CIA operative. Played by Dwayne Johnson in the uproarious first trailer for Central Intelligence, Hart’s latest number two is a whole new kettle of fish, and the results are rather hilarious. Plus, he’s in the CIA and is looking to recruit the former most popular dude (Hart) who is now an accountant pining for his glory days, for some help on a case. Which won’t end well… The pair seems to have a decent comic chemistry, with Hart his usual livewire self and Johnson digging out a childlike glee about the bullets flying, the cars crashing and the explosions that come with his job. The one time cool kid is now a boring old accountant, but when Bob is framed for a crime he didn’t commit, these one-time enemies are forced to team up.

Championing the almost effortless chemistry between Johnson and Hart, it’s the latter actor who plays the part of a former high school jock who crosses paths with an old classmate in Johnson’s towering Bob. No, it’s the cheap laugh that comes after a flashback to high school, in which Hart’s character was massively popular, and the Rock was pudgy and had braces. I said that we had to do it.” The comedy follows Bob (Johnson), who grew up being bullied as a nerdy, overweight kid but eventually blossomed physically and became a lethal CIA agent. Central Intelligence also stars Aaron Paul, Amy Ryan, Danielle Nicollet, Ryan Hansen, and Slaine, and it’s currently set to be released on June 17th, 2016.

Anyway, Central Intelligence still looks pretty awesome. (Extra points for the tag line that makes cheeky use of each star’s last name.) Look for it in theaters June 17, 2016. That was his role,” Hart told USA Today. “It’s expanding the acting portfolio I am trying to build.” Revolving around a precious batch of military secrets, the actual reason for Hart and Johnson’s partnership in Central Intelligence is merely the MacGuffin driving some truly brilliant comedic interplay between the pair, and if there was ever a money shot to sell an upcoming comedy, it’s a CG shot of a pudgy Dwayne Johnson singing in the shower. While the movie looks to be your standard “buddy cop” flick, even if one of them isn’t actually a cop, it’s the strength of the leads that will either make or break it. Ride Along 2 is due out in January, meaning we will have seen Hart play a very similar character twice, and once in the same year before this movie comes out. No special effects were needed for the numerous times Johnson had to lift Hart in gags. “He’s as big as you’d think he is, and he did a great job pulling the comedy off, making it believable,” Hart adds. “But it’s not like I’m going to be taking him on the road with me.”
