FRESH FROM HIS US BOX OFFICE SUCCESS,
COMEDIC SENSATION KEVIN HART
HEADS TO AUSTRALIA FOR THE RELEASE OF HILARIOUS NEW ACTION-COMEDY RIDE ALONG
On March 5, break-out comedy star Kevin Hart jets into Australia to promote his hilarious new comedy RIDE ALONG, co-starring legendary rapper Ice Cube.
Ride Along debuted at number 1 at the US box office last month and broke all records to become January’s highest grossing film of all time. To celebrate the highly anticipated Australian release of the film, Kevin will bring his distinctive comedic talents downunder - introducing an army of fans already familiar with his comedy and work on the hit TV show Real Husbands of Hollywood to his newest comedy blockbuster.
Hart will be available for photo and press opportunities in Melbourne March 5-6 and Sydney March 6-7.
Kevin Hart and Ice Cube lead the lineup in Ride Along, the new film from the director and the producer of the blockbuster comedy Think Like a Man.
For the past two years, high-school security guard Ben (Hart) has been trying to show decorated APD detective James (Cube) that he’s more than just a video-game junkie who’s unworthy of James’ sister, Angela (Tika Sumpter). When Ben finally gets accepted into the academy, he thinks he’s earned the seasoned policeman’s respect and asks for his blessing to marry Angela.
Knowing that a ride along will demonstrate if Ben has what it takes to take care of his sister, James invites him on a shift designed to scare the hell out of the trainee. But when the wild night leads them to the most notorious criminal in the city, James will find that his new partner’s rapid-fire mouth is just as dangerous as the bullets speeding at it.
John Leguizamo and Laurence Fishburne join the cast of the action-comedy directed by Tim Story.
