First Official Look at Kevin Hart and Dwayne Johnson in 'Central Intelligence' Revealed

Johnson stars as an overweight man who turns into a deadly CIA operative while Hart plays a former cool guy who grows up to become a straight-laced accountant.

AceShowbiz - Warner Bros. has released the first official photos of "Central Intelligence", giving a look at Dwayne "%cThe Rock%" Johnson and %cKevin Hart% as old friends who team up in an unlikely way. Making its way out via USA Today, one of the photos shows Johnson sitting on a sofa while carrying Hart.

Another image sees Hart in a trolley in front of Johnson while raising both of his hands in the air. Meanwhile, the last photo captures the two standing face to face with Johnson dressing up like an army.

Johnson plays Bob, who grew up as a nerdy being bullied because he's overweight but eventually transforms into a badass deadly CIA agent. When Bob attends his 20 year high school reunion, he runs into Calvin (Hart), a straight-laced accountant, who once became a cool guy in the campus. When Bob is framed for a crime he didn't commit, he asks Calvin to help him clear his name.

Hart revealed that it was actually hard for him to play the humorless accountant. "There were moments I had to pull back when I wanted to be funny. But it wasn't my role in this film. That was his role," Hart said. "It's expanding the acting portfolio I am trying to build."

Hart also praised Johnson, who was successful to pull off the comedy. "He's as big as you'd think he is, and he did a great job pulling the comedy off, making it believable," Hart said. "But it's not like I'm going to be taking him on the road with me."

Rawson Marshall Thurber directs the movie with %cAaron Paul%, %cAmy Ryan%, %cDanielle Nicolet% and %cTim Griffin% in the cast. The action comedy movie will be released in North America on June 17, 2016.
