Comedian Kevin Hart revealed on Instagram recently the official poster of his upcoming film Ride Along starring Ice Cube and Tika Sumpter.

As previously reported, Hart plays a fast-talking security guard who joins his girlfriend’s brother—a hot-tempered cop—to patrol the streets of Atlanta, and gets himself entangled in the officer’s latest case.  Now, in order to prove that he deserves his future bride, he must survive the most insane 24 hours of his life.

Ride Along Poster 2For the past two years, high-school rent-a-cop Ben (Hart) has been trying to show decorated APD detective Kurt (Cube) that he’s more than just a video-game junkie who’s unworthy of Kurt’s 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, Kurt 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 killer in the city, Kurt 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.
