It's Kevin Hart's time to shine. The damn near omnipresent comedian is stepping up for his first lead role with Ride Along, a farcical Training Day riff which finds Hart's lowly security guard sitting shotgun with his fiancée's badass cop brother to prove his worth.

Basically it's a vehicle to allow Hart to do what he does best: freak out at things in a high-pitched voice, while co-star Ice Cube continues his winning wry, gruff detective shtick from 21 Jump Street. This is the stuff January releases are made of. Peep the new, longer trailer above. Ride Along hits theaters January 17.
