A new international trailer has been released for the upcoming Adam McKay comedy, The Other Guys. The film stars his frequent collaborator and writing partner Will Ferrell alongside Mark Wahlberg in an ode to the buddy cop genre. A domestic teaser debuted back in April but this international version is a lot better. Check out the trailer below…
The Other Guys centers on two New York detectives Allen Gamble (Ferrell), a forensic accountant who’s more interested in paperwork than hitting the streets, and Detective Terry Hoitz (Wahlberg), a tough guy who’s been stuck with him as his partner ever since an unfortunate run-in with Derek Jeter. They both idolize the city’s top cops, Danson and Highsmith (Dwayne Johnson and Samuel L. Jackson), but when an opportunity arises for the “Other Guys” to step up, things don’t quite go as planned.
The film has all the ingredients to be a summer hit but I’m not confident in its blockbuster potential. When was the last time we saw Wahlberg in a funny film? I Heart Huckabees was an indie comedy, not a massive commercial hit. It will be interesting to see how this movie plays out.
The Other Guys hits theaters on August 6, 2010.
