Putting his money where his motor mouth is, Kevin Hart is inviting fans to see his his latest film on his dime. Hart announced this afternoon that he’s bought every seat of the 3:15 PM Arclight Hollywood screening of Central Intelligence, the action comedy co-starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson that debuted today in wide release and looks to have a solid opening weekend with $12M-$13M Friday and a FSS opening above $33M. The first 195 people who show up will get in.
Warner Bros has been pushing Central Intelligence hard for several months now, particularly the combination of The Rock and Kevin Hart who showed pretty great chemistry when they co-hosted the MTV Movie Awards back in April. Reviews for the film are mixed but critics seem to agree the duo’s chemistry is just as strong there. The Rock and Hart apparently concur, as word is they’ll be reuniting for Johnson’s upcoming Jumanji remake, directed by Jake Kasdan and set to hit theaters July 28, 2017.
