Last week, we shared some photos from the upcoming Dax Shepard and David Palmer-directed action comedy Hit and Run, and today the trailer has arrived online. Starring real-life couple Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard, along with a host of other notable names including Bradley Cooper, the trailer gives us a look at the humor and plenty of action in store for us.
Introduced by Bell and Shepard, who kick the trailer off by tooting each other's horns and listing off the many great names included in the film, the trailer begins by cashing in on the couple's adorableness as we're introduced to Charlie and his fiancé, two people who clearly don't realize things are about to get very messy in their lives when some of Charlie's old friends track him down…
The trailer establishes that Charlie has a somewhat spotty past, but perhaps he's not quite as dangerous as his former criminal friends. At least, he managed to avoid jail time while his friends (Bradley Cooper and Michael Rosenbaum among them) did time. And he apparently kept that history from his fiancé, who is now caught up in the mess with him. And then there's Tom Arnold, who appears to be playing the U.S. Marshall responsible for Charlie. He seems a bit bumbling, which could be very funny.
Featuring a mixed tone of comedy and action, the trailer also reveals a bit more of the scene shown in one of the photos we shared, which has Bradley Cooper standing face to face with a pants-less man. It seems like he got the wrong room. (Very wrong room.)
Hit and Run has a great looking cast, which includes Shepard, Bell, Cooper and Rosenbaum, as well as Tom Arnold, Ryan Hansen, Kristin Chenoweth, Beau Bridges and David Koechner, among others.
The film is set to arrive in theaters August 24. More information and photos can be found in our Blend Film Database.
