LOS ANGELES, Nov. 20 (UPI) -- Comedian Kevin Hart and action star Dwayne Johnson team-up for the CIA in the first trailer for their upcoming action-comedy, Central Intelligence.

Warner Bros. released the trailer Friday which features Hart as a former high school sports star who gets recruited by Johnson's enthusiastic former classmate Bob to take on a dangerous mission for the CIA. Plenty of explosions and epic shootouts commence much to Hart's dismay.

In a surprise twist at the end, we learn that the tall and muscular Bob was bullied for being overweight in high school as the trailer flashes back to Johnson hilariously singing in the shower as "Fat Robbie."

Johnson previously opened up about his new character on Instagram writing, "The inspiration behind this character 'Bob' has always been Tom Hanks in 'Big' with an added twist, He's a grown man who's extremely childlike and views the world thru exuberant and enthusiastic teenage eyes... Loves to wear his favorite Public Enemy shirt, cargo pants and sneakers to work.. and rocks a fanny pack which holds his Bruce Lee quotes and a condom (he's always prepared). The 'added twist' is Bob has an extremely high IQ and is one of the most lethal men on the planet as a C.I.A. contract killer. Oh the most important character trait.. He hates bullies. Can't wait for y'all to meet 'Bob'."
