'Coffee & Kareem': Ed Helms channels '80s films in new posters

March 24 (UPI) -- Netflix is gearing up for the release of the new movie Coffee & Kareem.

The streaming service shared a trio of posters for the comedy Tuesday featuring Ed Helms as James Coffee, a police officer, and Terrence Little Gardenhigh as Kareem Manning, the son of James' girlfriend, Vanessa Manning (Taraji P. Henson).


"Truly obsessed with these '80s throwback posters for the new movie #CoffeeAndKareem, starring @edhelms, @TherealTaraji, Terrence Little Gardenhigh, @davidalangrier, and Betty Gilpin," the post reads.
