Universal Pictures released a second trailer for its upcoming comedy, “Night School.”
The movie stars Kevin Hart as a down-on-his-luck high school dropout. He goes to night school to earn his GED. Tiffany Haddish teaches the class that includes a collection of adults also on the path to self improvement.
Hart is the star of films like “Ride Along,” “Central Intelligence,” and “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle,” among others. He got his start in stand up comedy, and has gone on to star in dozens of films and TV shows. He currently has seven projects in various stages of production, including the “Jumanji” sequel and a remake of the beloved 1980s comedy “The Great Outdoors.” He is one of seven credited writers on “Night School.”
Tiffany Haddish has been working in Hollywood for decades, with roles in projects like “If Loving You is Wrong,” “Meet the Spartans,” and “Keanu.” But it was her hilarious work in last year’s “Girls Trip” that propelled the comedienne to superstar levels. Following her breakthrough performance, directors clamored to lock her into their next films. She has eight projects in the works.
“Night School” also stars Rob Riggle (“21 Jump Street”), Taran Killam (“SNL”), and Romany Malco (“Mad Dogs”).
“Night School” is directed by Malcolm D. Lee. He directed Haddish last year in “Girls Trip.” His other credits include “The Best Man” and its holiday sequel, “Welcome Home, Roscoe Jenkins,” and “Undercover Brother.”
Contributing to the screenplay with Hart are Harry Ratchford, Joey Wells, Matt Kellard, Nicholas Stoller, and John Hamburg.
The new trailer, which you can see below, gives a more in-depth peek at why Hart’s character returns to night school, and how he faces his very serious teacher.
Universal Pictures is producing and distributing the film. It will hit theaters on September 28.
