Few would argue that Kevin Hart is currently one of the biggest comedians on the planet. He’s also made a sizeable impact on Hollywood thanks to roles across Ride Along 2 and Central Intelligence, not to mention voice work on The Secret Life of Pets. Blending those two worlds together is upcoming documentary Kevin Hart: What Now?, a genre mash-up that asks the question: just how did Hart and his team orchestrate a performance at Philadelphia’s Lincoln Financial Field in front of a capacity crowd.That’s an eye-watering 50,000 people, setting a new record for live stand-up.
Leslie Small and Tim Story are the directors at the helm of Kevin Hart: What Now?, with today’s reveal spoofing everything from James Band and the world of espionage to tentpole Hollywood blockbusters in the style of World War Z (see the first poster below).
Halle Berry and Don Cheadle also star in the feature, and it’ll be interesting to see if Hart, buoyed by his recent Hollywood roles, has the clout to get bums on seats come October.
Kevin Hart: What Now? is booked in to land in select theaters on October 14.
In Universal Pictures’ Kevin Hart: What Now?, comedic rock-star Kevin Hart follows up his 2013 hit stand-up concert movie Let Me Explain, which grossed $32 million domestically and became the third-highest live stand-up comedy movie of all time. Hart takes center stage in this groundbreaking, record-setting, sold-out performance of “What Now?”—filmed outdoors in front of 50,000 people at Philadelphia’s Lincoln Financial Field—marking the first time a comedian has ever performed to an at-capacity football stadium.
