As his new standup special, Kevin Hart: What Now? does solid business at the weekend box office, the comedian has dropped the film’s accompanying soundtrack, which features vocal contributions from heavy hitters like Nick Jonas, 2 Chainz, Akon, and T.I.
The Kevin Hart: What Now? mixtape sees the actor rapping as his alter ego, Chocolate Droppa, on tracks like “Baller Alert,” “Light It Up,” “Give It Back,” and “Sunday Morning.”
The beginning of Kevin Hart: What Now? feels less like a standup special and more like an elaborate James Bond spoof, introducing the titular comedian as Agent 0054 and various celebrities as themselves, including Ed Helms and Don Cheadle. All the hallmarks are here—the nasty villain, the tense card games, Halle Berry as an easily bored Bond Girl—and at first, you’d be forgiven for thinking that this was just another Hart comedy.
In the new trailer for Kevin Hart’s upcoming stand-up movie What Now?, the comedian fails miserably as a superspy — but at least he has a truly impressive Bond girl in Halle Berry.
Before Kevin Hart was in seemingly every movie released, he was one of the most successful stand-up comedians — and he’s returning to his roots in the new trailer for What Now?.
The title for Kevin Hart’s upcoming stand-up comedy film poses a question that applies to the comedian’s life before and after the film — after Kevin Hart’s growing string of cinematic and stand-up successes, what does he do now? What Now? answers that question with a sold-out comedy show filling Philadelphia’s Lincoln Financial Field with 50,000 fans.
Get ready: Kevin Hart’s next stand-up special is coming next year. Kevin Hart: What Now? is set to hit theaters on Oct. 14, 2016. The feature was filmed at Philadelphia’s Lincoln Financial Field—where the NFL’s Eagles play—whose capacity is a whopping 69,176 (although The Wrap reports only 50,000 were in attendance). His last feature stand-up, Kevin Hart: Let Me Explain, slayed box offices, reeling in over $32 million. So this makes sense.
