The international trailer for Adam McKay’s upcoming action-comedy The Other Guys has gone online. The film stars Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg as a pair of desk-bound cops who decide to take on a major case and prove they’re as good as the department’s super-star detectives (played by Dwayne Johnson and Samuel L. Jackson).
I like this international trailer more than the previously-released domestic one because it doesn’t feature yelling-Will Ferrell and instead highlights the comedic stylings of stating-the-obvious-Will Ferrell. Also, Eva Mendes gets in a good joke at the end. Hit the jump to check out the trailer. The Other Guys hits theaters on August 6th.
For those just tuning in, here’s the official synopsis for The Other Guys:
Detective Allen Gamble is a forensic accountant who’s more interested in paperwork than hitting the streets. Detective Terry Hoitz is a tough guy who has been stuck with Allen as his partner ever since an unfortunate run-in with Derek Jeter. Allen and Terry idolize the city’s top cops, Danson and Highsmith, but when an opportunity arises for the Other Guys to step up, things don’t quite go as planned.
