Kevin Hart & Regina Hall in "About Last Night"

About Last Night is set to make its World Premiere at Pan African Film Festival as the festival's Centerpiece Film, next month. Immediately after that, during Valentine's Day week, the film will open in theaters nationwide.

Ahead of that, a new red-band trailer (for language primarily) has been released and is embedded below.

One of a handful of upcoming films from super-producer Will Packer, that are scheduled for release in the next 6 to 12 months, is Screen Gems' remake of the 1986 rom-com, About Last Night, starring Packer's Think Like A Man co-stars Michael EalyRegina Hall and Kevin Hart, as well as Joy Bryant.

This contemporary version closely follows two new couples as they... "journey from the bar to the bedroom, and are eventually put to the test in the real world."

Edward Zwick directed the original that starred Rob Lowe and Demi Moore as couple number 1, with James Belushi and Elizabeth Perkins as would-be couple number 2.

In the remake, Hart plays the Belushi role; while Ealy is in the lead, originated by Rob Lowe.

Regina Hall plays the role originated on film by Elizabeth Perkins, the best friend, who has a love/hate relationship with Hart's character. 

And finally Joy Bryant plays Demi Moore's role.

Steve Pink is the film's director, which, from all we've read and heard thus far, may be closer in content to the original play that the first film was based on - Sexual Perversity in Chicago - written by David Mamet, in the sense that it was more R-rated than the 1986 rom-com film adaptation, full of profanity.

We'll see when Screen Gems releases the film on February 14, 2014.

    I must be weird because that trailer didn't bother me at all. It's rated R for a reason.

    WOW, I can't believe it, I agree with everyone - except Mark & Darla. Listen, I am not a prude buy any stretch of imagination but hearing f-you, fu*k this and fu*k that multiple times in a 1 minute clip is a little too much. Who does that appeal to?

    Anyway, Kevin Hart (as Mr. NO implied) is sort of wearing out his welcome, ain't he? Look, I think the dude is funny as hell **waving @ Mark & Darla** but his short man jokes are getting a little tired. And, although the funniest comic of all time, Richard Pryor, did cuz (sometimes below the R-rated bar) I accepted it because it seemed more natural than this sorry excuse for humor.

    And, as Sergio calls it, yak hair... nuff said. :-)

    Anyway, in my mind this movie will sit right next to The Best Man 1-2-andwhatever, not gonna get my dollar even if they were passing out free cold beer and a shot of cognac. Nope, if you've seen one rom-com you've seen them all, so i'm out.

    Clearly, you haven't read the source material. There is profanity on every single page, the c word, f word, b word, you name it, it's there. This is toned down from the original play.

    You think at least one of the women in any of these type of films would be wearing their own natural hair? It's always Weave CVity in these movies

    @Akimbo, and an Aunt Jamima table cloth dress because it seems anything outside of this for Black Women, then we're hating ourselves, or making people uncomfortable. We're damned to hell if we do, and damned if we don't. SMDH

    Women of all ethnicities wear wigs and weaves in movies. They're easier to keep consistent when shooting the same scene or "day" over multiple weeks. Also daily professional styling is damaging and stressful to real hair, especially fragile "black hair."

    Would an afro textured weave make you happy?

    A bad black version of bad white relationship porn. Yay.

    Watching a funeral procession is funnier than Kevin Hart persona in a movie or his standup act.

    He has zero appeal as a leading man.

    this shit light!!!

    I will not be going to see this; way too much profanity.

  • No | January 23, 2014 1:29 PMReply

    It's telling that all the highlighted parts feature Kevin Hart, who is beginning to be a tiresome presence due to his over-used schtick.
