  • Kevin Hart: Let Me Explain

Over a year after the immense success of his Laugh at My Pain, comedian/actor Kevin Hart, currently one of the busiest men in the biz, will see another stand-up comedy movie, titled Kevin Hart: Let Me Explain, released by Lionsgate, this summer, July 4, via its partnership with CodeBlack Entertainment.

A bold move there by both Lionsgate and CodeBlack, opening the concert film on the 4th of July holiday weekend - traditionally a date that studios pitch their summer tentpole release tents; Disney's Lone Ranger and Universal's Despicable Me 2 will both open the day before, so I suppose we could consider the likely R-rated Let Me Explain counter-programming to those two family-oriented flicks.

Financed and executive produced by Hart and his Hartbeat Productions and produced by Clanagan, Let Me Explain includes a 2012 10-country concert tour, which saw Hart travel to 80 cities, generating over $32 million in ticket sales. 

You'll recall last May's announcement that Lionsgate formed a partnership with Jeff Clanagan's CodeBlack.

CodeBlack also released Kevin Hart: Laugh at My Pain, which grossed $7.7 million in USA box office alone.

Might they see a similar kind of success with Kevin Hart: Let Me Explain? We'll see...

As I said, Hart has a busy year ahead of him, with roles in several films and at least one TV show (already airing), set to debut in 2013.

Watch the new teaser trailer below, which was reportedly banned from airing on TV:

    Congrats to him on all of his success, but this trailer is aligned with my usual opinion of him, he is funny at times, but he is not nearly consistently funny enough to be placed in the league with the greats, i.e. Bernie Mac, Eddie Murphy, Chris Rock, Chris Tucker, Dave Chappelle, etc.

    I saw "Laugh At My Pain" when it was in theaters, and it was funny at times, but it was no where near as funny as "The Kings of Comedy".

    Maybe he'll explain why there was no money left for lotion in the budget.

    You were so wrong for that comment, but I have to admit I laughed when I read it!

    Um. Well. Right. Okay.
