Watch: Red Band Trailer For 'Hit And Run' Starring Dax Shepard, Kristen Bell & A Dreadlocked Bradley Cooper

After playing small roles in a variety of comedies like “Baby Mama” and “Idiocracy,” Dax Shepard is set to lead his most high-profile project to date, the R-rated action comedy “Hit And Run.” While the first trailer looked like any other generic action comedy churned out by the studios in the past few decades, the new red band trailer shows a greater emphasis on the raunchy gross-out humor that’s been ruling the box office of late.

Hit And Run Dax Shepard Kristen Bell

After playing small roles in a variety of comedies like “Baby Mama” and “Idiocracy,” Dax Shepard is set to lead his most high-profile project to date, the R-rated action comedy “Hit And Run.” While the first trailer looked like any other generic action comedy churned out by the studios in the past few decades, the new red band trailer shows a greater emphasis on the raunchy gross-out humor that’s been ruling the box office of late.

The film, written and co-directed by Shepard and David Palmer, follows Charlie Bronson, a getaway driver who jeopardizes his Witness Protection Plan identity in order to get his girlfriend to Los Angeles, and is chased by the feds and his former gang, led by an awesomely dreadlocked Bradley Cooper. Shepard leads an eclectic cast that includes Kristen Bell, Tom Arnold, Michael Rosenbaum and David Koechner. If nothing else, it seems as though Shepard and Cooper have established a nice on-screen chemistry together, and this does have a good bit of energy to it. Whether it can be sustained for the whole film remains to be seen.

“Hit And Run” is scheduled to hit theaters on August 24th. Watch the trailer below. [Yahoo]
