Universal Pictures has set an October 14, 2016 release date for Kevin Hart: What Now?, a concert film which will be shot at Philadelphia's Lincoln Financial Center, home of the NFL's Philadelphia Eagles. The Philadelphia concert, which takes place August 30, will be the last stop of Kevin Hart's 45-city What Now stand up tour, where he will perform outdoors in front of 50,000 fans. It will be the first time a comedian has ever performed in a full-capacity football stadium.
Kevin Hart: What Now? will go up against Sony's Inferno starring Tom Hanks and Focus Features' A Monster Calls starring Liam Neeson on October 14. This will be Kevin Hart's third concert film, following 2011's Kevin Hart: Laugh at My Pain and 2013's Kevin Hart: Let Me Explain. The latter earned an impressive $32.2 million at the domestic box office, making it the third-highest stand up comedy movie ever, with just a $7 million budget.
Kevin Hart recently starred in The Wedding Ringer and Get Hard. He will next be seen in Universal's comedy sequel Ride Along 2, set for release in January 2016, and he also has a voice role in the animated movie The Secret Life of Pets. The actor is also in various stages of development with other projects such as Ballers, The Black Phantom and Central Intelligence.
