Yesterday, fans got their first official look at the summer comedy Central Intelligence, with new photos featuring stars Kevin Hart and Dwayne Johnson. Today Warner Bros. has unveiled the first trailer, which features Dwayne Johnson like you've never seen him before, as a fat guy.

But before the numbers-cruncher realizes what he's getting into, it's too late to get out, as his increasingly unpredictable new friend drags him through a world of shoot-outs, double-crosses and espionage that could get them both killed in more ways than he can count.Read More
