Night School Trailer: Kevin Hart And Tiffany Haddish Team As Student And Teacher

Night School is in session. 

Universal Pictures has unveiled the first trailer for the upcoming comedy film Night School, which stars Kevin Hart as Teddy Walker, a down-on-his-luck guy who suddenly finds himself without a job after one particularly — ahem — explosive evening. Looking to boost his credentials and up his chances at landing a new gig (and potentially starting a new career), Teddy consults with his successful businessman best friend (played by Parks and Recreation alum Ben Schwartz) to get advice on what his next steps should be. 

"You're the best salesman I've ever seen. I can see you being a stockbroker like me," Schwartz's character says in the trailer. Unfortunately, he can't give Teddy a job, as his bosses won't allow him to hire a dropout. Teddy quips that Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg was a dropout, to which Schwartz's character responds, "He dropped out of Harvard. You dropped out of Piedmont High."

Since Teddy was only a few credits shy of graduating, he figures that finishing up high school studies won't be too difficult, and so he enrolls in night school in order to earn his GED. Of course, we know that things won't go exactly to plan — the eccentric principal Stewart (portrayed by Drunk History's Taran Killam) is Teddy's first big obstacle, his "clinically dumb" diagnosis is his second — and that hilarity is bound to ensue. 

Tiffany Haddish, one of 2017's biggest breakout stars, acts opposite Hart as his enthusiastic, take-no-excuses teacher, with 22 Jump Street actor Rob Riggle sitting beside him as a fellow student in the night school classroom. 

Night School also features Keith Davis as Teddy's father, Yvonne Orji as Maya, Mary Lynn Rajskub as Theresa, Megalyn Echikunwoke as Lisa, Anne Winters as Mila, and Jeff Rose as Isaac. Romany Malco, Bresha Webb, Al Madrigal, and Jacob Batalon round out the cast. 

Directed by Barbershop: The Next Cut and Girls Trip filmmaker Malcolm D. Lee, Night School is set for release on September 28. Until then, take a look at the trailer above and the film's official poster below.
