Watch Tiffany Haddish & Megalyn Echikunwoke Kill It in the New Trailer for 'Night School'

Kevin Hart's new film doesn't drop until this September, but it's obvious these women are due to carry the movie with their comedic chops.

The first official trailer for Kevin Hart's new comedy, Night School, has dropped and his co-stars hailing from the African diaspora are the ones who caught our eye.


In the clip, we see Hart, who plays Teddy Walker, a grill salesman who seems to have it all. He's forced to start over when his store explodes after proposing to his girlfriend, Lisa, played by Megalyn Echikunwoke. For him to maximize on a new job opportunity, he needs to get his GED at his former high school—and in comes Tiffany Haddish who plays Carrie, his night school teacher.

Watch the trailer below.

The hilarious antics in this clip are on another level, but we're here for Haddish and Echikunwoke holding their own in what we see in this film so far. Although we don't see much of Yvonne Orji in this trailer, who plays Maya, Lisa's friend—we know she's set to flourish in her feature film debut.

Night School will be released in theaters September 28.
