Netflix has released a new red trailer for Coffee & Kareem. It’s the latest original comedy by Streaming, and it’s directed by Michael Dawes (Stuber, Goon), starring Office alumnus Ed Helms and Terrence Little Gardenheig in what looks like a cop buddy throwing himself backwards. The company accuses it of being an action comedy about unexpected tyre counterfeiting, one four-letter insult after another. This trailer is proof of that, because it’s full of action, laughter and a pretty strong curse.

The trailer starts with a glimpse of the coming chaos and then reminds us of how the chaos started in the center of this film. Ed Helms’ character desperately tries to make a meaningful connection with his friend’s son, which is not good to say the least. They are unconsciously involved in a cruel drama with a gang of drug addicts who chase them away to save their lives. He is obscene, full of show and seems to mix the fluids of the 80’s with the R-rated studio comedies of recent years.

In addition to the trailer, Netflix also released a series of posters for the film, in which ’80s classics were shown on the channel. Ed Helms and Terrence Little Gardenhay take Die Hard, 48 hours and a Beverly Hills agent. The adopted posters are quite funny, although they may raise unreasonable expectations in the way they compare coffee and Karim to these particular films, which have undoubtedly proved their worth. However, the creative points in marketing are for her, especially considering the fact that it is relatively rare to see a good poster for a new release these days.

The heart of Coffee and Karim is Constable James Coffee (Ed Helms), who enjoys his new relationship with Vanessa Manning (Taraji P. Henson). However, their 12-year-old son, Karim (Terrence Little Gardenhay), is currently preparing for their divorce. To chase his mother’s boyfriend away for good, Karim tries to hire a gang of criminals to shut him down, but he accidentally discovers a secret network of illegal activities aimed at him and his family. To protect their mother, Karim and Coffee have joined forces for a dangerous chase through Detroit. Shane Mac wrote the scenario, which serves as his primary function.

The cast also includes Betty Gilpin (Hunting, Shining), RonRico Lee (Time Running, Sister), Andrew the Bachelor (Nanny, Scraps of the World) and David Alan Greer (Jumanji, Carmichael Show). Michael Dowse recently made the film Stuber, which unfortunately became a real box-office bomb and one of the remarkable victims of the Disney/Fox merger. Dawes also directed the iconic hockey comedy Gun and the romantic comedy What if Daniel Radcliffe. Coffee and Karim are served on the 3rd. April to the Netflix streaming service.
