Long gone are the days when Kevin Hart used to do standups or was hailed as a comic character in Hollywood movies such as Scary movie or Ride Along.
The 41-year-old, Hollywood’s favorite, father has earned his place in big-budget movies and several Netflix contracts. He’s likewise pulling more serious roles these days and has been at the forefront of many articles for his upcoming video game-based movie, “Borderlands.”
Hart posted a new clip of his upcoming Netflix release, ‘Fatherhood,’ and on Sunday, Netflix released the movie’s first trailer. The movie is inspired by the book Two Kisses for Maddy, a memoir of love and loss authored by Matthew Logelin himself.
The movie centers on the true story of a single father, Matthew Logelin, facing the day-to-day challenges of parenthood.
Mathew faces the challenge of raising his baby girl on his own following the sudden demise of his wife.
The movie is full of heartbreaking scenes that’ll make you hold back your tears. “If you could have one parent, I wish you could’ve had your mom,” Hart’s character says, setting the tone in the trailer as he cradles his infant in his arms, “she would’ve been better at it.”
Then, as he places flowers by his wife’s grave, he adds, “Mommy was the best.”
The clip Kevin Hart posted on his Instagram has over 8 million views already and thousands of comments.
He captioned the post as, “Fatherhood.”
“Here is a clip from one of the scenes of my movie “Fatherhood,” which will be hitting @netflix on June 18th …..We are 14 days away, people!!!!! Let’s goooooooooo …..Fathers Day weekend is going to be extra special this year!!!!! #Fatherhood “.
Hart is hilarious and one of Hollywood’s most talented comedians, so the movie will no doubt uphold some comical elements. Still, overall, Fatherhood would appear to have a very analogous vibe which almost every parent, single or not, will recognize.
