Fresh off the success of The Wedding Ringer, Kevin Hart teams up with Will Ferrell on Get Hard, another comedy that looks poised for strong returns. BoxOffice takes a closer look at the film's commercial prospects.

Get Hard
(Warner Bros.)

PROS:

- Kevin Hart's recent track record is very impressive. The young comedian has quickly become one of the most reliable draws working today.
- After a couple of recent disappointments, we think that Will Ferrell is poised for a comeback.
- Reactions to the first trailer have been quite positive on Facebook and Twitter.

CONS:

- It may be opening too close to The Wedding Ringer.
- March is a strong month, and opening at the end of it could be a bit of a challenge. 
- Furious 7 opens the following weekend.  

Check out our predictions for this film and others in the table below.
