Watch: Wisecracks Fly in ‘Barbershop 3: The Next Cut’ Trailer

The trademark wisecracks flow in the first trailer for New Line-MGM’s “Barbershop 3: The Next Cut,” released five months before its April 15 opening.

The third version of the Chicago-set franchise sees the barbershop — run by Ice Cube’s Calvin — having teamed up with the beauty shop, operated by Angie (Regina Hall), in a single location. The new faces include Common and Nicki Minaj.

Cedric the Entertainer, Anthony Anderson, JB Smoove, Lamorne Morris, Sean Patrick Thomas, Deon Cole and rapper Tyga are also in the trailer, which focuses on the shop coming together to prevent gang violence. At one point, Cube admonishes Cedric for failing to hit the floor during gunfire and responding, “I’m too old to get up.”

The trailer also sees Cedric give a youngster a George Jefferson-style cut for talking back to his mother.

Barbershop 3: The Next Cut” is directed by Malcolm D. Lee from a script by Kenya Barris and Tracy Oliver.

The original 2002 film, directed by Tim Story, starred Ice Cube and Anthony Anderson. The 2004 sequel, “Barbershop 2: Back in Business,” featured the same cast, with Kevin Rodney Sullivan directing.

The two “Barbershop” films combined for about $140 million in worldwide box office.
