Warner Bros. has released the first trailer for “Get Hard,” starring Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart, three months before its March 27 release.

Ferrell plays a successful businessman who is sentenced to 10 years in a maximum security prison for fraud, panics and hires the first African-American he meets to teach him how to “get hard” for prison time.

Even though that man (Hart) is anything but a criminal, he agrees to take Ferrell’s character under his wing, declaring, “You master these skills — you WILL survive in prison.”

Alison Brie co-stars as the fiancee of Ferrell’s character. Etan Cohen directs from a script by Ian Roberts and Jay Martell.
