Sony (and thanks to TotalFilm for the heads up) have released this brand new motion poster for The Other Guys which stars Will Ferrel and Mark Whalberg. If you’ve not seen or heard of of a motion poster before, it’s basically a little advert in a poster orientation which promotes the films.

The Other Guys is directed by Adam McKay and has a great cast which also includes Eva Mendes, Michael Keaton, Samuel L. Jackson, Dwayne Johnson, Steve Coogan and Ray Stevenson who I think I last saw in Rome (the TV series, not the place!).

I’ve placed the motion poster below the synopsis. The poster gives us an insight into what we might expect from the film itself.

Set in New York City, The Other Guys follows Detective Allen Gamble (Will Ferrell), a forensic accountant who’s more interested in paperwork than hitting the streets, and Detective Terry Hoitz (Mark Wahlberg ), a tough guy who has been stuck with Allen as his partner ever since an unfortunate run-in with Derek Jeter.

Allen and Terry idolize the city’s top cops, Danson and Highsmith (Dwayne Johnson and Samuel L. Jackson), but when an opportunity arises for the Other Guys to step up, things don’t quite go as planned.
