“When it comes to comedy, it doesn't get better than Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson. They are two of the most gifted comedy actors of this or any generation," said CinemaCon managing director Mitch Neuhauser. “It's always a fun time at the movies when they appear in their own films, but when they team up, the fun increases exponentially and the laughter doesn't let up from start to finish.”

Wilson has appeared in The Royal Tenenbaums, Night at the Museum and Midnight in Paris, a performance that earned him a Golden Globe nomination. Vaughn’s credits include Old School, The Break-Up and Four Christmases.
