The last thing you want to ask a comedian is if they’re funny anymore. Over time, I’m more than sure Chris Rock has been asked about whether or not he’s still got it on stage (he does) and considering his animated films and the Grown Ups series have raked in millions, maybe being serious for a second will allow him to breathe. Or, as his upcoming film Top Five peers into, a look into the side of celebrity we all sort of know but don’t really want to know.

In Top Five, Rock plays Andre Allen, a former stand-up comedian turned Hollywood star (remind you of anyone) who’s set to get married to a reality TV star (Gabrielle Union). Before he’s set to be married however, he meets a writer who’s doing a profile on him, all while he’s going through a minor career crisis and his hit film series ‘Hammy The Bear’ isn’t as popular as it once was.

A lot of Rock’s personal life, his thoughts on music anyway seep into the film as it packs a pretty robust cast (Rosario Dawson, Kevin Hart, JB Smoove, Tracy Morgan, Cedric The Entertainer, Whoopi Goldberg) and is executive produced by Kanye West, Jay Z & Questlove among others. It’s a Rock vehicle where everything belongs to him (he writes and directs as well). See the trailer below and catch Top Five in theaters December 12th.
