Channing Tatum Needs Vodka and a VCR in ‘Comrade Detective’ First Trailer (Video)

Tatum, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Nick Offerman provide voices for Romanian buddy cop show

Amazon Prime and A24 have released the first trailer for “Comrade Detective,” in which Channing Tatum and Joseph Gordon-Levitt provide voiceovers for two Romanian police officers in the buddy cop comedy.

At the beginning of the trailer, Tatum receives a mysterious package, which prompts him to tell his assistant: “Bring some vodka with the VCR when you bring it back!”

He pops the video into the newly-acquired VCR and a 1983 Romanian cop show, titled “Comrade Detective,” starts up on the screen. The show is a favorite of the “Magic Mike” star, so he and a group of friends decide to provide voiceovers for the foreign language show so that non-Romanians can enjoy it also.

The Cold War-era spoof follows the adventures of detectives Gregor Anghel (Tatum) and Iosef Baciu (voiced by Levitt) as they comb the streets of Bucharest. Nick Offerman, Jake Johnson, Fred Armisen, Kim Basinger, Mahershala Ali, Bobby Cannavale, Mark Duplass and Debra Winger also get their voices featured in the show.

“Comrade Detective” will premiere on Amazon Aug. 4.
