Monday night (1-6-14) “Ride Along” director Will Packer grabbed the mic in front of the star studded Atlanta premiere crowd and thanked everyone for Atl being his number one market for his past movies “Stomping The Yard”, “Takers”, “Think Like A Man”, “Obsessed” and now “Ride Along”. Then Ice Cube and Kevin Hart entered the theater to thank the Atlanta crowd for being the back drop to the movie and it being the closest thing we seen since Will Smith & Martin’s “Bad Boys”.

Kevin Hart announced on Twitter that he was crashing a premiere in Atlanta so everyone had a heads up that he was coming, but seeing Ice Cube and Will Packer was a surprise though. Attendees include all the who who’s of the Atl which included Grand Hustle’s T.I. & Tiny, Stevie J and Joseline just to name a few…

“Ride Along” is in theaters 1-17-14.
