John Cena and Awkwafina star in the new action comedy Jackpot, and the first trailer is online. Prime Video released the trailer on Tuesday for the new film, and you can check it out below.

The film is directed by Paul Feig and stars Cena, Awkwafina, Ayden Mayeri, Donald Elise Watkins, Sam Asghari, Murray Hill and Simu Liu. It releases on August 15th in the platform and is described as follows:

In the near future, a ‘Grand Lottery’ has been newly established in California – the catch: kill the winner before sundown to legally claim their multi-billion dollar jackpot. When Katie Kim (Awkwafina) moves to Los Angeles, she mistakenly finds herself with the winning ticket. Desperate to survive the hordes of jackpot hunters, she reluctantly joins forces with amateur lottery protection agent Noel Cassidy (John Cena) who will do everything in his power to get her to sundown in exchange for a piece of her prize. However, Noel must face off with his slick rival Louis Lewis (Simu Liu), who also seeks to collect Katie’s commission at all costs.
