Charlize Theron and Seth Rogen have paired up for a romantic-comedy film ‘Long Shot’ and the makers have now released a new full-length trailer.

Rogen plays the role of an unemployed journalist Fred Flarsky as he bumps into his former babysitter-childhood crush played by Theron who is running for the post of the United States President. 

The trailer opens with Theron entering a party where Rogen is also present. He meets with her and asks if she is dating the prime minister of Canada (Skarsgard). She quickly responds that things are "weird" with the politician as clips show the two dancing and having a drink at a bar.

"I hooked up with my fair share of world leaders, too," jokes Flarsky. "I 69-ed Fidel Castro once. You thought his beard was big."

Flarsky soon asks Charlotte about her dating life and she explains that "guys don't really want to date women who are more powerful than them."

The trailer continues to show scenes where the two are seen bonding while those helping her run for the post warn her to not get linked romantically with her. 

The cast also includes O'Shea Jackson Jr., June Diane Raphael, Ravi Patel, Andy Serkis, Alexander Skarsgard, Randall Park, Bob Odenkirk and Randy Orton are also included in the cast. 

Jonathan Levine is the director of the film while Rogen, Theron, Evan Goldberg, James Weaver and Beth Kono are producers.

‘Long Shot’ is set to hit theatres on May 3.
