"Ride Along" stars Ice Cube and Kevin Hart and producer Will Packer are spreading the word about their made-in-Atlanta movie with a promotional blitz that would impress Ron Burgundy.

Following a Monday night red carpet screening of the movie, the three hopped aboard a bus and ferried members of the Atlanta media around to point out various locations where the movie filmed scenes. The tour left from and returned to Sublime Doughnuts, which served up specialty "Kevin Hart Chocolate Drop" donuts and "Iced Cube" coffee. (See what they did there?)

Underground Atlanta, Grady High School, the Philips Arena/Georgia Dome area and a downtown loft all factor prominently in the movie, which comes out Jan. 17.

While the movie was set in Atlanta, the trio noted the city's versatility.

"You can shoot it for Atlanta or it can double for any other city in the world," Ice Cube said.

"Atlanta is a serious hub for entertainment," Hart added.

The guys had a big time cracking on each other and cracking each other up.

"We were going for Chris Tucker, Mike Epps, LeVar Burton - we had to settle for Kevin Hart," Cube quipped. 

Here are a couple of video clips from our "Ride Along" ridealong. (Language warning! If you have delicate sensibilities, do not play the second one.)
