Someone’s cutting onions! Kevin Hart’s newest movie finds him as widowed new dad navigating life with a baby girl. Based on a true story, Fatherhood is fittingly set to premiere over Father’s Day weekend, June 18 on Netflix.

The official trailer dropped this week and Hart took to Instagram today to express his excitement about the film. “Can’t wait for y’all to see how special this one is. You guys are going to love it!!!!” he wrote, accompanied by a short movie clip.

President Barack Obama and Michelle Obama’s production company, Higher Ground Productions, will present the film along with Netflix and Sony. Fatherhood is directed by Paul Weitz (About a Boy) and also stars Academy Award nominee Alfre Woodard and Emmy Award nominee Anthony Carrigan. It’s based on the book Two Kisses From Maddie: A Story of Loss and Love by Matthew Logelin.

Dads are special and this Father’s Day weekend you can bond together over the beauty and pain of Fatherhood. Save the date and add this one to your Netflix queue!
