FIST FIGHT Trailer: Ice Cube Wants to Brawl With Charlie Day
Here's the first trailer for Fist Fight, a new movie that stars the unlikely combo of Ice Cube and Charlie Day. They play high school teachers, and for some reason, Cube wants to knock Day out in a fight after school. The whole trailer basically looks like a slight twist on that recent Will Ferrell movie Get Hard; this time, Day tries to learn what to do and how to fight from other faculty members while constantly making a fool of himself. It's a little cheesy, but it seems like the leads are well-cast for what they're being asked to do here. Let's hope the script is up to snuff.
With a solid supporting cast that includes Tracy Morgan, Kumail Nanjiani, Jillian Bell, Christina Hendricks, and more, this one could end up being pretty funny.
Fist Fight opens on February 17, 2017.
On the last day of the year, mild-mannered high school English teacher Andy Campbell (Day) is trying his best to keep it together amidst senior pranks, a dysfunctional administration and budget cuts that put jobs on the line. But things go from bad to worse when he accidentally crosses his much tougher and deeply feared colleague, Ron Strickland (Ice Cube), who challenges Campbell to an old-fashioned throw down after school. News of the fight spreads like wildfire and ends up becoming the very thing this school, and Campbell, needed.
