Are you looking for an outrageous comedy movie that will make you forget about all the troubles in the world for an hour or two? We got the perfect one for you. Charlie Day and Ice Cube are teaming up to create one of the most epic battles in movie history.
Fist Fight has a pretty simple story: a mild-mannered teacher (Day) does something to piss off the most feared teacher (Cube) in the school, and gets challenged to a fist fight following the last day of school.
This movie won’t win any awards, but it does look incredibly entertaining. The Day/Cube combination is also intriguing and fresh. They could have easily went with someone like Will Ferrell to play Day’s character.
In addition to Cube and Day, the movie also stars Jillian Bell, Tracy Morgan, Christina Hendricks and Dean Norris.
Director Richie Keen makes his feature film debut with this movie. He’s been hanging out on the TV side for most of his career, and regularly worked on It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, which explains the Charlie Day connection.
Check out the official synopsis and trailer below. It’s scheduled to hit theaters 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.”
