Indie Trailer Sunday: Official Red Band for Drafthouse Films' 'The FP'
"Hey L Dubba E, I challenge you to a beat off!" Today's indie trailer is a red band for a film called The FP, directed by the Trost Brothers being distributed by Drafthouse Films. It's essentially The Warriors meets Dance Dance Revolution, the video game, in some crazy dark comedy mayhem. Director Jason Trost also stars as JTRO with Lee Valmassy as L Dubba E, Art Hsu, Caitlyn Folley, Nick Principe and Brandon Barrera as BTRO. This actually looks surprisingly good, like a great cult classic in the making. There's a lot of good humor in it. Though I do think this trailer shows pretty much everything up until the end, maybe too much.
Watch the new official red band trailer for the Trost Brothers' The FP, via YouTube:
In a dystopian future, a relentless turf war rages. Two rival gangs feud for control of rural wasteland Frazier Park ('The FP') in the deadly arena of competitive dance-fight video game "Beat-Beat Revelation."
The FP was written and directed by brothers Brandon Trost and Jason Trost, previously behind Vs and the short The Day the Dead Weren't Dead. This first premiered at the SXSW Film Festival last year, and also played at Fantasia and Fantastic Fest, where it was picked up by Drafthouse Films. They're bringing The FP to limited theaters and VOD starting March 16th next month. For release info, visit their official website.
