Drafthouse Films presents a pulse-pounding feature that takes you into the fierce and fearsome realm of Frazier Park, better known to its wily locals as The FP. This is a dystopian wasteland where rage-filled gangs take their brutal battles to the streets in the form of the ultimate dance-fight video game "Beat-Beat Revelation." But the underground rivalry between the 248 and the 245 rises to a bloody new level of carnage when local hero BTRO (Brandon Barrera) is slain while busting moves against the golden-grilled L Dubba E (Lee Valmassy). Devastated by the loss of his beloved older brother and dancing mentor, 248er JTRO (Jason Trost) goes into hiding, and when he emerges a year later, discovers the town he once called his own is very nearly a place without hope. Now JTRO must face off against the two-stepper who killed his brother in an epic dance showdown that will determine the future of the FP forever.


The FP is a coarse and campy parody that pays mocking homage to a wide array of action flicks and gang dramas with its over-the-top dialogue and wildly styled characters. It's sure to delight midnight moviegoers with its willful wild streak and plethora of Easter eggs for action fans. One of more noteworthy elements of nostalgia is that The Warriors' own James Remar serves as the comedy's gravel-voiced narrator. What other allusions can you make out in the film's neon-coated trailer?

The FP opens in select theaters March 16th. To see if it's coming to a theater near you, check here.
