It's DDR to the death in this poster for The FP

Jan. 30, 2012by: Alex Riviello

Sometimes you just have to appreciate that certain things exist. This is one of those times.

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." After hometown hero BTRO is slain on the dance platform by thug leader L Dubba E, his protégé younger brother JTRO (Jason Trost) goes into isolation, vowing never to duel again. One year later, The FP is in ruins, and JTRO must find the courage to return and restore order in a ruthless battle for revenge that can only leave one man dancing. From the producers of PARANORMAL ACTIVITY and featuring narration by James Remar (THE WARRIORS),

That's right, it's a sports epic about a killer "Dance Dance Revolution" tournament, and it looks absolutely ridiculous and amazing.

The ballsy Drafthouse Films is releasing THE FP, which will be having its premiere at The Cinefamily at the Silent Movie Theater on February 25th at 10:00pm before it opens theatrically on March 16th in theaters around the country. Check their official site for the full list.

Commenting on their filmmaking journey, co-director/writer/star Jason Trost said “it's both exciting and bittersweet. We've been working on this movie for so long, it's almost like sending our kid off to college. But, you know... hopefully our kid makes a name for itself and doesn't piss the world off too Co-director/cinematographer Brandon Trost added, "there is no better place to release our mutant spawn into the world than with Drafthouse Films. They totally get it."

If you haven't, watch this SXSW trailer and be happy to live in this world.

This could be fun. It's like Bloodsport but on the dance floor, sort of. Reminds me of Sophie Ellis Baxter's song - "Murder on the Dance Floor".

All the people giving a negative rating do understand that... this isn't meant to be taken seriously and evaluated as such... right?
... Right? No? They think it is serious... oh, well that's sad.

If you or any one else wants to watch it that's fine, I'm not judging those who do, yes I know it's a satire, but I don't sit well with people droppin N bombs just to drop them. But if you think that's funny, that's your prerogative. If it makes me old school oh well, but anyone who doesn't understand what the "big deal" is about the N word, then to me that's sad.

Somebody Slap This Motherfucker

Dumb idea that was written in ebonics and uses the bullshit excuse that anybody can be a nigger because it means stubborn in the dictionary. As a black man I say no it does not. I don't even play that shit when black people say it around me. Let the mothafucka have an L.A. screening. I'd be glad to give him a history lesson.

Looks funny to me...

I read good things about it from when it played SXSW. There's a good review of it on CHUD.

I just lost 2 minutes and 30 seconds of my life and I want them back. The one thing I can say is this film gives me great confidence that the screenplay I just completed will definitely be made into a movie one day as I know for a fact that it's better than the pile of retarded monkey crap that "The FP" is.

Sooo... this is a joke, right? Nobody actually wasted time and money turning this into a whole movie... did they? "From the producers of Paranormal Activity." That actually explains a lot.

They should do it with the kinect and the Just Dance video game instead...oh wait is this Step Up set in the future?. Even they made a similar film in Spain called La Maquina de Bailar. Search imdb.com.
