New trailer and first clip from Nick Frost's salsa comedy Cuban Fury
What did you guys think of the first trailer for CUBAN FURY? I enjoyed it more than I probably should, but I can't resist the combination of Nick Frost, Chris O'Dowd, and Ian McShane. A new trailer and the first clip for the upcoming comedy have been released, revealing more silly salsa dancing from Frost and O'Dowd.
"First Dance Class" Clip
Former teen salsa champion Bruce Garrett (Frost) is now a sad-sack engineer. But his passion for dancing is re-ignited by his crush on his gorgeous new boss Julia (Rashida Jones) and the only way he can win her over is by mastering the art of dance. Now all Bruce needs to do is rediscover his inner passion.
CUBAN FURY kind of reminds me of 2007's RUN, FAT BOY, RUN with Simon Pegg, and it's not just because the two actors have worked together numerous times. Both films feature an underdog trying to win the heart of a woman, and both of the leads' friends are played by hilarious Irish actors; Chris O'Dowd in CUBAN FURY and Dylan Moran in RUN, FAT BOY, RUN. Look, I'm not expecting CUBAN FURY to be amazing, but I still think it could be a very funny, if not very deep, film.
No word on when CUBAN FURY will hit theaters in the United States, but it will be released in the U.K. on February 14th, 2014.
