On the last day of the school year, teachers and students usually hustle out the door as quick as possible to begin their summer vacation, but in Warner Bros. upcoming comedy film Fist Fight, everyone will stick around after the bell rings to watch two high school teachers, played by Ice Cube (Ride Along) and Charlie Day (It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia), square off and throw down in the parking lot.
Check out the first official trailer in the video above.
On the last day of the year, mild-mannered high school English teacher Andy Campbell (Charlie 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.
“Fist Fight” also stars Tracy Morgan (30 Rock), Jillian Bell (22 Jump Street), Dean Norris (Breaking Bad), Christina Hendricks (Mad Men), Dennis Haysbert (The Unit), and JoAnna Garcia Swisher (The Astronaut Wives Club).
Directed by Richie Keen (It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia) and written By Van Robichaux (Seth Rogen = Worst Person in the World ) and Evan Susser (The Zombie Solution).
The film is being produced by Shawn Levy, Max Greenfield, John Rickard, and Dan Cohen.
Warner Bros. Pictures' Fist Fight will be in theaters February 17, 2017.
