Ice Cube and Charlie Day are two teachers going head to head in the upcoming comedy Fist Fight.

The first trailer has been released for the film, which tells of Andy Campbell (Day), a mild-mannered high school English teacher who finds himself scheduled for an old-fashioned throw down with his much tougher and deeply feared colleague, Ron Strickland (Ice Cube).

This first trailer is more of the teaser variety, but it still offers up a good amount of footage of what could be a very funny film. Unless the actual fist fight itself goes for the length of a feature film, most of the film tells of the road to said conflict, which will hopefully make for some solid laughs. We’ll know more as the marketing picks up momentum.

Fist Fight, also starring Tracy Morgan, Jillian Bell, Dean Norris, Christina Hendricks, Dennis Haysbert and JoAnna Garcia Swisher, will hit Australian cinemas on February 16 and U.S. cinemas on February 17, 2017.




Rundown for Fist Fight:

Ice Cube and Charlie Day star as high school teachers prepared to solve their differences the hard way in the comedy FIST FIGHT directed by Richie Keen (“It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia”)

On the last day of the year, mild-mannered high school English teacher Andy Campbell (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”).

Keen directs from a screenplay by Van Robichaux & Evan Susser (Funny or Die’s “What’s Going On? With Mike Mitchell”), story by Van Robichaux & Evan Susser and Max Greenfield.
