In the new red band trailer for the upcoming Ice Cube-vs-Charlie Day comedy "Fist Fight," Ice Cube plays a fed-up teacher at a crappy high school. He knows that if he were to physically harm a student, he would immediately be thrown into jail. So, he takes all his pent-up frustrations out on the teacher he likes the least (that would be Charlie Day) -- and challenges him to an old-fashioned after-school fist fight. It doesn't make a whole lot of sense, other than it's the last day of school -- which means, all rules are likely thrown out the window. So, anything can happen to anyone at anytime.
"It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" director Richie Keen makes his feature directorial debut with "Fist Fight," which co-stars Jillian Bell, Tracy Morgan, Dean Norris, and Christina Hendricks. It's slated for a February 17 release.
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.
