Last week, the red-band trailer for The FP went online, and today Drafthouse Films has released the green-band version.  Both trailers do a good job of setting up the movie’s premise: With an 80s-style vibe, the plot pits two gangs against each other, and their differences are settled by playing “Beat Beat Revolution” (based off the real-world rhythm-dance game Dance Dance Revolution).  The red-band version is heavy on the swearing, but it also does a better job of showing off the fun dialogue and intentionally corny lines like “He wasn’t expecting the unexpected!”  The FP may seem like a commercial or a comedy sketch gone on too long, but I’m going to trust the positive word from the film’s premiere at last year’s SXSW Film Festival.

Hit the jump to check out the trailers.  The film stars Jason Trost, Lee Valmassy, Art Hsu, Caitlyn Folley, Nick Principe, Brandon Barrera, James DeBello, Sean Whalen, and James RemarThe FP opens March 16th.

Here’s the official synopsis for The FP:

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), THE FP is a fury of fierce footwork, triumphant montages and neon street wear that Moviefone calls “a rare ready-made cult hit.”
