Early last year I called The FP a “film that happens to you in the best way possible, and one you aren’t going to forget” and the folks over at Drafthouse Film agreed enough with me and the other FP fans to pick it up for distribution. Well now it’s time for that wicked partnership to bear its fruit as we get our first official one-sheet for the film (which takes over duties from a stellar Tyler Stout screenprint used since SXSW), and a list of cites in which the film will have a theatrical release beginning March 16th, which you can check out below.

A ferocious nod to big-budget studio action fare and underdog sports dramas of the 1980s, THE FP is a high-concept comedy set in a dystopian near future where a relentless turf war rages. Two rival gangs feud for control of rural wasteland Frazier Park in the deadly arena of competitive dance video game “Beat-Beat Revelation.”

I have to assume another trailer is on its way soon too. I wonder what they’ll come up with- this is a weird one to sell to the mainstream crowd (though I can tell just by the choice of the specific Atlanta theater that they’re being strategic with this release and going after younger markets).

Here’s the current trailer
