The best part of most film festivals usually arrives every day around midnight, when some of the dramatic snoozers get put to rest so that the Sci-Fi and Horror gems can come out and play.  Unfortunately, for reasons I can’t even seem to explain to myself, I managed to completely gloss over the premiere of The FP at this year’s SXSW festival.  Harry over at Ain’t It Cool News however, was kind enough to rub it in my face by making the trailer widely available on his own website.

This film marks the first full length feature from the Trost Brothers (Brandon and Jason), and is based on the 2007 short film of the same name.  The story, set 200 years in the future, revolves around a deadly spinoff of Dance Dance Revolution, and mans quest to avenge the brother he lost to the game’s ruthless champion.  Think Jean-Claude Van Damme’s Kickboxer, but 200 years in the future, and instead of kickboxing, think Dance Dance Revolution.

It is blatantly clear that the two Trost Brothers have their tongues firmly planted in their cheeks on this one.  With a $1,000,000.00 budget and 20+ plus years of industry experience, Jason and Brandon’s ability to execute is not an issue.  Whether the joke can hold its own for the film’s 83 minute run time, is another story completely.  I guess we’ll have to wait until the films commercial release to find out.
