Do You Think Y'All Can Handle This?

Danny R. McBride is king of the demo tape in the upcoming April release The Foot Fist Way.

Not many people have yet heard about The Foot Fist Way. The upcoming Paramount Vantage comedy has earned a rating of 9.7 on IMDB and has the entire Judd Apatow crew obsessed. Jonah Hill has labelled the film the "Funniest movie of all time" and comedian Patton Oswalt has been “declaring [The Foot Fist Way] a sui generis work on par with The Big Lebowski”. Check out the red band trailer below.

I've watched the above trailer a few times today and it looks pretty funny. Although, I'm not sure whether or not Danny R. McBride can carry a film on his back so early in his career. The Georgia-born actor has never had a starring role and is mostly unknown to most moviegoers. Hopefully this film is his big break. I enjoyed McBride in Hot Rod and look forward to seeing him in this summer's Judd Apatow-produced Pineapple Express.

It's also hard to buy into all the praise for this film generated from the Apatow camp. While they may genuinely love the film it's also in their best interests to promote an actor they are using in one of their future projects. We'll see come April when the film hits cinemas. The proof is in the pudding.

The Foot Fist Way hits theatres on April 11th. Check back to MediaZEALOT for updates on The Foot Fist Way and Pineapple Express leading up to their release dates.
