AICN Exclusive Premiere: THE FP - playing tonight at Alamo South!

Hey folks, Harry here...  still trashed from another really hard day, and one of the many films playing SXSW that I wish I was seeing is...  THE FP from the Trost Brothers.  This is a seemingly post-apocalyptic future world with underground...  well, you simply have to see the trailer.

I forgot to mention, we've been given the trailer tonight to premiere with enough time for you to possibly run down and see it, if you dare.  I've heard this is pretty damn funny - and the trailer is INSANE!  MAD MAX meets THE WIZARD.   Crazy man!

This is an AICN Premiere! And crazy films like these are the sorts we love to support! If you're dying to check the whole thing out, it's playing a midnight show at ALAMO SOUTH tonight! Apparently some of these haven't filled up, if you're able, you might want to check it out!

    Best Film at SX

    by Wehmenstein

    This film absolutely blew me away. Beautifully shot and pitch perfectly acted throughout.

    It was the worst trailer in history...until the tits

    by Mel

    This is fucking retarded. Ever since Snakes on a Plane made money at the box office with a stupid name/premise now we've got a lot of movies trying to do the same. Luckily, all those movies have bombed, and I'm sure no one is going to see this retarded piece of shit, either. But hey, when it comes out on DVD at least I'm sure aicn will get a quote on the case claiming it's a masterpiece, right?

    Dance, Dance Revolution: Electric Boogaloo?

    by Cheif Brody

    Seriously? This looked like an SNL Digital Short. I was waiting for Adam Samberg to show up with a lazer cat at any moment. <p> wehmenstein...If this turd was the best film at SX...I'm glad I saved my airfare. This thing looked like a early 1990's straight to DVD shitfest. <p> SyFy would be embarrassed by this production.

    These folks made a lot of people mad at SXSW

    I've heard it's better if no one involved is in the room.

    this movie ROCKS!

    by DrakeSavageBalls

    for you haters, if you knew the no-budget this was made on, and the heart that went into making it, you would have some respect for a true independent film. This is not some A/B list actor's pet project they decided to try to be a "more serious/artsy" actor in. This shit is raw like Clerks. The language is all it's own. The whole thing is batshit crazy. Think Black Dynamite, only white trash wiggers battling to the death on a video game. If Charlie Sheen ate a blu-ray copy of The Warrior's, chased it with meth and washed it down with Four-Loko, all while banging a $5 casino elevator hooker greek style, the next morning he would shit "The FP" while delivering a web-rant.

    A bit early for April Fools, ain't it?

    by MrMysteryGuest

    Tits and swearing in a green band trailer? Ha...ha..........ha...............ha.

    themehman dont compare this piece of shit to Clerks

    by Mel

    How dare you. What the fuck does this have to do with Clerks? Because both movies had bad language? Well fuck...let's compare it to Citizen Kane because both movies had costumes. This movie is clearly retarded. It's in the same genre as "Rubber." A movie made by a crackhead that thinks he's funny. A note to all the hacks who try this stupid shit: At least put a live action blowjob in your movie like The Brown Bunny so people will at least do a google video search and know your movie exists.

  • March 19, 2011, 11:32 p.m. CST

    Oh, and it doesn't have a "language all its own"

    by Mel

    All I heard in that trailer was a bunch of gay jive talking. Nothing original. Nothing mildly funny. "oh snap word up dawg g money" (I hope people think its is the lol's!)

    Worst film of SXSW...or ever?

    by Stephen Bohls

    I don't mean to dis something AICN has sponsored, but I do feel some responsibility to warn people that this film was the worst thing I've ever experienced on a screen and speakers. It is horrible beyond words, not so bad you can just laugh at it, just bad as in poking one in the eye with a sharp stick. Really really really awful. Guys who made this: please quit now and save us all any further pain of your immature excuses for a movie.

    melG, you ignorant slut,

    by DrakeSavageBalls

    I have seen the finished product, you have not. but feel free, judge it by the trailer you fuck-tard waste of semen. whatever you do, don't take the time to read the reviews on chud or twitchfilm or google search for them your lazy-ass-self. As for comparing it to Clerks. I will compare it to the video your dad has on his back-up hard drive of him doing very rude things to your very willing mother, if I chose to. (actually, I'm saving that comparison for my "Tree of Life" review) Just because Kevin Smith has man-tits, doesn't mean you have to suck from them. Clerks was great, but it was flawed. Do you need to take a moment to realize that? You'll waste 83 minutes on some other dumb-ass activity, watch The FP instead. The final shot alone is worthy of you to GET ON YOUR KNEES BITCH AND KNEEL BEFORE J-TRO!!!!! SHIT'S TOUGH IN THE FP, FOR REALS, YO!

    for reals...

    by DrakeSavageBalls

    "Like Evil Dead introduced Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell, I expect this to be the beginning of the Trost genre." “The FP cliff-dives from the first scene and does not let up.  Its production design, costuming and action sequences feel borne of a PCP bender, and for that I give it a warm salute.” “My own personal experience was that of boisterous, bone-level laughter that didn’t stop for the first twenty minutes, until the film literally broke me. “ “I’m a huge fan of THE FP – I think it is one of the most original movies I’ve seen recently, and I think the Trost family will do great things.” Tim League
