Let’s face facts, Nick Frost is a very funny guy. As one half of a dynamic duo with Simon Pegg, he’s entertained us in countless films such as Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz and the recent The World’s End. But now, he’s going it solo in his latest big screen adventure Cuban Fury.
The title alone should be enough for you to see this one. But to help even more, here’s a synopsis:
In 1987 a thirteen-year-old natural born dancer with fire in his heels and snakes in his hips is working himself up to explode all over the UK Junior Salsa Championships. But then: a freakish bullying incident on the mean streets of London robs him of his confidence, and our young hero finds his life diverted down a very different path.
Twenty-two-years later, an adult Bruce Garrett (Nick Frost) finds himself out-of-shape and unloved – trapped in a downward spiral of self-pity, repression and Nando’s take-outs. Only Julia (Rashida Jones), his smart, funny, gorgeous new American boss, gives him reason to live. But she’s untouchable; out of his league.
Luckily for him, she also has a secret passion. Thus, Bruce is once again brought face-to-face with the darkest and most powerful of his inner demons. Somehow, someway, Bruce must learn how to unshackle his dancing beast, regain his long lost fury and claim the love of his life…and he’s going to do it all On The Dance Floor…
Look for Cuban Fury, which also stars Rashida Jones and Chris O’Dowd, to heat things up in theaters on April 11. Check out the trailer after the break.
