Sony Pictures released the very first trailer for the upcoming comedy "Here comes the Boom". This is the movie Charice Pempengco mentioned last year that she shoot and officially her second film after Alvin and the Chipmunks 2. Watch the trailer after the jump.
Former collegiate wrester Scott Voss (James) is a 42-year-old apathetic biology teacher in a failing high school. When cutbacks threaten to cancel the music program and lay off its teacher (Henry Winkler,) Scott begins to raise money by moonlighting as a mixed martial arts fighter. Everyone thinks Scott is crazy – most of all the school nurse, Bella (Hayek) and – but in his quest, Scott gains something he never expected as he becomes a sensation that rallies the entire school.
It seems that Charice will be playing a bigger role this time and she will be joined by another pinoy Reggie Lee (Grimm) as her dad. The plot sounds like a little mix of Alvin and the Chipmunks 2 and Nacho Libre (MMA style). I don't really set high standards for comedy but as long as it is hilarious and entertaining, I'm up for it.
Opening in October 2012 on cinemas to be distributed by Columbia Pictures, local office of Sony Pictures Releasing International.
