Drafthouse Films’ THE FP Opens In Select Theaters Today!

The Drafthouse Films' release THE FP is in theaters today! To celebrate this momentous premiere, we've got loads of dope scoop for you. This outrageous, post-apocalyptic, video game dance battle riot has received a ton of great press and reviews. You've never seen anything like it, so be sure to catch it on the big screen in select cities. Watch the first ten minutes to get a taste of this fully singular movie.

Wired calls THE FP an "instant cult classic."  Check out their feature on the film's underground journey to the big screen.

The filmmakers sat down with Fandango to offer their playlist of '80s movies referenced in or influencing THE FP. WARRIORS, THE KARATE KID, TMNT and more!

The making of THE FP was a serious family affair, co-directed by brothers Brandon and Jason Trost. Their sister Sarah Trost, a former PROJECT RUNWAY contestant, designed and created all of the incredible costumes herself. 

Watch this featurette on Sarah's rad designs.

Amazing, right? I would seriously kill to own any of Stacy's badass ensembs. Fortunately, Sarah Trost has me covered. Check out her DIY costume guide to creating three different looks for your own FP-inspired costumes.
