From pub fu to salsa dancing, you never know what Nick Frost (The Cornetto Trilogy) is going to do next. In Cuban Fury, he plays Bruce Frost), a former dance prodigy now an office drone. When he discovers his hot new boss, Julia (Jones), loves to salsa dance, he tries to rekindle the fire in his heels and the snake in his hips so he can win her heart.
Cuban Fury dances into theaters on April 11th. Check out the trailer after the jump.
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…
