If you are a salsa-lover or you want to meet women, but you don’t know how to dance at all, well, it’s also the focus of a new romantic comedy Cuban Fury, coming out this year.
Based on an original idea by co-Cornettoer Nick Frost, the guy gets the chance to lead a movie of his own and is on a quest to learn how to dance again in order to impress his attractive, dance-loving American boss (Rashida Jones).
Helmed by NBC’s ‘Up All Night‘ director James Griffiths, this British comedy co-stars Chris O’Dowd (Bridesmaids) as a bitter rival to the lonely sad-sack named Bruce (Frost), along with Ian McShane, Kayvan Novak and Olivia Colman.
Cuban Fury opens in the UK on Valentine’s Day and is currently awaiting a U.S. release date.
You can watch the new trailer in the video player below.
1987: Poised to sweep the floor at the UK Junior Salsa Championships, 13-year-old Bruce Garrett has fire in his heels and the world at his feet… Until a freakish bullying incident robs him of his confidence and his life is diverted down a very different path. So it is that 22 years later, having locked away his boyhood dreams, Bruce finds himself out-of-shape, unloved and well and truly wedged in his “comfort zone”. It takes Julia (Jones), his smart, funny, gorgeous new American boss, to shake him from his emotional stupor and force him to re-examine his dull, passionless existence. But she’s out of his league, and with expert lothario and alpha-male office nemesis Drew (O’Dowd) overtly in pursuit of her, it’s enough to make Bruce want to give up on himself all over again. Can his loyal sister (Colman), childhood dance instructor (McShane), and crazy new amateur salsa pal (Novak) help Bruce unshackle his dancing beast, regain his long lost fury and claim the love of his life?
