Images: Beats Of Rage Poster Released - Sequel To The Cult Hit The FP

The FP returns

The 2011 cult hit The FP is returning with a sequel titled Beats Of Rage a poster has just been released created by Tom Hodge of The Dude Designs. passion project. The FP was an idea that Jason Trost initially came up with when he was 16 years old playing Dance Dance Revolution in Reno, Nevada. From that point on, the project took nearly a decade to make and release. With a $45,000 dollar budget and a bunch of friends helping make the film, the end result was a weird blend of '80s and '90s nostalgia in a post-apocalyptic setting. Now after a successful Crowdfunding campaign, the sequel is on its way. Check out all of the details from the press release below.

“We wanted everything about Beats of Rage to build on and do more of what people loved in The FP,” Trost said. “My hope is that, when they see this super badass poster by Tom Hodge, people will have a sense of how much fun the movie is, and the kind of wild ride they’re in for.”

Created by hand-drawn poster legend Thomas Hodge (The Dude Designs), the official poster for Beats of Rage features a gleaming, pitch-perfect title treatment inspired by the arcade game at the heart of the FP universe, where gangs settle turfwars with battles on “Beat Beat Revalation” dance decks. Flames explode behind it.

At the center of the action, surrounded by characters dressed in dystopian Americana, Beat-Beat champion JTRO (hero of the first film, played by the multi-tooled Trost) has returned. He’s ready for a fight. Looming threateningly over them all in a column of blue and purple light is the sole collector himself, AK-47.

Beats of Rage is a “ghetto-ass fantasy” set in an apocalyptic world locked in a booze drought. It continues the story of fan-favorite JTRO, a Beat-Beating champion from a legendary bloodline of beat-beaters.

Despite hanging up his boots following the events of The FP, JTRO must return to the blood sport of Beat-Beat Revelation one last time. JTRO and KCDC – his mystical hype man – will quest deep into The Wastes, a land decimated by the Beat Wars, to compete in the ancient Beat-Beat tournament, “Beats of Rage,” face AK-47 – and, hopefully, save the world.

Trost plans to debut the film at “a major U.S. genre festival” this October, with more information to be announced on Trost’s Facebook page soon.
