So, if it's on Kotaku, you know it HAS to be big news!

"Dance dancing has never been so deadly. The FP is a film about a futuristic, post-apocalyptic world in which gang settle scores through Dance Dance Revolution-like gaming.

For those who missed this gem at South by Southwest, Drafthouse Films has decided to distribute the film after attending a screening at Montreal's Fantasia International Film Festival. The FP is expected to get a limited theatrical release in early 2012."

I think this will be worse than the last movie made about DDR. I watched most of that last one, but I don't think I could handle this one. Tongue

The last one was made by some director who, as far as I can tell, never played the game from Spain trying to present the game semi-seriously as the thin context for a romantic comedy / underdog sports movie.  It was the worst grossing movie in Spain on it's opening weekend, even though only one movie premiered against it, and it wasn't Spanish made.

The FP makes no attempt to take the game seriously (well, internally it's the most serious thing ever, but that's the premise of the movie - it wasn't even meant to be a full movie, the trailer was a joke project from 2007 that they later turned into a full movie) and the directors (one also plays the main character) admit they both used to play, so their treatment of the game will only have intentional inaccuracies.  The reviews I've seen of it from the South by Southwest showing were all positive and it was supposed one of the more enjoyable moments of the whole festival for some; despite being intentionally campy and over-the-top (always a bad thing), it apparently managed to properly balance everything that makes an unintentionally campy movie popular.

Personally, I've looking forward to it since I first heard about it months ago and am glad it's getting exposure outside of a single film festival.
