Ice Cube has a bone to pick with Charlie Day in the new comedy “Fist Fight.” When wimpy English teacher Andy Campbell (Day) gets his feared colleague Ron Strickland (Cube) fired, Strickland challenges him to an old-fashioned throw down in the parking lot after school. Warner Bros. released the first trailer and new poster for the film, which you can check out below.

Directed by Richie Keen (who’s making his feature directorial debut), and written by Evan Susser and Van Robichaux, the trailer shows as the news of the fight spreads and how Campbell enlists the help of his school buddies to help him prepare for the brawl.
