Debut Trailer of Kevin James in Here Comes The Boom

Here Comes The BoomHere’s the debut trailer from Frank Coraci’s, ‘Here Comes the Boom. Sony has just released it. It’s about a high school teacher (James) who becomes a mixed martial arts fighter with the hopes to make enough money to save his school.


I bet everyone in Hollywood read that script and thought Kevin james. But seriously, Ever since Paul Blart: Mall Cop became a surprisingly big success in January of 2009, Kevin James has been an unlikely movie star on the rise, whether joining his buddy Adam Sandler in a hit as big (and terrible) as Grown Ups or leading things for himself in Zookeeper, which was considered a disappointment by some but still made $170 million worldwide. And while it’s been easy to describe a lot of his humor so far as “fat man fall down,” he seems to be going for a little more depth and actual emotion in Here Comes The Boom.


I know nobody really saw Warrior last year, but still, If you watched the movie Warrior and thought, “This movie needs more Kevin James,” then today is your lucky day. I have no idea how Salma Hayek keeps getting wrangled into these movies– she’s in Grown Ups and the upcoming Grown Ups 2 as well– but James at least looks to be once again pulling serious comedic weight, while also looking more muscular and svelte than ever.


‘Boom’ appears to be another harmless family comedy from James, though we’re not sure what audience he’s trying to go for here. Will mixed martial arts fans flock to the theater to see a shirtless Kevin James try and submit a guy twenty years younger than him? Maybe not, but parents might find it funny and take their kids… but then the notion of violence may turn some of them off to the film. Maybe they should throw a circus bear in there with him.
