There’s a brand spankin’ new trailer for the upcoming comedy Fist Fight, and this one’s a doozy. It’s Red Band, so you know that it won’t be pulling any punches- literally or figuratively- as it gives you the latest taste of what to expect when Ice Cube and Charlie Day face off later this month.

You can check out the all-new Red Band trailer for Fist Fight right here:

Ice Cube and Charlie Day star as high school teachers prepared to solve their differences the hard way. On the last day of the school year, mild-mannered high school English teacher Andy Campbell (Day) is trying his best to keep it together amidst outrageous senior pranks, a dysfunctional administration and budget cuts that are putting his job on the line just as his wife is expecting their second baby. But things go from bad to worse when Campbell crosses the school’s toughest and most fearedteacher, Ron Strickland (Ice Cube), causing Strickland to be fired. To Campbell’s shock—not to mention utter terror—Strickland responds by challenging him to a fist fight after school. News of the fight spreads like wildfire as Campbell takes ever more desperate measures to avoid getting the crap beaten out of him. But if he actually shows up and throws down, it may end up being the very thing this school, and Andy Campbell, needed.

Fist Fight will also feature the acting talents of Tracy Morgan, Jillian Bell, Dean Norris, Christina Hendricks, Dennis Haysbert, JoAnna Garcia Swisher, and Kumail Nanjiani. It’s based on a screenplay by Van Robichaux & Evan Susser, and was directed by Richie Keen.

Fist Fight will wreak havoc in a schoolyard near you onF February 17.
