Drafthouse Films announced today that The FP is available to screen nationwide through Tugg at Tugg.com/TheFP. Fans can now bring the film to their local theaters. Here's the announcement:

At the 2012 SXSW Film Festival today, Drafthouse Films announced THE FP is available to screen in cities nationwide through Tugg, Inc. (“Tugg”), a collective action web platform that enables moviegoers to choose the films that play in their local theaters. Starting today, fans can sign up to bring THE FP to their theater to share this manic, warped, ambitious, hilarious and utterly original vision of a dystopian world where turf battles are settled by the competitive dance video game “Beat Beat Revelation.” THE FP will be available through Tugg in conjunction with its theatrical release in select cities Friday, March 16.

THE FP took SXSW 2011 by storm with its World Premiere at SXFantastic, programmed by Fantastic Fest. A ferocious nod to big-budget studio action fare and underdog sports dramas of the 1980s, THE FP is a loving homage to everything from ROCKY IV to THE WARRIORS and has beencalled “loud, furious & recklessly funny” (Indiewire) and “vulgar, hilarious and kind of amazing… THE FP is a certifiably insane experience” (Movies.com).

"Tugg provides a platform for sharing THE FP in a way that we always imagined it should be experienced – with a group of friends and fellow film fans that got together to see it in the theater because one of them heard about this batsh*t insane film about deadly competitive dance video games that is fashioned after the 80s films we love. We're thrilled that audiences everywhere, including the Frazier Parks of the world, will have the chance to bring this film to their theater by demand," said Jason Trost, Co-Director/Writer/Star.

“THE FP is a film that was made to be experienced communally with a big group howling together at the unhinged fun this film offers. We couldn’t be more excited to give fans a chance to craft that kind of experience at the theater through Tugg’s innovative platform,” said Drafthouse Films CEO Tim League.
