The Beastie Boys released a trailer Thursday for their 30-minute short ‘Fight for Your Right — Revisited’ in support of the trio’s forthcoming new album ‘Hot Sauce Committee Part Two.’ And it’s a doozy.
As MGM used to say, there’s more stars here than in the heavens: Danny McBride, Seth Rogen, Elijah Wood, Will Ferrell, John C. Reilly, Jack Black, Rainn Wilson, Rashida Jones, Jason Schwartzman, Ted Danson, Steve Buscemi, Stanley Tucci, Susan Sarandon, Chloë Sevigny, Will Arnett, Kirsten Dunst, Maya Rudolph, Martin Starr, Laura Dern, David Cross, Orlando Bloom and Zach Galifianakis (not all are in the trailer — see who you can spot after the jump).
We haven’t seen the film — it premiered at this year’s Sundance Film Festival — but the video gives you an idea of the insanity that goes on.
Rogen portrays the Beasties’ Michael “Mike D” Diamond, Wood plays Adam “Ad-Rock” Horovitz and McBride takes the role of Adam (MCA) Yauch in an exploration of what happened after the party in the group’s breakout 1986 video ‘(You Gotta) Fight for Your Right (to Party).’ There’s all kinds of wildness and havoc-making, especially when the trio meet up with themselves from 25 years in the future: Ferrell as Ad-Rock, Reilly as Mike D and Black as MCA. (In the movie, the fun is broken up by a trio of NYC cops, played by the Beastie Boys).
‘Hot Sauce Committee Part Two’ will be on store shelves May 3 but in the meantime the Beasties have provided a sample of one of the cuts, ‘Make Some Noise.’
Watch the video after the jump. But beware: it’s red-banded, meaning four-letter words.
