Kevin James fights in 'Here Comes the Boom'

Posted on

How do you fix America’s schools? In the new trailer for Here Comes the Boom, the answer is a few blows to the face.

Kevin James plays Scott Voss, a complacent high school biology teacher past his glory days. When the school cancels all extracurricular activities due to a budget deficit, Scott tries to raise thousands of dollars to save them by learning mixed martial arts and becoming a human punching bag.

Here Comes the Boom hits theaters Oct. 12.
