Beastie Boy Adam Yauch had directed a celeb-festooned short film, Fight for Your Right Revisited, a sequel of sorts to the Beasties’ classic video for “(You Gotta) Fight for Your Right (to Party!)”. The new film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival’s Short Film Program. Well, the 22-minute flick is set to be released in a few weeks, and you can get a sense of what it is by checking out the trailer below, which features snippets of the new Beasties song “Make Some Noise”, from their forthcoming LP Hot Sauce Committee Pt. 2. According to the Beasties’ camp, the song and Hot Sauce cut “Too Many Rappers” are both featured in the film.
The clip features famous folks like Susan Sarandon, Elijah Wood, Will Ferrell, Jack Black, Seth Rogen, Jason Schwartzman, John C. Reilly, Will Arnett, and Danny McBride; it looks as if the film’s plot may involve an older, beer-chugging, über-obnoxious “future version” of the Beastie Boys going back to the past and wreaking havoc on a younger Beastie Boys. Definitely prime comedic material.
