Nick Frost is putting himself out there. Just as his Cornetto Trilogy collaborators Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg are working on their own individual projects, Frost stars in his first solo lead role in the new romantic comedy Cuban Fury, a warm underdog story emphasizing the importance of passion and the value of challenging oneself.
Frost also lives the movie's message by taking on a technically-demanding role: Cuban Fury is a dance movie, and Frost plays Bruce Garrett, a former child salsa prodigy bullied into giving up his dream now living a safe adult life working for an industrial manufacturing company.

Here's the brand new US trailer for the movie,which looks pretty good from here. You can watch the UK trailer, which has mostly different footage, below:
Yes, Nick Frost (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz) and Chris O'Dowd (Bridesmaids, The IT Crowd) are playing rival salsa dancers in a new movie called Cuban Fury, and we have the photos to prove it. Collider obtained this picture and two more (embedded below after the jump) from the movie that look pretty ridiculous. Cuban Fury stars Frost as a former teen salsa prodigy who abandoned his dreams after a freak accident. He then returns to salsa dancing 20-odd years later to impress his boss (Rashida Jones), becoming rivals with his alpha male co-worker (O'Dowd).
