Beastie Boys debut epic star-studded trailer

As a promo for their long-awaited eighth album, Hot Sauce Committee Part Two, the Beastie Boys have released the trailer below for Fight For Your Right Revisited, a short film and sequel to the “Fight For Your Right” video that will be released with the album. It stars Will Ferrell, Seth Rogen, Danny McBride, Jack Black, John C. Reilly, Ted Danson, Elijah Wood, Jason Schwartzman, Chloe Sevigny, Stanley Tucci, Will Arnet, Stanley Tucci and Susan Sarandon, among others. It was produced by Beastie Adam “MCA” Yauch’s indie film house Oscilloscope Laboratories. Here’s the original “Fight for your Right” video, circa 1986. The Beastie Blog refers to the movie as a “long-ass video thing,” and lets you check out the first track off the album, “Make Some Noise.” Whatever they plan to do with this video thing, it’s already shaping up to be epic.
