"Here Comes the Boom," folks! And by "boom," we mean the sound of Kevin James falling to the canvas after a giant MMA fighter has just pounded the unholy hell out of him.

James, mixed martial arts and a brand new trailer? Hey, don't say we never gave you anything.

Of course, you may just be wondering to yourself, "But wait, NextMovie. How on Earth could lovable, roly poly Kevin James ever get mixed up in something as dangerous as battling in the octagon?" Glad you asked.

The answer, it turns out, is that in "Here Comes the Boom," James plays a well-meaning but hapless high school teacher. When his school faces serious budget cuts that are going to result in all extracurricular activities being canceled, he comes up with a truly dumb plan to raise money: Become an MMA warrior. And if he's really lucky, he may even manage to impress Salma Hayek, who co-stars as literally the hottest teacher in the history of high school.

Add in comedy legend Henry Winkler and you have the best version of "Nacho Libre" not set in Mexico. Check it out, courtesy of First Showing — and get ready to feel the "Boom."
