Here Comes The Boom starring Kevin James, Salma Hayek and a slew of other notable names from both Hollywood and the sport of mixed martial arts is starting to build a buzz in the MMA community, as well as the overall entertainment media.

Kevin James and Mayhem Miller in Here Comes the BoomExpected for release on Oct. 12, 2012, Here Comes The Boom follows former collegiate wrestler and 42-year-old high school biology teacher Scott Voss (played by MMA fan and active training participant Kevin James) as he competes in MMA to help raise money for his fledgling high school and the potential cancellation of the school’s music program. The high school music director is played by Henry Winkler (aka “The Fonz” for those of you old enough to remember Happy Days).

The trailer for Here Comes The Boom includes footage from Mark DellaGrotte’s Sityodong, features Bas Rutten as James’ friend and also a large role for UFC commentator and Brazilian jiu-jitsu practitioner Joe Rogan.

Jason “Mayhem” Miller, Wanderlei Silva, Chael Sonnen, and Arianny Celeste, as well as other notables from the sport of MMA are featured throughout the movie.

The addition of Salma Hayek as the object of James’ affection adds some additional credibility to the film. It should also be noted – and it’s visible in the trailer – that this is the first time in the Zuffa era of the UFC that the promotion has allowed anyone to use its brand name since purchasing the company in 2001.

“I like Kevin and he called me up and he’s passionate about the sport, he wanted to do this movie. We haven’t given the rights to anybody (before),” explained UFC president Dana White. “(In the movie) it’s UFC, we gave him the rights to it.”
