Here comes ‘Here Comes the Boom’


The release of the Mark Wahlberg movie “Ted” got us wondering about another film that was shot here around the same time.What’s become of “Here Comes the Boom,” the comedy starring Kevin James as a teacher who moonlights as a mixed martial arts fighter to raise money for his cash-strapped school? Well, the trailer for the movie, which also stars Salma Hayek and Henry Winkler , finally hit the Web Wednesday. Judging from the trailer, the movie looks like something Adam Sandler might make, which isn’t surprising considering it’s directed by Frank Coraci , whose credits include “The Waterboy” and “The Wedding Singer.” “Here Comes the Boom” is scheduled to arrive in theaters Oct. 12.
