A pro hockey player is ordered to be a real tooth fairy as his penalty for dashing a youngster's hope.
Another sneak peek at comedy film "Tooth Fairy" has been shared through an international trailer. Although the 20th Century Fox has previously provided a preview video, the newly released clip manages to give a look at some never-before-seen scenes of the film.
Derek Thompson is a minor league hockey player whose nickname, "The Tooth Fairy", comes from his habit of knocking out opposing players' teeth. When he discourages a young boy's hope, Derek is sentenced to hard labor as a real tooth fairy, complete with the requisite tutu, wings and magic wand.
At first, the meanest man in hockey can't handle the task forced upon him. He finds himself bumbling and stumbling as he tries to furtively wing his way through strangers' homes, doing what tooth fairies do. But as he slowly adapts to his new position, he begins to rediscover his own forgotten dreams.
Coming from director Michael Lembeck, "Tooth Fairy" is starred by Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, who plays the major character. Joining him in the cast ensemble are Ashley Judd, Julie Andrews, and Billy Crystal. January 22, 2010 will be the date when the film hits U.S. theaters.
