Exclusive: 'Fat Kid Rules the World' Clip

The glorious resurrection of "Scream" villain Matthew Lillard's career -- starting in earnest with "The Descendants" in 2011 -- continues with his promising feature-length directorial debut, "Fat Kid Rules the World."

Based on a young adult novel by KL Going, "Fat Kid" interrupts an unhappy teenager on the verge of ending his life. A well-timed encounter with a one-time guitar legend (and current homeless addict) has the potential to turn everything around for the titular fat kid -- with the incredible power of punk music.

Check out the artfully awkward scene from "Fat Kid Rules the World" below, and catch the movie in limited release this Friday, if you're in New York (or in L.A. theaters on October 12).
