Everybody cut, everybody cut - it's the trailer and poster for the Footloose remake

06.21.2011

You're playing so cool. Obeying every rule. Dig way down in your heart, you're burning, yearning for somebody to tell you that life ain't passing you by. I'm trying to tell you it will if you don't even try. You can fly if you'd only cut loose. Footloose.

The immortal words of Kenny Loggins, once danced to by Walkman-wearing culture-shocked teen Kevin Bacon, are surely just as true today as they're brought to life by... whoever this new FOOTLOOSE kid is.

The remake of the 1984 fave (?) comes from director Craig Brewer (HUSTLE AND FLOW) and also features Dennis Quaid, Andie McDowell, Julianne Hough, and small-town kooks who despise the leg-shaking joys of the hippity hop and the rock 'n roll.

The synopsis, if you really need one: Ren MacCormack (played by newcomer Kenny Wormald) is transplanted from Boston to the small southern town of Bomont where he experiences a heavy dose of culture shock. A few years prior, the community was rocked by a tragic accident that killed five teenagers after a night out and Bomont’s local councilmen and the beloved Reverend Shaw Moore (Dennis Quaid) responded by implementing ordinances that prohibit loud music and dancing. Not one to bow to the status quo, Ren challenges the ban, revitalizing the town and falling in love with the minister’s troubled daughter Ariel (Julianne Hough) in the process.

So...same script, same outfits, just different time period and dance moves...? I'll support the cheese fest that is the original, but this just looks embarassing.

WOW

WHY?! who sat down and decided there had to be a remake to Footloose? oh lets show today's youth a new version! NOOO, you are better off re-releasing the Kevin Bacon classic as a anniversary showing then produce a new version.
I cant stand why hollywood had to remake,presquel, etc classics...They are better off making a straight to DVD sequel that nobody will care too much about then remaking a classic.

It looks really bad. BUUUT, Julianne Hough is a stone fox. Also, the Quaid is a personal favorite.

It's Craig Brewer, but it also looks like poop. Guess that equals a neutral.

Grrrr... so angry...

Oh no wait, since I'm 30 and this is not aimed at me, I guess I don't care. (I'm looking at you, everyone over the age of 12 that bagged on Pixar for making a sequel to Cars)

WTF

This looks like exactly the same movie. He even wears damn near the same clothes. What the hell is the point of remaking something if you change nothing?

Hmm

Will anyone Step Up 4 Real? I hope they bring it on! Oh wait... the premise to this is just horrible and the dancing looks absurd. Blame dancing for a car wreck, not the actual underage drinking itself but the act of dancing!

I'm not going to watch the trailer. AT ALL. Why do you want to remake this. If you want crowds to see it put out a new version of the DVD with some new shit. Or something don't remake it with some fuckin guy I never heard of before. LAME>

There's a video on YouTube of a guy showcasing a black widow spider bite on his index finger that is all ready infinitely more beautiful, touching, heartwrenching, enjoyable and entertaining than this film could ever hope to be. Just saying.

So it's just like the original film, only with bad actors and shitty music. And this is what was so much better than an original idea?

F*cking dicks. I hope your movie explodes like that bus did.

What's with the accent?

Why does "Ren" go from no accent, to a fucking horrible accent right at the end? My Boston ears are fucking bleeding over here.

I'm kinda sorry Craig Brewer did this. Maybe he's pouring his heart and soul into it, but all people see is another dance movie, and a remake at that. Brewer made two of my favorite movie of the last decade, and I hope he's pulled off a miracle here. He has a way with musically-themed movies.

On the plus side, nice to hear some real southern accents that don't sound forced or overdone.

Ummm...no

I'm still trying to figure out how, according to the trailer, they went from, the's 80's version where is about a town that's banished dancing, because it's a church going town, and they think it's sinful and disgusting....to a movie about a town that banishes under age dancing, if that's even a real term, because some kid got killed in a car wreck on the way home. That doesn't even make sense. That's like banning theatres, cause somebody got killed in a car wreck on their way home from

I really wanted to hate this trailer and I wanted it to inspire me to write some really witty comment about how horrible this movie will be, but that wasn't what happened. This looks decent for what it is, and I didnít hate it, but the thing that struck me about it was how unnecessary the whole thing seems. Did Footloose really need to be remade with hip hop music and butt grinding? I can see remaking a movie where improvements can be made, or some new element can be added, but this looks

Did Footloose really need to be remade with hip hop music and butt grinding? I can see remaking a movie where improvements can be made, or some new element can be added, but this looks like a frame for frame remake of the original. Why not simply rerelease the original? Iíd go see that. Is Hollywood so bereft of new ideas that we need to keep retelling the same stories over and over? Whatís next, Grease with an all rap soundtrack?

I really don't like this idea, but I'm willing to give it a chance as long as they don't make it modern day! One of the great things about the original was the 80's soundtrack!
