Kick off your Sunday shoes, the new Footloose trailer is here

Aug. 12, 2011by:

I've heard from some people who've seen the film and they've told me that FOOTLOOSE is actually not that bad. I happen to think it looks mostly terrible. But the new trailer for the film is online and while I'm not exactly sure it changes my opinion on the film wholesale, I will say it's an impeccably cut piece of marketing.

I could give two craps about this FOOTLOOSE movie but that this trailer had me convinced at the end I might actually want to see it, is a testament to its genius. It tells the story without going through the familiar beats most trailers fall victim to. But a sharply edited trailer does not a good movie make. Is there enough between the swagger of a sweaty girl's hips and the coifed 'do of the Kevin Bacon stand-in to make you want to see this?

Here I am reading an article about the trailer for a Footloose remake and it's said to be "genius", I was convinced that it was written by Niki but it's turns out to be another female JoBlo employee:

No.....not interested at all. Will never ever see this film. Especially since some scenes seem to be transfered right out of the original, move for move. I'll stick with the original, which at the time came out when I was 14 and I still remember people dancing in the aisles.....so much fun. They'll never capture that. A film of it's time.

strange

There are some films that seem a strange choice to remake and this is one of them,it doesnt look bad but I just find it a bit odd for some reason and actually think the 80s one is still one that kids of today would seek out because its songs stand the test of time so how can you really do anything with this.

What the hell did I just watch? I don't remember any explosions in Footloose...seems a little too chaotic, but whatever I'm sure teens will eat this shit up.

my inner child is slowly dying with all these 80s remakes & i can't believe the guy who did Hustle & Flow & very underrated Black Snake Moan directed this, talk about the definition of a sellout

"There's a time to be daring ...". Then there's a time that I don't give a crap about this movie. This looks like another Step Up or You Got Served movies. It's Not Footloose and that's it.

Kevin Bacon

when i heard they were remaking the movie, the first thing i thought was that Kevin Bacon would play the preacher. Nothing against Dennis Quaid but Kevin Bacon was the only person who couldve saved this movie

I'm only going to see this if Kevin Bacon makes a cameo in which he has a sword full of killer bees taking out everyone in the cast.

Thank the Lord they used the vintage Beetle, and not a new one!

Well color me surprised that the trailer does make this look good. I hope they used the classic song Everybody Cut! I guess we will see if this turns out good.

if your gonna do a remake...

Then do a remake using the music from the Broadway show. Thats the only way it would stand any appeal to todays audience. If you make a film of the musical, it at least adds something new instead of just "a younger cast". Its like remaking Hairspray or Phantom of the Opera with out the music. Who cares. Then youll have a built in audience with theater nerd and GLEEKS. The only people who are gonna see this movie are mtv girls which, lets face it, are the dumbest film audience

Agreed. This will be mostly terrible with it's weird direct-remake style, crappy acting and well, it's freaking Footloose! But that was a smarter trailer for selling it to the masses.

Kick off my Sunday Shoes?

More like dunk my head in a bucket of water then dive head first into a power transformer. That sounds far more appealing than suffering this shit.
Then again I couldn't stand the original either so not much is lost.
