Showgirls 2 gets a trailer and a poster. No, this is not a joke

09.06.2013

Sometimes I get the privilege of working at JoBlo.com to share with the world something special, something timeless, something epic. Other times, I get to show you the trailer for SHOWGIRLS 2: PENNY'S FROM HEAVEN.

SHOWGIRLS is Paul Verhoeven's unintentional comedy about the rise and fall of a Las Vegas showgirl barely played by Elizabeth Berkeley. Gina Gershon, Kyle MacLachlan, Robert Davi, and Rena Riffel co-star and trudge through the awful Joe Eszterhas story that has become something of a punchline to movie fans around the world. SHOWGIRLS has become a stage musical and a midnight movie cult classic but never did I think it would warrant a sequel.

Actress Riffel returns along with some of her SHOWGIRLS costars for SHOWGIRLS 2: PENNY'S FROM HEAVEN. No, that apostrophe is not a typo. Riffel serves as director of the sequel and proves that it is possible to make a movie worse than SHOWGIRLS. Yeah, this looks that bad.

Las Vegas stripper, Penny Slot (Riffel), sets out on an adventure to become the star dancer on a popular television show. With stars in her eyes, she tries to find the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow - but instead finds drama, danger and snuff movies in a town much more wicked than Sin City. Penny's longtime fiance/boyfriend (Plummer) warns her that she needs formal technique training if she wants to be taken seriously as a real dancer, so Penny Slot sets out to learn ballet - but, she must pay the price to make it to the top. There are sacrifices to be made at every imaginable level, and it all comes down to... How bad do you want it?

I do not want it. At all. In fact, I am somewhat surprised that this even got made. This looks bad, people. As in THE ROOM level of badness. Even Elizabeth Berkeley had enough sense to stay away from this one. Wow. And before you ask, no this is not getting a theatrical release. If you really want to see SHOWGIRLS 2: PENNY'S FROM HEAVEN you will be able to check it out on DVD or VOD beginning September 17th.

I was actually anticipating a Vivid Entertainment logo at the end of it.

That's offensive - even Vivid makes better films than that.

This would be much better if they added lots of CG lens flare.

Fucker, fuck off!

Shot on a 5D? Check! Sound filled with echo? Check! LiveType text effects? Check! Why yes, I do believe this is a freshman college production circa 2008!

Wow... Can't unsee that one.

My "favorite part" of this trailer is the fact that she is an "Award Winning Writer/Director." I looked it up, and the only awards I could find related to her in some way were:
Clio & Telly Award for “Fantastic Sam's” commercial
Best Video in 2008 in the UK at the Kerring Awards for the video “Feathers”

SOOOOOOO the acting was porn-esque. Is this supposed to be bad for fun or are they playing it straight? It seemed like a serious film. Weird.

I stopped watching around the 2 minute mark

That was porno-level acting and directing. If anyone still has a career after doing this flick, I suspect they'll be dumping it from their resumes, ASAP.

I swear, I had to double check my calendar...

I thought this was some sort of April Fool's Joke. But apparently it is not.

You know how filmmaker's are all saying that with today's technology you should "just go out and do it...go and make a movie" Put your voice on the screen. Some times you get a good art house flick made by a talented filmmaker, and sometimes you get this. Good advice should not be followed universally.

There's no way this can be an official film/sequel. The production value looks like a preschool project.
@The Arrow - more like Video-8, Mini DV is giving it too much credit lol.

Movie has been online for months...

And let me tell you it is one of the WORST pieces of trash I've ever seen. The original was so bad it was good and quite hilarious and it's never boring. It's just an enjoyable mess.

This "sequel" is boring, tepid, badly written, BADLY DIRECTED (it seriously looks like it was shot in someone's backyard), and it is just awful. One of the rare movies I'd honestly give a 0/10 to!

Is this actually legit?
Why would anyone think that this could have ended well.
Not even good enough for Elizabeth Berkley o make a return, You know it's bad.

AAAAHHHHHHHH!

I had to pour salt in my eyes after about 30 seconds. Luckily I was able to stop the playback before brain damage set in.

They brought Glenn Plummer back from the original to tie the movies together.
