Tim Curry teaches the Time Warp in new trailer for Fox's Rocky Horror remake

The Rocky Horror Picture Show Tim Curry Laverne Cox

Fox's remake of THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW has just received its longest teaser yet in anticipation for their Comic-Con appearance. Massive quantities of new footage are hemorrhaged from the promo, presented as an audience participation screening. It's unclear whether a fake audience making callbacks will be included in the actual presentation. That would be incredibly bizarre, so I kind of hope it does. I'll take anything different over a flat retread.

The biggest draw for this promo is a cameo appearance by original Frank-N-Furter Tim Curry as the Criminologist, teaching us to do the Time Warp. It's been many years since his ROCKY HORROR role, and it's fun to see him at least interacting with it again.

I can feel you shivering with antici... pation, so I'll cut to the chase. Check out the teaser below!

A reimagining of the original movie, the two-hour event follows sweethearts JANET (Victoria Justice, “Victorious”) and BRAD (Ryan McCartan, “Liv & Maddie,” “Heathers the Musical”), who stumble upon DR. FRANK-N-FURTER’s (Emmy Award-nominated actress Laverne Cox, “Orange is the New Black”) bizarre abode. Frank-N-Furter, a sexually ambiguous, flirtatious mad-scientist, is holding an annual Transylvanian science convention to showcase the birth of ROCKY HORROR – a muscle-bound specimen created solely to fulfill Frank’s desires.

Actor and singer Staz Nair (“Game of Thrones”) will star in the role of Rocky. Also featured in the event are AMERICAN IDOL alum Adam Lambert as EDDIE, Reeve Carney (“Penny Dreadful,” “Spider-Man Turn Off the Dark”) as RIFF RAFF, Tony Award winner Annaleigh Ashford (“Sylvia,” “You Can’t Take It With You,” “Masters of Sex”) as COLUMBIA, Christina Milian (“Grandfathered”) as MAGENTA, Ivy Levan as USHERETTE, Tony Award winner Ben Vereen (“Pippin”) as DR. EVERETT SCOTT and Emmy Award nominee Tim Curry, the original Frank-N-Furter, as the show’s CRIMINOLOGIST NARRATOR. Celebrating 40 years of theatrical distribution – longer than any other film in history – “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” is one of the most popular films of all time, and still plays in movie theaters around the world.

ROCKY HORROR will come to life this October on Fox.
