New Burlesque trailer online
There's a new trailer online for Burlesque, well I thought it was new until I watched the first half, and then the second half came and I started to rethink that, and in the final third there's definitely a lot of new footage outside of the club.
The new footage does put a little bit of a different slant on things, previously, once we'd seen the character arrive at the club, we were there all the time. Not now.
The new trailer for Burlesque carries little that looks new until well into it, for instance I haven't heard this quote from Cher before:
”If you fall off the stage, leg extended, boobs up”
...and that is a cracker. Then there's footage of the relationship between the new singer/dancer and the barman, footage of them out of the club and quite a bit of it, now that definitely is new.
Great names in that cast, Stanley Tucci, Cher, Alan Cumming, Peter Gallagher as well as Eric Dane, Kristen Bell and Cam Gigandet, I wonder if the film is going to live up to how good the trailers are looking?
Here's the blurb for the film again:
The Burlesque Lounge has its best days behind it. Tess, a retired dancer and owner of the venue, struggles to keep the aging theater alive, facing all kinds of financial and artistic challenges. With the Lounge's troupe members becoming increasingly distracted by personal problems and a threat coming from a wealthy businessman's quest to buy the spot from Tess, the good fortune seems to have abandoned the club altogether.
Meanwhile, the life of Ali, a small-town girl from Iowa, is about to change dramatically. Hired by Tess as a waitress at the Lounge, Ali escapes a hollow past and quickly falls in love with the art of burlesque. Backed by newfound friends amongst the theater's crew, she manages to fulfill her dreams of being on stage herself. Things take a dramatic turn though when Ali's big voice makes her become the main attraction of the revue.
