Footloose remake trailer

Footloose.jpgHere's the trailer for the new version of Footloose that I'm still struggling, the reason? Well I still don't get why there's a ban on dancing, even if someone does die in a car crash because of it. I guess well they did die after a dance party, so that means banning dancing not cars or drinking or...actually I am starting to understand it a little more, we're forever banning the wrong things these days.

As for the film? Well really it's another dance film with some iconic moments from the original Footloose film. Does it work though?

There's not that much in the Footloose trailer to really tell if it works or not. There's enough to remember what the original was and to connect with it, and there's enough to show that there's new styles of dancing, sexy ladies, faces we'll recognise and some big explosions to boot, but will the remake of Footloose sell to audiences?

Perhaps those that like the other dance films we've seen will like this trailer, but I'm not sure it's Footloose any more.

Here's a blurb for the new film, which does sound much like the original.

"Writer/Director Craig Brewer ("Hustle & Flow," "Black Snake Moan") delivers a new take of the beloved 1984 classic film, "Footloose." 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 to the trailer, will it become what the well watched original did?
