New Footloose trailer
The remake is gathering pace and it's trying to bring us with it as a new trailer for Footloose, the remake, arrives online. It's not really arrived to a lot of thunderous excitement, but it has arrived and to be honest it's not looking too bad.
The strongest thing about it is the fact that they are pulling us back to the original with the soundtrack hinting at where it's going to go, towards the Footloose theme undoubtedly a new version by a young artist but the Footloose theme none the less.
The trailer for Footloose, the remake I feel I have to keep saying, kicks off with the beat for the tune we all know from the beginning. There's a little of a modern sound to it, but for most of the trailer it's just percussion, but when the final line is delivered and just before the closing credits, boom, here comes the recognisable cue for the song.
It's not just that, there's warehouse dance scene too which looks like it could be very similar to the original, but I have to admit the trailer has been put together really well and does deliver on the dramatic tension being built up between the religious leader character, played by Dennis Quaid, and the newcomer to the school, played by Kenny Wormald, not just around the dancing but also around his daughter played by Julianne Hough.
Craig Brewer has a strong trailer, but has he a strong film? Here's the Footloose blurb followed by the new trailer.
Ren MacCormack 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.
You can also see the trailer over on Yahoo Movies.
Oh, and doesn't that poster look familiar too? Let's hear it for the boys.
