Footloose Trailer On Its Feet
'This is our time...'

Some images from the new remake of ‘80s cult dancing favourite Footloose shuffled down the line last month, but now comes not only the first poster for the movie, but a trailer to boot, which you can watch below.

 

Footloose follows the basic structure of the 1984 original, albeit transplanted to the South instead of the Midwest American setting. Kenny Wormald is Ren McCormack, who arrives to stay with family in the small town of Bomont. But he soon runs afoul of the local reverend (Dennis Quaid) who, along with the town government, has pushed through measures to ban public dancing in the aftermath of a tragic accident that killed a carload of high school students.

Still, Ren decides to challenge the ruling and finds solid support from Ariel Moore (Julianne Hough), who just so happens to be the reverend’s rebellious, dance-crazy daughter. Along with new friends such as Willard Hewitt (Miles Teller), Ren sets out to change some minds...

The trailer’s pretty much exactly what you’d expect – lots of dancing, a basic primer on the story and Wormald and Hough giving it their best smouldering looks. Oh, and Wormald trying to look rebellious while driving a beaten-up yellow VW Beatle. As you do. Talking of the car, it’s the star of the poster below.

With Hustle & Flow’s Craig Brewer behind the camera, Footloose will line dance into cinemas on October 14.

I don't get it...
What decade is this supposed to be set in?? What town in the America today would ban dancing because of one accident?? Weird... More

Uh-oh... I'm ashamed to admit that I quite liked this one, I thought it looked good. But then I haven't seen the 1984 film... (I whispered that, so I hope no-one heard me...) More

why, why why, why, why!!!!!
the scenes are the same, the dialogue is the same, the music is worse!!! Please don't tell me Mr. Bacon makes a surprise cameo. I'd have to top myself. Back to my header - Why? , It's case of lets get some more money for old rope. And this just looks like one of those films where you know it'll be wiped of the their C.V.'s. They probably say something like "it's a homage to ..." what ever - defiantly won't be getting my time to view! even my kids can't understand why! More

AAaaaaarrrrrrrRRRHHH
This looks like the worlds shitest remake ever! from Costume, Set Design, Script and Story in every god damm scene from start to finish. The most un-imaginitive COPY CAT remake of all time. What's worse the soundtrack will be all Bump N Grind Crrraaaapp!. I don't mind admitting that 'Footloose' with Kevin Bacon is a favourite of mine from when I was a kid and I think everyone involved in 'Footloose' 2011 should all drive over the state line, get themselves loaded and drive off a bridge.

Did anyone laugh....
when they read the line "But he soon runs afoul of the local reverend (Dennis Quaid) who, along with the town government, has pushed through measures to ban public dancing in the aftermath of a tragic accident that killed a carload of high school students." Some tit gets drunk and ploughs his car into a truck and the logical solution is ban the body poppin, grinding, and the rest of Channing Tatum's moves, in a town where everyone's a proffesional dancer! haha! I know, I know, More

Totally agree umer_ejaz, the whole thing looks identical to the original, which was a damn good movie in my eyes! More

Has anyone noticed that the entire trailer looks like a direct remake of the 1984 film? Scene by scene it just looks all the same. why do a remake if your going to copy every scene from the bloody original? Totally pointless in even making this movie More
