The official trailer for Fox’s The Rocky Horror Picture Show dropped at Comic-Con 2016.
The Rocky Horror Picture Show, a brand-new reimagining of the cult-classic midnight movie 40 years in the making, is set to air October 2016. Sweethearts Janet (Victoria Justice, Victorious) and Brad (Ryan McCartan, Liv & Maddie, Heathers the Musical) stumble upon flirtatious mad scientist Dr Frank-N-Furter’s (Emmy Award-nominated actress Laverne Cox, Orange is the New Black) bizarre abode during his annual Transylvanian science convention. The two-hour event also features Emmy Award nominee Tim Curry, the original Frank-N-Furter.
The two-hour event commemorating the 40th anniversary of the original movie musical will air in October.
It’s directed and choreographed by High School Musical‘s Kenny Ortega, which is better than it sounds, because his many other credits include working with Michael Jackson on what was intended as his comeback, the elements of which are seen in the movie This Is It.
WHY reboots? Why never a new story? Schmucks, all of them.
This looks better than the initial publicity stuff led me to thing, but . . . yeah, still not something I could be enthusiastic about.
Still not that crazy about Ms Cox as Frank but the concept for this one is interesting.
A female as Frank N. Furter is just not as transgressive and will not mess up nearly as many little suburban white boys’ minds. On the other hand, maybe it will mess up more suburban white girls’ minds?
Ghod! It’s like Ghostbusters all over again.
Read that Tim Curry had a stroke a year or two back. Hope he’s in good form.
Feels more like Blues Brothers 2000.
I cannot resist… “it fills a much-needed gap”.
Please forgive me.
