Film trailer: 'Footloose' remake
Tuesday 16 August 2011
The newest trailer for the remake of the 1984 dance film
Footloose was released August 15.
The footage shows a series of snipits from the film depicting a city kid who must adjust when he arrives in a small conservative US town that outlaws rock'n'roll and dancing. He ends up leading the teens in a rebellion against repression.
Kenny Wormald ( Clerks II) stars as the new kid in town - the role played by Kevin Bacon in the 1984 film - while Julianne Hough ( Burlesque) and Dennis Quaid ( G.I. Joe: the Rise of Cobra) star as father and daughter.
Based on the original film, a few changes and some contemporary style have been added to update the story.
Footloose opens in North America and the UK on October 14, followed by Germany, Hong Kong, Singapore and Sweden through October, Brazil in November, and France in December.
