Just got a link to the new Footloose trailer, which looks…like Step Up in Utah. Seriously, who scrubbed the grit out of the classic ‘80s story? Why are these shiny people grinding? Don’t they know they’re supposed to be demanding the right to rock? Fighting for the right to get sweaty and do pelvic thrusts does not make for a compelling story. But I’ll let you decide for yourself. First up is the trailer of the remake, due out October 14, and next is the 1984 trailer, the Kevin Bacon-athon. Three Dollar Bill Cinema will hold an outdoor screening of the original Footloose on Friday night at Cal Anderson Park, so we can rally for the right to cut loose.
