The first trailer for the new Footloose remake came out recently. All I have to say is, uh...no. I'm not sure how to feel about it because I LOVE the original.  I loved all the actors, Kevin Bacon, Lori Singer , John Lithgow, Diane Wiest, Chris Penn, and Sarah Jessica Parker.  I want this movie to be good, but I don't know if it will or not.  Maybe it will be to this generation what the original was to us, but I'll let you be your own judge.

 

I understand that this is a remake of the original, but it seems like they are making a carbon copy of the original, but with new actors set in today's times. I'm not sure how I feel about this? To give it a fair shot I'll have to watch it to see, but after seeing this trailer I don't know if I want to see the remake.

Look for the new Footloose in theaters October 14th.

Here's the trailer to the original movie.  Let us know your thoughts on the new vs. the old.
