The trailer for Christina Aguilera and Cher’s Burlesque has premiered! Burlesque isn’t due out until November, but you can get a sneak peek now. Critics are making snickering references to Showgirls and Glitter, but we have high hopes.
In the Burlesque trailer, after Christina Aguilera’s Ali Rose buys a one way ticket to Los Angeles, she finds herself hocking cocktails in the world of Burlesque. Like any sweet small town girl, the gorgeous waitress just wants to get on stage and shake her tail feather.
Meanwhile, former burlesque queen Tess, played by Cher, is looking to save her sexy club. For that, she needs to find the next big thing. She can’t imagine she’ll find it in sweet Ali, but it turns out Ali’s got pipes and Tess soon finds herself a mentor to a star in the making.
Word on the street is that Cher shines in Burlesque and the musical is destined to be her comeback vehicle.
True, the 64-year-old has a big Las Vegas show running, but she hasn’t graced the big screen in over a decade, aside from her campy cameo in Stuck on You. This from the diva who not only won an Oscar for her role in Moonstruck, but blew audiences away in Mask and Silkwood!
As for Christina Aguilera, fans already know she can belt out the tunes and she’s already proven herself on the burlesque stage, but this is her chance to prove herself on the big screen.
Kristen Bell, Stanley Tucci, Eric Dane, Cam Gigandet and Dancing With the Stars’ Julianne Hough also star in Burlesque, which is scheduled to hit theaters on November 24, just in time for Thanksgiving.
