The first trailer and theatrical poster for Footloose have been released and they remind us of the good old days.
The new Footloose has the same premise as the original.
You’ve got Ren McCormack (Kenny Wormald), who blows into a small town where dancing is strictly prohibited.
He falls for a local girl named Ariel (Julianne Hough) and butts heads with the town’s authority figures including its reverend (Dennis Quaid) aka Ariel’s dad!
And rounding out the group, we have Miles Teller, who plays the finger-snapping hillbilly Willard.
Judging from the trailer and the poster, the remake definitely stays in line with the first film’s aesthetic.
Just check out Ren’s tuxedo towards the end of the video. Does it look familiar to you?
One of the most memorable sequences from the original Footloose consists of Ren dancing like a madman in an abandoned warehouse. That scene also appears in the new movie and Wormald performs the heck out of it!
We can’t wait to see what other similarities pop up on screen. Footloose opens in theaters everywhere on October 14.
