Energetic New Trailer for MGM's Fame Remake
MGM has debuted the new theatrical trailer for Fame, the remake of the 1980 musical of the same name. This marks the directing debut of former "Dancelife" and "The Search for the Next Pussycat Doll" director Kevin Tancharoen. I think MGM is trying to inspire a new generation of youngsters with Fame, and I expect they'll get a whole lot of people interested with this. Even if you don't like musicals, you've got to admit, this is a very well put together trailer. It really builds the excitement and I'll admit that I want to see this. I hate to say it, but I'm probably more excited for Fame than I am for Rob Marshall's Nine, in terms of musicals.
