Fame Trailer

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.

    I have no interest in this movie. Even if it gets great reviews and turns out to be spectacular, I still don't want to see it.

  • notalent
    @11 9 (the number) is not a musical, it's an animated film by Shane Acker, Timur Bekmambetov and Tim Burton. Nine (spelled out) is the musical with Daniel Day-Lewis.

    That actually didn't look as bad as I thought it would be, which was a HSM clone. It does look pretty interesting.

    It's not a chick flick! It's an epic musical. This is going to be great and the cast looks like they did an amazing job. It's nice to see musicals come up to this generation.
