Watch: First Full Trailer for 'Burlesque' with Christina Aguilera
Get it while it's hot! We were tipped off on Twitter tonight with a link to a site called Vlicious featuring the first full, official trailer (or maybe no-so-official?) for Steven Antin's Burlesque, the Christina Aguilera and Cher musical about, you guessed it, a burlesque club (but only a PG-13 one). This looks pretty wild, like Moulin Rouge crossed with Chicago, if I have to make some other musical references. I'm not really into the Cher/Aguilera chemistry (or lack of), but this may be exactly what fans of those two have wanted to see. It's a bit low quality (it's now out in full high def) but it's still worth watching as our first real look at Burlesque.

Burlesque is a contemporary musical where Aguilera plays an ambitious smalltown girl with a big voice who finds love, family and success in a Los Angeles neo-burlesque club. It was pitched as "Moulin Rouge meets Cabaret", and will use established songs that will be updated and worked into dance numbers. Cher, in her first movie musical ever, plays the owner of the financially strapped Sunset Strip nightclub. This is directed by Steven Antin, making his feature debut after acting on shows like "NYPD Blue" and producing "Pussycat Dolls" shows for The CW. Sony is bringing Burlesque to theaters Thanksgiving week, on November 24th.
