Brand New Mamma Mia! Trailer Debuts
Screw "Dancing with the Stars", the brand new Mamma Mia! trailer has already launched online! You may be asking why we feature trailers like this? Well, because occasionally film geeks like us do like to enjoy a good musical. In one word I'd say this looks "fun" or maybe "upbeat". Plus, who doesn't love ABBA?! Okay, just kidding there (because I don't think anyone does). Anyway, if you're up for brightening your day with a little Greek sunshine or some cheerful dancing, then have at it. You might find yourself actually enjoying this trailer…
The funniest part is that this comes out the same day as The Dark Knight. I don't think anyone is going to even be thinking "hmm what will I see today", but oh well. At least the girls will be able to enjoy this while you're watching Batman take back Gotham City.
Watch the new trailer for Mamma Mia!:
Mamma Mia! is directed by Phyllida Lloyd (Gloriana on TV) and written for the screen by TV writer Catherine Johnson. The film is based on Broadway show that first opened in 1999. Mamma Mia! arrives in theaters this summer on July 18th. The poster for the film is featured below.

Alex, please do some homework. There are a billion ABBA fans out there, and we LOVE and ADORE ABBA. Try some research before assuming anything. Thanks for posting the trailer though. Hope you find your way to the magic of ABBA when you see the film. Graeme

is it weird if i agree with no.1 reason being he is right there are young and old people that love abba, to be honest dark knight could have stiff competition leaving iron man to rise.

I reluctantly saw this on Broadway and let me tell you I surprisingly LOVED it. I am seeing Batman Thurs. Midnight, but Friday I might have to make a trip back to the theaters to see this.

I hate musicals with a passion. But I had two free passes to see this show in London and I loved it. Not sure how it will translate on film. It seems a little awkward. Hope it works.

Graeme you're wrong. There's no such thing as Abba fans.

Dear Neil, ABBA is the third largest selling recording artist in history, after The Beatles and Elvis Presley. Their official website http://www.abbasite.com currently lists 142258 members. The official fan club has been running for over 25 years, and more people have seen Mamma Mia! than any other musical in history. Please consider attending ABBA Day in Holland next April and you will see evidence of ABBA fanaticism. ABBA rock; you just haven't realised it yet.

FYI = For Your Information. haha. anyway, this is a total chick flick to counter Dark Knight...but luckily, there's quite a bit of girls following TDK(or at least the virals).

I'm totally excited to see this one. More so than Dark Knight. I'll let you guys hang out there while I see something with substance.

I saw Mamma Mia, the theater production. Had lots of fun, though I enjoy theater a lot as well as movies. I'll see it, mostly because I like Meryl Streep and I dig on most musicals. Nice break from reality. Plus, I think most people have been caught singing "Dancing Queen" in the shower at least once. Really? Nobody? Okay, just me then.

just got back from mamma mia, and to say utterly disappointed would be an understatement... Julie walters is HORRIBLE, pierce brosnan is painful to look at and even worse when he sings. the story is fractured... everything either rushes too fast or seems to be headed nowhere... there are too many threads, the daughter who wants to find her father, then the bride who gets cold feat then a closet homosexual and several other which are quite simply pointless... i went in expecting fireworks and ended up with a damp squib! the only saving grace is Merryl Streep. the scene sparkles when she's in them. also Amanda seyfreid seems promising... but overall a major disappointment... and i still cant get the shrieking julie walters out of my head... she scared me !
