Cut Loose! The New Footloose Poster Debuts


It’s time to cut loose like it’s 1984 all over again! By now we’re all aware about the “Footloose” remake, the original made famous by a young Kevin Bacon so hopefully this remake doesn’t totally suck.

Yahoo! Movies has debuted the shiny, fun, new poster for Craig Brewer’s “Footloose” remake where we see Julianne Hough and Kenny Wormald’s characters cuttin’ loose on the dance floor.

Starring Kenny Wormald, Julianne Hough, Dennis Quaid, Ziah Colon, Ray McKinnon, Miles Teller, Ser’Darius William Blain, Patrick John Flueger and Andie MacDowell, here’s the film’s synopsis:

Ren MacCormack (played by newcomer Kenny Wormald) is transplanted from Boston to the small southern town of Bomont where he experiences a heavy dose of culture shock. A few years prior, the community was rocked by a tragic accident that killed five teenagers after a night out and Bomont’s local councilmen and the beloved Reverend Shaw Moore (Dennis Quaid) responded by implementing ordinances that prohibit loud music and dancing. Not one to bow to the status quo, Ren challenges the ban, revitalizing the town and falling in love with the minister’s troubled daughter Ariel (Julianne Hough) in the process.

Get ready to cut loose when the film hits theaters October 14, 2011.

    John Lithgow and Kevin Bacon need to make cameos. I just footloose the other day on HBO. The dance movies they did made me blush with embarrassment. I had to cover my eyes at Chris Penn doing his dancing scenes.

      The sequence with Kevin Bacon teaching Chris Penn how to dance set to Deniece Williams’ 80’s pop hit “Let’s hear it for the boy” is one of the few things in life that can gove me complete and unadulterated joy! EVERYBODY CUT FOOTLOOSE!!!

        It’s kind of like looking at your high school picture. “Did I really look like that?!?” When I saw them dance in footloose, it was “OMG, did they really just do that move?!?!?” And then it hit me, I think I might have done that move myself!
