Just in time for Comic-Con, Fox has released a teaser trailer for The Rocky Horror Picture Show remake starring Laverne Cox as Dr. Frank-N-Furter, Adam Lambert as Eddie, Victoria Justice as Janet, Ryan McCartan as Brad, Christina Millian as Magenta and the always lovely Reeve Carney in the role of Riff-Raff.
The latest promo gives fans never-before-seen footage with Cox and the ensemble singing and dancing to “Time Warp” – it even includes the infamous audience callback. For those nostalgic of the 1970’s cult classic, Tim Curry, who was the original Frank-N-Furter in the film, makes an appearance in this updated version as The Criminologist.
The two-hour Fox special, directed by Kenny Ortega, will air in October.
Watch it below, and tell me what you think in the Facebook comments. My two cents? Laverne looks great (and really nails that “Oh Rocky!” line), and I could watch Ryan McCartan and Reeve Carney ALL DAY. Soooooo, I will definitely be watching…
More “Rocky Horror” news and footage is expected to be revealed during the San Diego Comic Con festivities.
