The new “Rocky Horror Picture Show” trailer already has us doing the Time Warp

Halloween this year is already shaping up to be the best halloween ever! The reason for that? Because Fox’s remake of the iconic 1975 movie musical, The Rocky Horror Picture, is going to air!

While we’d normally be a bit unsure of remakes, the new Rocky Horror looks like it’s going to be a big budget spectacle and have all the personality of the original.


The story of Rocky Horror is a tale as old as time. Basically, recently married couple, Brad and Janet (played by Ryan McCartan and Victoria Justice in the remake, and Barry Bostwick and Susan Sarandon in the original), happen upon a mansion in the middle of a thunderstorm where they’re greeted by the sexually ambiguous Dr Frank-N-Furter, a mad scientist (played by the brilliant Laverne Cox in the remake and Tim Curry in the original). There, Dr Frank-N-Furter introduces Brad and Janet to a world of vices, hijinks, crazy science, and, well, cloning. There are musical numbers galore, amazing costumes, and in the original Meat Loaf rides around on a motorcycle.

Anyway, at this year’s Comic-Con in San Diego, Fox decided to release a new teaser for the remake and it looks brilliant.

*Does the “Time Warp” for the rest of the day.*

Just look at Laverne Cox as Dr Frank-N-Furter!


The cast of the new Rocky Horror looks brilliant, too, with the likes of Adam Lambert, Christina Milian, and even Tim Curry making an appearance.

Seriously, October seems soooo far away! I guess it gives us enough time to perfect our costume…
