'Burlesque': International trailer gets it right

If the first Burlesque trailer left you on the fence, you’ll definitely want to watch the international trailer below. It’s a better cut with a more relaxed-looking Christina Aguilera, more dancing, more romance (with proof that Cam Gigandet will run the full gamut: shirtless, shirts without sleeves, shirts with sleeves), more Stanley Tucci (imagine if he’d been in Showgirls), more Kristen Bell (with Julianne Hough), and more Cher. (Not only do we get a tease of her onstage, but we also get to watch her deliver the line “If you fall off the stage, leg extended, boobs up.”) Now, I’m officially in. And still curious about when we’ll see a great Alan Cumming moment in a preview. You?

    I can’t wait to see this movie!
    I am so excited!

  • hobokendave

    Drag queens are already lip syncing the musical numbers!

  • graeme

    Definitely a better trailer, but Aguilera still looks weak.

    • Elysia

      I disagree…they give away way too much!

  • Drew

    This actually looks really fun!

  • Templar

    What do you mean Cher’s comeback? When was she ever not A List and a hit? Comeback from where? She has always worked as much as she cared to, and has always been in top form.

      “Whoooooooooa!”-Cher Noise

    I probably wouldn’t watch it if it weren’t for the great cast, now I cant wait!

  • Miss Dragon

    Already got the girly night planned!

    Templar, Cher needs a comeback in the film world. Sorry, people. this film is not going to do it. The movie is getting awful buzz.

    • Drew

      It has not been getting awful buzz. It hasn’t even been screened for critics yet. The only reason anyone would be hating on it this early is because its popular right now to be on the anti-Christina bandwagon.

      • jd

        Awful buzz? From who? People who hate Christina Aguilera? All the test screenings have been overwhelmingly positive, so it’s going to be humorous when the film comes out and all the people who are trying to call it Glitter or Showgirls are made to look like idiots. Can’t wait for that moment and I can’t wait for this movie.

      “Awful Buzz”? If you get your Christina Aguilera news from bitter and pressed Lady GaGa fans, then yes. But if you read real publications and reviews, the buzz is FAR from “Awful”.

      Try again.

    I wish the music were better.

    I got goosebumps when Xtina started singing…but I think she looks weird. Her hair looked terrible or something, the bangs weren’t workin for her.

  • rich

    I’ve heard from people that saw this movie intest screenings that its a lot of fun and very entertaining and that Christina can act…and CHER…now we just need a new Cher song to go with it.

  • sarah d

    I dont want to be a hater, but isnt Xtina a little old for the ingenue role? Also, shouldnt this be a VH1 made for TV movie?

    • d

      Christina is only 29 and she’s playing someone in her mid 20’s. It’s not like she’s playing someone who is a sophomore in high school like the cast of glee who are mostly in their mid to late 20’s. Besides isn’t that why it’s called acting?

  • msveronica

    a cher/xtina duet cant be any worse than the madonna/britney one

  • Rasha

    Can’t freakin’ wait. Even if the movie sucks, it’ll be awesome! :)

  • GeeMoney

    Here’s hoping that the movie doesn’t suck like Aguilera’s last album.
