trailer break: ‘Fame’

Take a break from work: watch a trailer…


I’m not sure Fame was demanding a remake — the original 1980 film is still perfectly relevant, isn’t it? — but nobody asks me about these things. I blame High School Musical. Which is, of course, probably the fault of the first Fame.

But hey, it’s the feel-good movie of senior year! Sign my yearbook…?

Fame opens in the U.S. and the U.K. on September 25.

  • Interesting to compare this with the 1980 trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=51g-cS7nYUY

    I blame High School Musical. Which is, of course, probably the fault of the first Fame.

    Except that High School Musical didn’t have nudity, or homelessness, or gay kids coming out, or junkies attacking kid sisters, or students contemplating abortion or suicide or struggling with illiteracy or smuggling knives into school or being recruited by porn directors. (I just rewatched the first Fame recently and was reminded of how gritty and unflinching it was, compared to all its squeaky-clean descendants. The only thing I can think of that might hold a candle to it would be the film adaptation of Spring Awakening, whenever they get around to making it.)

    Yup.

    And, btw, this was another totally pointless remake.
