Well, how ’bout that? The full trailer for FOX’s The Rocky Horror Picture Show remake has finally landed. It’s full of hair, makeup and mayhem, and it’s actually got us pretty excited. Original Dr Frank-N-Furter actor Tim Curry also has a quick cameo. It’s astounding, but it’s fleeting.
FOX’s latest TV movie musical won’t be broadcast live like its production of Grease earlier this year, but it looks as though it will be relying just as heavily on the instant fan reaction factor…
