Christina Aguilera, Kristen Bell and Eric Dane in the first Burlesque trailer

Posted by: Brad Sturdivant

The first trailer for the highly anticipated BURLESQUE is here, featuring the much hyped screen debut of Christina Aguilera.  And although many of the stars in this film have a very passionate fan base, I have to point out something about this film; it looks almost exactly like SHOWGIRLS.  So much so, that I found myself snickering at it.  It has an eerily similar storyline of a small town girl heading to the big city to be a dancer, where she works in a club, then gets her big break an becomes famous in that city.  But that’s a generalized plot.  What makes it bad is that they duplicated a lot of the little things like having her mimic the dancers while in the audience and fall for the waiter/bartender guy.  The acting also looks awkward, like no one really knows what to say.

I don’t know, maybe I’m being too hard on it.  Check it out and decide for yourself.  The film stars Christina Aguilera, Kristen Bell, Stanley Tucci, Alan Cumming, Eric Dane, Julianne Hough and Cher.  Steven Antin is directing for a November 24th release date.  Watch the trailer here.
