Will this be an Oscar contender or a film that simply starred Christina Aguilera and Cher? The first trailer for Burlesque has arrived allowing us to finally weigh in and in my very early Oscar predictions I just posted I included Stanley Tucci and Cher as contenders in the supporting categories sight unseen. Have a look at the trailer and tell me if I’m crazy or if you see real potential here.
The film centers on Ali Rose (Aguilera), a small-town girl who discovers a burlesque club in LA. Cher plays Tess, owner of The Burlesque Lounge where Tucci plays a gay stage manager who once had a fling with Tess. The film also stars Kristen Bell, Alan Cumming and Eric Dane.
Burlesque hits theaters on November 24. You can check out an earlier write up of mine on the film here. The trailer is directly below.
