We’re quickly approaching the release of Fox’s remake of the iconic musical movie Rocky Horror Picture Show, and the network is ramping up fan excitement with a new look at Orange is the New Black actress Laverne Cox as Dr. Frank-N-Furter.
The sweet transvestite from transexual Transylvania’s is a fresh take on the aesthetic made famous by Tim Curry in 1975. She’s traded in the black curls for a sleek red look, but Frank-N-Furter’s ravishing ruby lips are the same no matter the decade. Some things never go out of style.
Check out the short new teaser trailer for The Rocky Horror Picture Show below:
Let there be lips, indeed!
Also of The Rocky Horror Picture Show are Victoria Justice as Janet, Ryan McCartan as Brad, Reeve Carney as Riff Raff, Christina Milian as Magenta, Annaleigh Ashford as Columbia, Adam Lambert as Eddie, Staz Nair as Rocky and Tim Curry as The Narrator.
The photos and teasers released for the show thus far have been met with mostly mixed reviews. As a fan, I’ll probably be tuning in good or bad what just to see what it looks like. But now we want to know what you guys think!
