Dust off those fishnet stockings, there’s a new Rocky Horror Picture Show on the way…
Can you believe it’s been over forty years since The Rocky Horror Picture Show first arrived in cinemas? The film / stage show has become a massive cult hit and still manages to sell-out both cinema screens and theatre halls. The film starred Susan Sarandon, Barry Bostwick, Richard O’Brien, Meatloaf and Tim Curry and followed a young girl and her boyfriend as they pay a call to the peculiar residence of Dr. Frank-n-Furter after breaking down. With its zany fashion and catchy tunes the film had seeped its way into popular culture and there’s barely a wedding reception out there that doesn’t play The Time Warp at least once.
Given the longevity of the film it’s a little surprising that anyone would want to touch it. But it seems that »

Let's do the time warp again and travel back to 1975 with the first trailer for Fox's upcoming remake of Rocky Horror Picture Show. The short clip gives a glimpse at Laverne Cox's take on Tim Curry's Dr. Frank-n-Furter.
The clip begins with Brad (Ryan McCartan) and Janet (Victoria Justice) being greeted by Riff Raff (Reeve Carney). The brief trailer gives more than enough of an introduction to Cox's faithful take on Curry's Frank-n-Furter, nailing the character's seductive, dramatic accent.
The trailer promises a Halloween premiere of the remake, »
Something fabulous this way comes on Halloween!
Fox released the first teaser trailer for their television movie remake of "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." It's only 30 seconds, but we get a good bit of Laverne Cox vamping it up as Frank-n-Furter. "Enchanté," she purrs at Victoria Justice's Janet and Ryan McCartan's Brad.
"It's not easy having a good time," Cox says, but it looks pretty easy for her. We also get glimpses at Reeve Carney as Riff Raff, Christina Milian as Magenta, Annaleigh Ashford as Columbia, and Adam Lambert as Eddie.
The original movie, of course, is a cult favorite with a massive, obsessed following. The star of the 1975 horror musical, Tim Curry, serves as narrator in the remake, which looks just as campy as the original, but perhaps a bit slicker.
The two-hour "Rocky Horror Picture Show" will air on Fox this Halloween.

It’s no secret that television – and in particular, Fox – is on a re-boot roll right now. With The X Files, Prison Break, Lethal Weapon, and The Exorcist all filling out the small screen in 2016, the announcement of The Rocky Horror Picture Show was met with more of a sense of inevitability and resignation, than shock. Now, although it is not due for broadcast until the fall, the studio has released the first teaser trailer, and it does not disappoint.
When a concept has a long-standing, devoted cult following, in the way that The Rocky Horror Picture Show does, any attempt to re-boot or re-imagine that concept is often met with derision and anger. In this case, however, the concept in question is almost the exception to the rule. Initially created as a stage production, before being adapted for film by its original authors Jim Sharman and Richard O’Brien »

Rocky Horror Picture Show is sacred ground. It is the longest running midnight movie in history, and it still plays every weekend all throughout the country. So a remake might not be taken so lightly by its legion of fans. Even if the movie is taking some bold steps in diversifying its cast. Everyone's favorite doctor from Transsexual, Transylvania is back. But ol' Frank-n-Furter sure looks a lot different than way back in 1975. This time out, the character is played by Orange is the New Black star Laverne Cox. And we have a first look courtesy of EW, with her standing next to iconic actor Ben Vereen as Dr. Scott. About taking over for Tim Curry, Cox says this.

Two episodes were provided prior to broadcast.
The grand, ghastly Guignol that is Showtime’s Penny Dreadful ended its thrilling second season by entering a new act, one that found its myriad characters scattered to the winds without any clear adversary or obstacle to reunite them.
Malcolm (Timothy Dalton) had departed to Africa, both to bury his slain friend Sembene and to find new purpose. Ethan (Josh Hartnett) was in chains, being extradited to America to stand trial for horrific crimes committed by his lupine alter ego. The Creature (Rory Kinnear) had struck out for the Arctic, in self-imposed exile. And despite remaining in London, Victor Frankenstein (Harry Treadaway) was so devastated by losing Lily (Billie Piper) to the flirtations of Dorian Gray (Reeve Carney) that he’d turned to the needle.
“So we walk alone,” Ethan’s parting words to Vanessa last year, are still ringing in everyone’s ears – especially, »
