Newcomer Kenny Wormald may have the brooding James Dean thing going for him, but as the second trailer has been released for the upcoming Footloose reboot, I just don’t see how he can stand up to Kevin Bacon‘s classic take on the character of Ren McCormack.  Not to mention Julianne Hough taking on the Lori Singer role!

If you’re familiar with the original (and who isn’t!?!), you’ll notice that plenty of the scenes look as if they’re lifted straight out of the 1984 film.  That was noticeably evident in the first trailer that was released.

I guess it’s just hard for me to believe that the story of a town with no dancing will have the same resonance today as it did over 25 years ago.  To tell you the truth, even then it seemed rather far-fetched.  Strangely, the trailer of the original film seems to carry more excitement than the two for the new film.

So what do YOU think?  Do you think the new one shows any promise?  The movie is set to be released on October 14th.  Let us know in the comments section below!
