Next March, Paramount Pictures Home Entertainment will bring Footloose to Blu-ray. This reimagining of the 1984 musical stars Kenny Wormald (Clerks II) as Ren MacCormack, a free-spirited Boston teenager whose efforts to bring dancing to his new home of Bomont, Georgia, pit him against the town's iron-willed Reverend (Dennis Quaid, G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra).
Paramount's Blu-ray/DVD/UltraViolet Digital Copy presents the film in its original aspect ratio of 2.39:1 with a 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio track. In addition, the disc includes the following supplements.

The remake was actually pretty close to the original in my opinion. Don't get me wrong, the original was better, but the remake was still pretty good. Try not to judge films too harshly before you see them, okay guys?
I'm a fan of the original '84 movie but I saw this one at the theater back in October, and yeah it was nothing different. I'd say the two movies are 95% alike with some differences here and there. Julianne Hough is a lot sexier than Lori Singer. Just saying!
