I'm really looking forward to this... please, Ryan Murphy, don't ruin another project with the potential to be a smash hit.

I loved the OBC recording. Just wish I went to New York to see the show. But I’ve been waiting over a year for this movie.

While it looks good, I’m sorry but I just can’t get past the Corden casting.

Looks good, but I still wished they kept some of the original broadway cast, especially Beth and Caitlin.

The stage version looked a little outdated, so I'm happy to see Murphy has modernized its look. I love the new artwork as well. Clearly he is living up to "go big, or you've blown it." Could this be his first success since the earlier episodes of "Glee"?

And bwaylyric, I agree with you on this after watching the trailer. At the very least, I do believe Vasthy Mompoint is involved with this adaptation as well.

I agree! It’s going to Netflix, I don’t Streep needs to be in every movie musical. Beth would have slayed it like she did on Broadway.

The trailer does look surprisingly good. I'm still disappointed with a lot of the casting (were no gay men available for Barry? Are we supposed to believe someone as beautiful as Kidman has been an ensemble player all her life? They wanted an unknown for the lead but didn't want to cast the unknown who got a Tony nomination?), but I love the colorful tone. The tiny bit of the music we hear sounds like it has some adjusted orchestrations which sound great. Fingers crossed for this one

Happy that he didn't say the D slur. Hope it reminds that way in the actual scene.

Why doesn't this town have lights inside? Everything looks very dark (not in the emotional way).

It really took me a while to figure out what word you were referring to here. "Dyke" has been largely reclaimed for a while.

Corden looks awful in the role. Otherwise everything else looks great!
A Chorus Line revival played its final Broadway performance on August 17, 2008. The tour played its final performance on August 21, 2011. A new non-equity tour started in October 2012 played its final performance on March 23, 2013. Another non-equity tour launched on January 20, 2018. The tour ended its US run in Kansas City and then toured throughout Japan August & September 2018.

Could this be his first success since the earlier episodes of "Glee"?

Hahaha.  I hope you’re kidding.  GLEE was ages ago and the success he’s since received with his anthology shows on FX and now Netflix eclipses GLEE by a million miles.  GLEE is such an embarrassment it’s never referenced anywhere aside from this message board.

^Glee is huge now on social media, mostly pointing out how bad it was. Memes galore.

This looks great, can’t wait!

I'm sure we all know that casting means eyeballs. Not just for here in a America, but for overseas markets as well. Me on the other hand, would love to have see some fresh faces or some of the original Broadway members be involved , but  I understand this needs well known folks to attract the overseas viewers as well; James Corden is a staple in London.

A while back Harvey Fierstein mentioned how the casting of Hairspray the musical movie, was all backed by Chinese investors. John Travolta is a huge draw in China. So in order to get the funding to back the movie to be made and to have a potential box office success....who did they have to cast....?

I had heard the first season or two was favorably reviewed for the most part, before it all turned to sh*t. Say what you want about the series and Murphy's career post-"Glee," but I think The Prom might be the first time in a long while that Murphy can experience what "not failing feels like."

I guess it’s safe to assume the global sensation and critically applauded RATCHED on Netflix evaded your radar?  Or the endless awards his shows have won?  Not one of his projects has gone overlooked, regardless of their reception.  They all have an audience even among the haters.  That, mon ami, is career success.  When even people who hate your work even watch it.

You're probably the only person to use critically applauded and RATCHED in the same sentence. https://www.rottentomatoes.com/tv/ratched/s01

And clearly you missed the first season of American Crime Story: OJ Simpson.  Probably the best thing Ryan has done.  Maybe the first few seasons of Nip/Tuck too (although that was pre-Glee).
