So, nine years after singing on the soundtrack for Moulin Rouge, Christina Aguilera is finally in a film about burlesque. Unless there’s a surprise alien attack halfway through the film, the trailer tells us what we need to know – a small town girl goes to the bright lights of LA and, after some minor trials and tribulations, makes it big. Cher plays the mentor roll and, at 64, is better preserved than some screen vampire queens. Maybe that’s the twist – she stays young by bathing in the blood of unsuccessful dancers.
I can dream, right?
