BURLESQUE  starring Cher & Xtina - poster

The new movie musical starring Cher and Christina Aguilera. Yes, there is another movie musical in the future besides NINE!

It's in the microscopic lettering at the bottom.

Surprised her name isn't big like the 20-somethings. Her role is arguably 2nd lead, but I guess it's a considered a featured role now... or maybe she'll get her own poster and this is meant only for the young'uns?

What a hideous poster. Could have at least got a better looking corset? Looks like something bought at a thrift store, then taken a quick snap shot of with a digital camera, and cropped.

I wonder if this will be any good. I'm quite intrigued.

As am I! It seems kinda 'Cabaret-ish' according to what I read on Wiki, and I am one of the BIGGEST effing Joel Grey fans in the WORLD :)

this looks extremely fake
You're reminding me of people you hear at the movies asking questions every ten seconds, "Who is that? Why is that guy walking down the street? Who's that lady coming up to him? Uh-oh, why did that car go by? Why is it so dark in this theater?" - FindingNamo on strummergirl

"If artists were machines, then I'm just a different kind of machine...I'd probably be a toaster. Actually, I'd be a toaster oven because they're more versatile. And I like making grilled cheese" -Regina Spektor

"That's, like, twelve shows! ...Or seven." -Crazy SA Fangirl

"They say that just being relaxed is the most important thing [in acting]. I take that to another level, I think kinda like yawning and...like being partially asleep onstage is also good, but whatever." - Sherie Rene Scott

It looks like it belongs on a playbill in some respects.

Shouldn't it be "Xina"? Like "Xmas"? Or why not just spell her name?

She goes by Xtina and Christina both. And, no, it's not like Madonna/Madge.

Stanley Tucci confirms his involvement (though not if he will sing).

To gay men and people of the 70s/80s, sure. But put a picture of Cher next to Christina Aquilera in front of a teenage male, they'll question who the old, fake looking lady is.

Put her on the poster, sure, but Christina should (and will) be front, center, and scantily clad.

Apparently, Diablo Cody penned the 2nd draft of the screenplay, though most of her material has been jettisoned in the latest draft. Interesting.

Her tweet:

"@20s_30s_40s I'm not sure. I was the "middle writer," so probably only few things remain in the shooting script. Excited for Cher, though!"

A film so quirky and nonconformist that Diablo Cody was too "normal" to write for it?

Or a film so banal and predictable that Diablo Cody was too quirky and original to write for it?

Time will tell.

However, if we have learned one thing from the film I Know Who Killed Me, it's that cabaret strip-teases that cheat us on even pastie-clad nudity come off as cheating. Show the goods if you're gonna do the part, Xtina.

And Cher, don't you freakin' DARE.

"The gods who nurse this universe think little of mortals' cares. They sit in crowds on exclusive clouds and laugh at our love affairs. I might have had a real romance if they'd given me a chance. I loved him, but he didn't love me. I wanted him, but he didn't want me. Then the gods had a spree and indulged in another whim. Now he loves me, but I don't love him." - Cole Porter

WOW! This is A LOT better than I thought it would look... Cher seems like she is having a BLAST!

The white satin number looks KILLER!

Is it just me or does this look like everything NINE tried to be but failed so miserably at?
