Entertainment Weekly recaps:
“It’s not easy having a good time.” These are some of the first words we hear from Laverne Cox as Dr. Frank-N-Furter in the trailer for Fox’s remake of The Rocky Horror Picture Show. Indeed, judging by Janet (Victoria Justice)’s timid giggle and the short clip we hear of “The Time Warp,” the cast has been hard at work breathing new life into Transsexual, Transylvania. And it looks like a ball.
At the same time, though, the clip — released Monday for Fox’s Upfronts — leaves more to the imagination than Brad (Ryan McCartan) and Janet’s undergarments, as there’s still plenty to see of Reeve Carney (as Riff Raff), Christina Milian (Magenta), Annaleigh Ashford (Columbia), Adam Lambert (Eddie), and Tim Curry (the Narrator).
