Well, we’ve ordered our copies already, just in case you missed seeing this movie in theaters it’s being released on November 20th.
Not only did we order a copy for us, we also ordered a copy for my Mom in England and Deusex’s Mom is getting one for Christmas. We had my Mom visit us in Toronto earlier this year, and we took the opportunity to show her where parts of the movie were filmed – The “Hardy Har Hut” shown during the shoot at the corner of Eastern and Carlaw (Gale’s Snack Bar never looked so good!!!) Plus a few other locations around Town, it was so much fun.
Before and after the shoot!
Right across the street is the building that had the poster of the singing trio “The Dynamites” come to life on it, freshly painted white now – and kinda boring.
This version of the movie is based on the original 1988 movie by John Waters, but with the addition of all the music and lyrics from the Broadway show. Starring John Travolta, Michelle Pfeiffer, Christopher Walken and Nikki Blonsky as Tracy Turnblad it’s a must have for your DVD collection! Get it from Amazon by clicking the link below.
Let’s not forget the original movie starring Divine aka Harris Glenn Milstead, I guess i’m going to date myself now by telling you I had the opportunity to see Divine perform several times in London in the early/mid 80’s, twice at Heaven and twice at the London Hippodrome (now defunct). What can I say, Divine was one of the best live entertainers I’ve ever seen!
This last video was shot at the World Premiere of the 1988 version in Baltimore! Enjoy!
