The second trailer for Footloose – the 2011 remake, not the original 1984 film which starred a young Kevin Bacon – reveals slightly more about the characters than the first trailer did. However, it’s not distancing itself far from what made that first film so popular (although this version seems a little more dangerous and sexy).

The Plot: Ren MacCormack (Kenny Wormald) is transplanted from Boston to the small southern town of Bomont where he experiences a heavy dose of culture shock. A few years prior, the community was rocked by a tragic accident that killed five teenagers after a night out and Bomont’s local councilmen and the beloved Reverend Shaw Moore (Dennis Quaid) responded by implementing ordinances that prohibit loud music and dancing. Not one to bow to the status quo, Ren challenges the ban, revitalizing the town and falling in love with the minister’s troubled daughter Ariel (Julianne Hough) in the process.

Check out this second trailer from Footloose featuring Kenny Wormald stepping into Kevin Bacon’s dancing shoes:
