You Need To See This Trailer For The "Rocky Horror" Remake

OK, OK. We're all shivering with antici...pation.

ICYMI, a Fox remake of the 1975 cult classic The Rocky Horror Picture Show is set to be televised later this year in celebration of its 40th anniversary.

And last week we got our first look at Orange Is the New Black's Laverne Cox in the starring role of Dr. Frank-N-Furter.

But now we have been blessed with the first trailer for the remake, and it looks pretty damn amazing:

The trailer contains some pretty accurate throwbacks to the original, like the opening shot of Janet and Brad approaching the castle.


We get a glimpse of Victoria Justice and Ryan McCartan in the roles of Janet Weiss and Brad Majors, who were originally played by Susan Sarandon and Barry Bostwick.


As well as a quick shot of Reeve Carney as Riff Raff.


But the best part is definitely our first ~real~ look at Laverne Cox in the iconic role of Frank-N-Furter.

There's no doubt about it: This is going to be incredible.


My body is ready.
