New Pictures From Burlesque Released
We’re not going to beat around the bush here – we’ve been salivating over the movie Burlesque for quite some time now and now we’ve got some pictures to share with you!
Courtesy of USA Today and Slash Film, we’ve got some pictures of Christina Aguilera shaking her cans on stage and Stanley Tucci and Cher mooching around backstage admiring costumes.
USA Today have also provided more information about the plot of the movie:
‘Aguilera’s Ali runs away from Iowa in search of fame and ends up waitressing at The Burlesque Lounge on the Sunset Strip. But not for long. “Christina really takes it all off in terms of makeup and hair for a lot of the movie,” says director/writer Steven Antin. “She looks like a girl right off the farm.” That is until Kristen Bell’s headliner, Nikki, shows up tipsy one night and Ali must fill in.
Ali helps turn what once was a lip-sync club into a singing-and-dancing revue after she displays her vocal fireworks onstage in numbers like But I’m a Good Girl. Cher is Tess, owner of a retro club who has a modern-day problem: She can’t make the payments on her over-mortgaged property. Together, Ali and Tess manage to transform the Burlesque Lounge into a success. Stanley Tucci is Sean, the lounge’s stage manager, a go-to guy for the gals and best friend to Tess.’
Sounds like fun, right? OK enough plot, let’s get to the pics!
