“Grease” Gets A Re-Release And A Video Game
So I know that, by virtue of being female, I am supposed to love “Grease.” But to be honest, I’ve just never gotten that into it. Something about the message, “If you want the guy … change yourself and wear more pleather,” just never sat that well with me. So I’m wondering why “Grease” is having such a revival at the moment. Last week, Paramount Pictures re-released the flick as “Grease: The Sing-A-Long” in five cities in the U.S. Residents of other cities can go online and vote to get the movie in their area, too. And that’s not all. 505 Games is making “Grease: The Video Game,” which will be available for Wii and Ninetendo DS on August 24. As the press release reads, it’s “loaded with mini-games that let players sing the movie’s iconic songs, dance the hand jive hop, race down Thunder Road, fight for Sandy’s affections and have fun at the fair with Frenchy, Kenickie, Rizzo and the rest of the Greasers.” See a preview for the game after the jump.
So what do you think? Is “Grease” the one that you want, or does this news give you chills that are multiplying in a bad way?
