This remake of the popular 1984 musical romance centers on a big-city teen who moves to a town that has outlawed dancing.

Uprooted from Boston and reluctantly transplanted to the small Bible Belt town of Bomont, Ren MacCormack (Kenny Wormald) finds himself in a repressed community still reeling from a devastating loss.

Real Steel
Hugh Jackman's robot boxing movie "Real Steel" has narrowly fought off competition from new dance remake "Footloose" to make it a second week atop the box office chart.

"Real Steel" locked down an extra $16.3 million in ticket sales this week to remain at number one, edging out "Footloose," starring Kenny Wormald in the part made famous by Kevin Bacon in 1984. It debuted in second place with opening weekend takings of $16.1 million.

Horror reboot "The Thing" entered the countdown at three, while Steve Martin's comedy "The Big Year" failed to tickle audiences and opened in ninth place.

Things kick off some time after this, when Bahstonian Ren MahCormahhhck, moves to the biahble-belt south to live with his...
