Christina Aguilera and Julianne Hough are making their feature-film debuts while superstar Cher is returning to the big screen after a decade’s absence for the new showgirl film Burlesque. 

The trailer hit the web last week, and the movie seems to be following the footsteps of films like Coyote Ugly and Glitter.  The movie centers on Ali, a small-town girl played by X-Tina who heads to the city and tries to make it big at a Burlesque bar owned by Cher’s character, Tess.  Ali struggles to earn a place on stage, but as soon as she belts out a song, she dazzles the bar regulars and earns a spot in the show.  She is then skyrocketed to fame and must face the cut-throat nature of the business.

Forgetting Sarah Marshall star Kristin Bell goes brunette to play Nikki, Ali’s rival, while Julianne Hough, a former Dancing With the Stars pro, sports a red wig for her role as Georgia, a fellow dancer.  Cam Gigandet of Twilight also stars in the film, along with Stanley Tucci, Peter Gallagher, and Eric Dane of Grey’s Anatomy.

Featuring new music from Christina, the film may hopefully serve as good publicity for the pop artist, whose latest album sales have plummeted. 

Plus, it looks like we may also get to see Cher take the stage as a Burlesque dancer!
