ComingSoon.net is hosting the very first and rather early teaser trailer for "Dreamgirls," a Broadway adaptation which will star Jamie Foxx, Beyonce Knowles, and Eddie Murphy.
"DreamWorks Pictures has released a teaser trailer for writer/director Bill Condon‘s Dreamgirls a year before its release next December. Based on the Tony Award-winning musical, the adaptation stars Jamie Foxx, Beyonce Knowles, Eddie Murphy, Danny Glover, Anika Noni Rose, Jennifer Hudson and Keith Robinson.
The film follows the rise of a trio of women — Effie (Hudson), Deena (Knowles) and Lorrell (Noni Rose) — who have formed a promising girl group called The Dreamettes. At a talent competition, they are discovered by an ambitious manager named Curtis Taylor, Jr. (Foxx), who offers them the opportunity of a lifetime: to become the back-up singers for headliner James "Thunder" Early (Murphy). Curtis gradually takes control of the girls’ look and sound, eventually giving them their own shot in the spotlight as The Dreams. That spotlight, however, begins to narrow in on Deena, finally pushing the less attractive Effie out altogether. Though the Dreams become a cross-over phenomenon, they soon realize that the cost of fame and fortune may be higher than they ever imagined."
