Early Peek at a "Dreamgirls" TV Spot

by | June 13, 2006 | Comments

Dark Horizons was kind enough to point us towards the YouTube page where an all-new "Dreamgirls" TV spot has been posted, and (like the earlier promo clip) it looks pretty darn cool.

"Based on the Tony Award-winning musical, "Dreamgirls" set in the turbulent late 1960s and early ’70s, "Dreamgirls" follows the rise of a trio of women — Effie (Jennifer Hudson), Deena (Beyonce Knowles) and Lorrell (Anika 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. (Jamie Foxx), who offers them the opportunity of a lifetime: to become the back-up singers for headliner James "Thunder" Early (Eddie 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."

Directed by Bill Condon, "Dreamgirls" hits theaters on December 22nd.
