The 9 Best Shots From the Showgirls 2 Trailer
If you weren't aware that there was a sequel in the works for Showgirls, Paul Verhoeven's doggy chow-scarfing love letter to the Nevada entertainment scene, don't feel too badly about it -- neither were we. But a tip from a reader brought us up to speed: An unknown eurocommodity named Marc Volander, according to German website Extratipp, had secured $25 million in financing and was hard at work on a follow-up that would revolve around the character of Hope, played in the original by noted German model/actress/vatever, Rena Riffel. JoBlo.com translated a plot summary thusly: "It's about stripper who died from a dose of contaminated cocaine. Her brother comes to Frankfurt to find the responsible and revenge." It's a revenge-driven mystery, darlin'! And you'll want to keep that in mind as you watch the brand new and deeply inscrutable trailer, featuring more girl-on-girl softcore action and solo lip-licking than you can shake a dumbbell at. Read on for a glimpse at its nine most arresting images, as selected by a Movieline Grand Jury of one.
