Bad graphic: if that were an actual football audience doing the Mexican Wave, the people in different colored jerseys would be to busy stabbing each other.

I’m in favor of this only if John Travolta reprises his iconic role.

I’ve always had a strong dislike for Grease. I don’t need this in my life. For those that feel they do, more power to ya!

I guess we’ll finally find out if “she put up a fight”. (Tell me more! Tell me more!)

There was a time I would have said this was a thin premise for a studio to hang a prequel on, but we live in a time where a movie based on the Battleship board game was a thing.

I do love the opening titles of the original movie, though, so thanks for posting that.

Just leave it be, the sequel wasn’t as bad as “Xanadu”, but it was still unwatchable. I assume a prequel would be just as bad.

Hahahahahah! Yes! That’s exactly what I was thinking.

I can’t imagine the point of “telling the story” of their “Summer Loving” any further than what was covered in the song. Wow. Who is the audience for this?

Is someone trying to launder drug money? Because this is how you launder drug money.

Speaking as a child of the 70s who owned that record and saw Grease in the theaters …
