The iconic high-school musical – from the days when ‘Glee’ and, well, ‘High School Musical’ were still a glint in the janitor’s eye – ‘Grease’ is turning 40 this year and everyone’s invited. Fully restored, given an extra lick of Brylcreem and unleashed again on the big screen, it’ll be out in Cineworld and Vue cinemas across the country in April.
To promote that, here’s an exclusive new trailer showcasing the glorious John-Travolta-and-Olivia-Newton-John-iness of it all. Trust us, it will put groove and meaning into your afternoon. Click below and let the nostalgia rush begin.
For newbies, ‘Grease’ was first released in 1978, features one of the greatest soundtracks committed to vinyl, fast cars, rock ’n’ roll, and a bit where Newton-John basically breaks bad by getting a perm. It’s groundbreaking, inspiring, uplifting, automatic, systematic and hydromatic.
The restored 40th anniversary edition of ‘Grease’ is in cinemas on Apr 19.
