Release and promotion
The film was originally scheduled for release in North America on April 1, 2011, but was moved to October 14, 2011. Footloose was released in Australia and New Zealand on October 6, 2011.
Paramount and HSN partnered for a 24-hour promotion on October 12, 2011. They sold clothing inspired by the film, such as women s red boots, denim, footwear and nail polish brands created by Vince Camuto and Steve Madden. To promote the film, Paramount sent the cast and director on a promotional tour in over a dozen cities.
Footloose was promoted on the October 11, 2011, episode of Dancing with the Stars. The episode featured film stars Kenny Wormald and Julianne Hough—a former champion on the show—dancing to the songs Holding Out for a Hero and Footloose from the film s soundtrack with Blake Shelton performing the song live. At the CMA Awards, Shelton was joined by original Footloose performer Kenny Loggins to sing the song. Many of Viacom owned channels, like MTV, Nickelodeon and CMT advertised and promoted the film.
Pre-release audience pollings predicted the film to take in $20 million its opening weekend. However, Paramount expected it to be closer to $15 million. Footloose opened in 3,549 theaters taking in $15.5 million and placing number two, behind Real Steel ($16.2 million) in its opening weekend. Exit polls indicated that the film appealed to 75 percent of females and 28 percent of the teen market. About 60 percent of the audience were over age 25 and 46 percent over age 35. The 20th highest grossing locations on Friday were in Salt Lake City, Oklahoma City, Knoxville, Kansas City, and San Antonio. The opening was lower than other recent dance films like, Save the Last Dance (2001, $23.4 million), Step Up (2006, $20.7 million), but it performed around the same as Step Up 3D (2010, $15.8 million) and You Got Served (2004, $16.1 million). The 1984 Footloose opened to $20 million when adjusted for ticket price inflation. In its second weekend the film held well, with a drop of 34 percent. It placed third and grossed an estimated $10.4 million.
In Australia, the film opened to $1.05 million and to $88,078 in New Zealand. Footloose has grossed $51.1 million in the United States and Canada, and $10.9 million in other countries, for a worldwide total of $62 million. The 1984 Footloose grossed over $80 million worldwide.
Review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes reports that 68% of 174 surveyed critics have given the film a positive review; the average rating is 6.0/10. The website s consensus is: While it hews closely to the 1984 original, Craig Brewer infuses his Footloose remake with toe-tapping energy and manages to keep the story fresh for a new generation. Metacritic, which assigns a weighted average score out of 100 to reviews from mainstream critics, gives the film a score of 58 based on 35 reviews. CinemaScore polls reported that the average grade moviegoers gave the film was an A on an A+ to F scale.
Lisa Schwarzbaum of Entertainment Weekly gave the film an A−. Praising the performance of Wormald, she said he handily owns the role for a new audience and closed her review saying, Guardians of the 80s flame will approve of the production s sincere respect for the original; church still matters, and so do Ariel s red cowboy boots. Roger Ebert of the Chicago Sun-Times rated the film one and half stars out of four, calling it a film without wit, humor or purpose . Ebert further criticized the film for being too close to the 1984 original and Wormald s lack of charisma compared to Bacon.
Variety s Rob Nelson wrote that the film failed to distinguished itself from the original and criticized Wormald and Hough s acting performances, saying, When the music stops, young Hough is saddled, like her co-star, with the impossible task of making 27-year-old verbiage sound fresh. Nelson wrote that Brewer s musical staging is subtly less theatrical than Ross , but it hardly constitutes a reinvention and that Brewer s film comes across as slightly milder than Ross , such as with Ariel s abuse by former boyfriend being toned down for 2011. Todd McCarthy of The Hollywood Reporter disliked how the dance numbers and action sequences were staged, shot and cut, saying, The visual clumsiness does not disguise that Wormald (a professional dancer since extreme youth), especially, but the others too, are very good dancers. But the compositions vary randomly between close-ups, awkward medium shots and general coverage that cuts together with no cumulative dynamic power. Orlando Sentinel s Roger Moore gave the film two and half out of four stars.
Kenneth Turan of the Los Angeles Times wrote that the film doesn t have the emotional impact of the original, but it ups the energy level. He said that the film was not so much a remake as a renovation and said the remake is similar to the original in all the ways that count . The New York Times s A. O. Scott called the dance numbers woefully inadequate when compared with Glee, High School Musical and Step Up. For Wormald s performance he said, He has energy but no real magnetism, and while he may be in possession of what are technically known as moves , his dancing lacks sensuality and a sense of release. Scott gave Miles Teller a good review saying that he has a natural charisma that is both comic and kind of sexy . He described the music in the remake as better and more eclectic than the original, with some blues, country and vintage metal mixed in with the peppy dance tunes .
Paramount Home Entertainment released Footloose on DVD and Blu-ray on March 6, 2012.
