In support to the upcoming comedy "Hamlet 2", Focus Features have brought forth a video clip of the movie's center musical piece, "Rock Me Sexy Jesus". What makes it even more special is that it is presented in a sing-along format enabling fans to double the fun.
Described to be a twisted "Grease" meets "Jesus Christ Superstar" musical interlude, "Rock Me Sexy Jesus" clip displays the scene in which Dana Marschz's drama students and himself perform this musical number during the stage play. In lights of typical video clip for a movie, the sing-along footage also let out scenes from the irreverent comedy.
Directed by "Nancy Drew" helmer Andrew Fleming, "Hamlet 2" centers its story on a failed actor-turned-lousy drama teacher, Marschz. When one day he learns that his drama department is about to be shut down, he comes out with an idea to save it, staging a politically incorrect musical sequel to Shakespeare's Hamlet.
Posing Steve Coogan, Catherine Keener, Elisabeth Shue, David Arquette and Amy Poehler as the stars, the tidbit has been a hit at the 2008 Sundance Film Festival. It is set to be released at the big screen on August 29.
