“Dreamgirls” Excerpts Presented at Cannes

Four of the musical scenes from the upcoming film version of DREAMGIRLS were screened at the Cannes Film Festival, where they generated a lot of positive buzz.

And according to Time Magazine, the four new songs in the film have all been written by original composter Henry Krieger: a new song for Effie, a new ballad for Deena, a “Marvin Gaye-style protest number” named “Patience” for James Thunder Early, and a song for a Jackson Five-type group that features in a new subplot (maybe the new subplot involving John Lithgow’s character?).

And now there’s a new “Behind the Scenes” trailer. (I’m cringing at some of the dialogue, but otherwise it looks fantastic)
