Great Scott! Tim Curry gives 'Time Warp' lesson in new Rocky Horror Picture Show trailer



Just a jump to the left and a few months to go until we can cozy up to Fox's remake of the cult-classic science fiction double feature.

A new trailer for Fox's remake of The Rocky Horror Picture Show dropped Thursday, and it pays tribute to the show's audience participation element.

As Dr. Frank-N-Furter (Laverne Cox) delivers the punchy line, "I see you shiver with antici..." the audience in the theater clenches its fists waiting for the finished word before shouting "say it!"

The crowd feigns bursting hearts when she finishes with "pation!"

The trailer shows plenty of toilet paper thrown when Brad Majors (Ryan McCartan) yells "Great Scott!" and split-second glimpses of the new Columbia (Annaleigh Ashford), Riff Raff (Reeve Carney), Magenta (Christina Milian) and Eddie (Adam Lambert).

Perhaps hearts actually burst when the original Dr. Frank-N-Furter, Tim Curry (now playing the narrator/criminologist), appears to instruct in Time Warp basics: "It's just a jump to the left."

In addition to Cox and Curry, the show stars Victoria Justice (Janet Weiss), Staz Nair (Rocky) and Ben Vereen (Dr. Everett Scott).

The two-hour Rocky Horror Picture Show premieres in October on Fox.
