Somehow, the 'in name only' genre still appears to be kicking. :unsure:
You could only really pull off something as outlandish as Jem by doing it as a daft eighties period piece, and by not trying too hard to re-imagine it for today's audiences. That way, old fans look at the movie fondly, new fans embrace the energy and silliness of it all.

Looks like they're trying to appeal to the Pitch Perfect/Step Up/Glee crowd which is cool and all but doesn't fit the original at all. They could've gone all out for this but looks a little lackluster.
