We're already shivering with antici...pation.

FOX's made-for-television remake of The Rocky Horror Picture Show unveiled a new trailer at San Diego Comic-Con on Thursday afternoon in Los Angeles, and it gives us hope that star Laverne Cox will be a fitting successor to the throne of Frank-n-Furter.

Remaking something as deeply entrenched in fan culture as The Rocky Horror Picture Show is a gamble, to put it lightly. The trailer shows off more of Cox's chops and introduces rest of the the cast. The narrator is also played by a very special guest: Tim Curry himself. 

Seeing the malevolent glimmer in Cox's eye tells us that October is too long to wait for a remake that, for once, looks worthy of its source material. We can't wait (and it looks like she can't either).
