Dolby’s New ‘Mean Girls’ Poster Teases The Classic “Jingle Bell Rock” Dance Number

Christmas is right around the corner, and there are loads of unforgettable, iconic moments in holiday films that we look forward to watching every year. One of those is the inspiration for the new Dolby Cinemas poster for next year’s Mean Girls. You know the scene I’m talking about. It’s the classic “Jingle Bell Rock” dance number featuring all of the film’s central clique of high school frenemies.

This new Mean Girls is a big-screen adaptation of the popular stage musical, itself based on Tina Fey’s hilarious 2004 comedy film. The image features stars Angourice Rice as Cady Heron, Reneé Rapp as Regina George, plus Bebe Wood as Gretchen Wieners, and Avantika Vandanapu as Karen Shetty, all decked out like scantily-dressed little Santa elves.

“We’re thrilled to reveal the exclusive Dolby Cinema artwork for the upcoming musical comedy film Mean girls,” Jed Harmsen, Head of Cinema and Group Entertainment at Dolby said. “With Dolby Cinema, audiences will feel like they’re transported to Northshore High as every detail (and shade of pink) is captured in stunning clarity with Dolby Vision and the iconic musical numbers are brought to life with the immersive sound of Dolby Atmos. There’s no better way to experience Mean Girls than at Dolby Cinema.”

The new film was written by Fey and is directed by Samantha Jayne and Arturo Perez Jr.

Here’s the synopsis: From the comedic mind of Tina Fey comes a new twist on the modern classic, MEAN GIRLS. New student Cady Heron (Angourie Rice) is welcomed into the top of the social food chain by the elite group of popular girls called “The Plastics,” ruled by the conniving queen bee Regina George (Reneé Rapp) and her minions Gretchen (Bebe Wood) and Karen (Avantika). However, when Cady makes the major misstep of falling for Regina’s ex-boyfriend Aaron Samuels (Christopher Briney), she finds herself prey in Regina’s crosshairs. As Cady sets to take down the group’s apex predator with the help of her outcast friends Janis (Auli’i Cravalho) and Damian (Jaquel Spivey), she must learn how to stay true to herself while navigating the most cutthroat jungle of all: high school.

Mean Girls opens in theaters on January 12th 2024, and you can pre-order tickets to experience it in the Dolby Cinema near you by going here.
