Oscar® nominees Queen Latifah
("Chicago," "Hairspray") and Dolly Parton ("Transamerica," "Steel
Magnolias," "Nine to Five") star in Alcon Entertainment's and Warner
Bros. Pictures' "Joyful Noise," a funny and inspirational story of
music, hope, love and renewal.
The small town of Pacashau,
Georgia, has fallen on hard times, but the people are counting on the
Divinity Church Choir to lift their spirits by winning the National
Joyful Noise Competition. The choir has always known how to sing in
harmony, but the discord between its two leading ladies now threatens to
tear them apart. Their newly appointed director, Vi Rose Hill
(Latifah), stubbornly wants to stick with their tried-and-true

tried-and-true translates to tired-and-old.
The film is set to be released in U.S. theaters on January 13, 2012.
