This is the third trailer to be released from the film. Last month, a longer theatrical trailer had been released, and last November another teaser trailer had been released. Each trailer shows slightly different footage from the film, which hits U.S. theaters on April 2.
In a new, short interview with UK newspaper the Daily Telegraph, fashion designer Todd Lynn, who created the clothes for Janet's "Make Me" video and other recent public appearances, talks about what it was like to work with her:
"I had met Janet's stylist about a year ago while on a business trip to Los Angeles. He called me after the most recent spring/summer show saying that Janet had seen the new collection and really liked it a lot. There were a lot of discussions between the stylist and myself about what Janet ultimately wanted for the video."
"I have to say that she looks absolutely incredible. She's an important and iconic musical artist of our times. I was thrilled that she liked my work. I guess we both like that futuristic feel when it comes to style. I've always been a fan of sci-fi and for me it's all about sci-fi that doesn't look completely stereotypical. It's the dark side of future. And Janet has edge to her and has always pushed boundaries in her work."
As was previouslyreported, Janet attended Todd Lynn's show during London's Fashion Week this past Sunday.
Yesterday evening, Hungarian ice dancers Nora Hoffman and Maxim Zavozin took to the ice at the Winter Olympics in Vancouver and performed to an instrumental version of Janet's 2006 track "So Excited" during the free dance portion of the ice dancing competition.
Rodney Jerkins has released a new Janet song featuring Pitbull titled "HeartBeatLove."
The song can be streamed and downloaded at Jerkins' website. You need to register to the website in order to view the link.
This is the final version of a demo revealed several weeks ago, which at the time was titled "Not My Love."
There has been no announcement as to the official release to this song. Jerkins is currently working with Janet on her forthcoming new album.
Update: According to people familiar with the project, "HeartBeatLove" is not being released as a single. Janet allowed Rodney Jerkins to release the song to fans "for fun." Future plans for the song are not known.
Jermaine Dupri spoke with MTV News at this Sunday's NBA All Star game in Dallas where he both answered and dodged some questions in regards to "Nothing," the new song that he produced for Janet from the soundtrack of Why Did I Get Married Too?
"We had to do this record in like three days to get it into this movie - it was a last minute thing that her and Tyler [Perry] talked about," he said in regards to the speed with which they had to make the song.
He refused to explain what the track sounds like other than saying, "I can say this - y'all haven't heard her like this in a long time."
The video for the 25th anniversary recording of "We Are the World" will have its world premiere on Friday night sometime between 7:30 PM EST and midnight during NBC's live broadcast of the Winter Olympics opening ceremonies in Vancouver.
Janet recorded lines for the remake of the song last Tuesday while in Atlanta. The other performers recorded their vocals together at a Hollywood studio one day prior. It has been reported that Janet sang the same lines that her brother Michael Jackson did on the original version. The re-recording's official title is "We Are the World 25 for Haiti."
Immediately following the televised premiere, both the song and video will be made available to purchase on iTunes. Proceeds of each download go to the We Are the World Foundation, a non-profit organization whose funds will be directed to worthwhile charities, hand-selected by the board of directors, which include Quincy Jones and Lionel Richie. The artists have agreed to forego payment, so the Foundation can receive a greater share of the proceeds. iTunes has even waived its share of the proceeds for downloads for the first months of the Foundation's campaign. Additional donations to the Foundation can be made on its official website at www.world25.org.
MTV.com earlier today posted a video clip from the recording of the song on their website. The clip, however, does not feature Janet's part.

McQueen was known for his over-the-top and unconventional designs.
In 2004, he designed the outfit that Janet wore during her Super Bowl halftime show performance. Most recently, Janet wore a kimono he designed to the launch party of his Los Angeles boutique in May of 2008. The two can be seen posing together at that event in the last picture of this group:
A portion of the text from Janet's new interview that appears in the February/March issue of Wonderland Magazine can now be read on the magazine's official web site.
Scans of each page from the magazine, which features new photos of Janet, can also be found on the site.
In the interview, she answers questions regarding her fashion and previous photo shoots, explains that some of the artists she likes these days include Alicia Keys and Taylor Swift (whom she says she "absolutely adores"), reveals that she loves the TV show Gossip Girl, and says that if "That's the Way Love Goes" was released today it probably wouldn't be a hit because of the way the industry works now. The magazine hits newsstands on February 5.
Most of the singers participating in the song, which included Barbara Streisand, Kanye West, Celine Dion, Tony Bennett, LL Cool J, will.i.am, and Josh Groban, recorded their vocals together on Monday at the same Hollywood studio where the original version of the song was made.
Janet, however, was not present at the session on Monday but rather is scheduled to sing her lines from a studio in Atlanta on Tuesday. As was reported yesterday, Janet is in Atlanta right now to film promotional materials for the release of Why Did I Get Married Too?
More than 70 celebrities lent their voices to the re-recording of the song. None of the singers of the original song were invited to participate in the update, which was recorded once again under the oversight of Quincy Jones and the song's co-writer Lionel Richie.
The song will make its world premiere during NBC's coverage of the Vancouver Winter Olympics on Feb. 12.
Both the song and an accompanying video, shot by Oscar-winning "Crash" director Paul Haggis, will go on sale both through traditional and online retailers. All proceeds will go to a newly established foundation that will carefully monitor disbursement.
The Jan. 12 earthquake killed up to 200,000 people in Haiti and devastated the already impoverished nation.
Janet wrote a message on Twitter this afternoon indicating that she is in Atlanta right now with the cast of Why Did I Get Married Too?:
In ATL to discuss Why Did I Get Married Too on @TylerPerry's show. It's great to see the cast again. 23 minutes ago from web
No other details were given.
UPDATE: The show Janet mentioned in her message is likely to be "The Tyler Perry Show," which is an hour-long special that Perry usually films every time he has a new movie that is about to be released. The specials, which feature the entire cast of his movies, normally air on TBS just prior to the release of each of film.
