Wesley Snipe and Patrick Swayze's movie trailer -- A look at the teaser of ''To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything, Julie Newmar''

Wesley Snipe and Patrick Swayze's movie trailer

Wesley Snipes pulverizes a punching bag as the voice-over intones, ''He's been a killer and a commando.'' Patrick Swayze throws a martial-arts kick as the voice-over points out, ''He's been a heartthrob and a hero.'' But just when you're thinking what a dynamic duo these guys would make, surprise: They're strutting their stuff in full drag. This is the trailer for To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything, Julie Newmar, in which Snipes, Swayze, and John Leguizamo play New York drag queens driving across country to Hollywood. We've been wondering how these guys would walk that walk and talk that talk. This preview provides the answer — while hedging its bets by also showing our ''heroines'' squaring off against rednecks. ''It's Thelma & Louise meets Priscilla, Queen of the Desert,'' pronounced one woman in a Manhattan theater. Universal's marketing department couldn't have put it better.
