I have been remiss in not sharing the first Rock of Ages trailer and now there is a second one as well. Rock of Ages is based on the Broadway musical of the same name. There is a huge cast for the film including Julianne Hough, Diego Boneta, Russell Brand, Paul Giamatti, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Malin Ackerman, Mary J. Blige, Bryan Cranston, Alec Baldwin, and Tom Cruise. The film is set in the 1980s so the costumes and slang are pretty funny. What makes it is all of the 80s hair bands whose songs are used in the film as well as in the musical. The film looks like a good time, especially for those of us that grew up during the 80s.
“”Rock of Ages” tells the story of small town girl Sherrie and city boy Drew, who meet on the Sunset Strip while pursuing their Hollywood dreams. Their rock ‘n’ roll romance is told through the heart-pounding hits of Def Leppard, Joan Jett, Journey, Foreigner, Bon Jovi, Night Ranger, REO Speedwagon, Pat Benatar, Twisted Sister, Poison, Whitesnake, and more.”
Rock of Ages is in theatres June 15, 2012.
