We got our first look at Adam Shankman’s upcoming film adaptation of the Broadway musical, Rock of Ages, back in the summer with a great photo of Alec Baldwin and Russell Brand looking the part, followed swiftly by one of Tom Cruise looking awesome on stage.
The first trailer and poster for the film have now debuted over at Apple’s iTunes Movie Trailers, via ComingSoon.net, and they are fantastic, with Baldwin especially shining in his scenes, and looking awesome with a full head of long, shaggy hair.
““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.”
The cast is excellent, with Diego Boneta and Julianne Hough starring in the younger roles of Drew and Sherrie, and an older cast headed up by the likes of Cruise, Baldwin, Brand, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Paul Giamatti, Mary J. Blige, Malin Akerman, and Bryan Cranston.
The film is due to hit our screens on 8th June next summer, and judging by this first trailer, it’s going to be a lot of fun, with some ridiculously great music from start to finish. Without further ado, here’s the trailer in all its musical awesomeness, followed up by the film’s first poster. And if you’d like to watch the trailer in stunning HD, then you can click over to Apple here.
