The Tony Award winning Broadway musical is extremely popular, and as with the likes of Mamma Mia and Les Miserables, the brand recognition alone could mean that the studio have a guaranteed hit on their hands.
It also helps that the trailer makes it clear that this is a Clint Eastwood film, and the fact that his style means it doesn’t look the typical musical adaptation should help draw in those new to Jersey Boys as well.
The songs in the preview are also extremely catchy, and the first big musical movie of 2014 seemingly has everything it needs to succeed. How do you think the Jersey Boys film will hold up to its Broadway counterpart?
Clint Eastwood’s big screen version of the Tony Award-winning musical tells the story of the four young men from the wrong side of the tracks in New Jersey who came together to form the iconic `60s rock group The Four Seasons. Their trials and triumphs are accompanied by the hit songs that influenced a generation, and are now being embraced by a new generation of fans through the stage musical.
Starring John Lloyd Young, Erich Bergen, Vincent Piazza, Michael Lomenda, and Christopher Walken, Jersey Boys is set to be released on June 20th, 2014.
