The first trailer for Rock Of Ages has arrived online, and chances are if you’ve ever owned an album from the likes of Journey, Foreigner or Whitesnake, you’re going to love it.
Adapted from the stage musical and set amid the crotch-thrusting excesses of the ’80s, the film sees “smalltown girl” (see what we did there?) Julianne Hough fall head over heels with Diego Boneta's city boy (sorry), while Tom Cruise’s hair-metal rocker rips it up on-stage.
Meanwhile, Catherine Zeta Jones plays a religious wing-nut who doesn’t like rock and roll, and won’t be putting a dime anywhere near that jukebox.
Take a look at the trailer below…
As a celebration of a musical era that is basically one long guilty pleasure, enjoyment of this one will likely rest on your tolerance for middle-aged men in spandex and interminable, finger-shredding guitar solos. Fortunately, we’re quite fond of all that, and so will probably be giving it a look!
Alec Baldwin, Russell Brand, Malin Akerman and Paul Giamatti are all among the supporting cast, with Hairspray’s Adam Shankman filling the director’s chair. Time to dust off that old Poison album ahead of the film’s release on 8 June 2012.
