New trailer for Rock Of Ages: watch now

Tom Cruise is Stacee Jaxx

Rock Of Ages has released a new hairspray-drenched, leather-clad trailer featuring Tom Cruise as hair metal hero, Stacee Jaxx.

The new musical fromHairspray director Adam Shankman tells the story of a pair of wannabe rockers trying to make their mark on the '80s rock scene, but the undoubted star of the show is Tom Cruise's bona fide icon, Jaxx.

Whether belting his way through Bon Jovi's Wanted Dead Or Alive or making sure his pet monkey gets the proper respect, he's every inch the preening cock-rock megastar.

Take a look at the new trailer below…

Cruise aside, Alec Badlwin has clearly snaffled most of the best lines for himself. "Oh my God, I just threw up," he exclaims after one particularly world-shaking performance. "In my pants."

Featuring Russell Brand, Malin Akerman, Bryan Cranston and Catherine Zeta Jones, with hits from the likes of Journey, Foreigner and Whitesnake, Rock Of Ages opens in the UK on 15 June 2012. It promises to be the most fun you can have without slipping into a pair of leather trousers...

How does Cruise measure up as a rock icon? Tell us, below.

      Think I'll be giving that one a wide berth.

      It looks alright but it seems like the makers of the film have made most of the rock songs more into pop, which tbh just ruins the great name of rock. If it's just to make it appeal to a wider audience then that is pathetic. The words 'rock' and 'rock star' don't mean much these days, I've heard Eminem and children on the Disney channel refer to themselves as rock stars, I died a little inside.
