'Rock of Ages' Trailer a Cheesy, A-List Strewn Romp
Warner Bros. released the first trailer for its movie musical Rock of Ages on Tuesday. The 1980s-set movie, directed by Hairspray helmer Adam Shankman, is an adaptation of the Tony-nominated Broadway musical about a small-town girl (Julianne Hough) and city boy (Diego Boneta) who meet while both are pursuing their dreams of making it as an actress and rock star, respectively, in Hollywood.
The clip showcases many of the A-list cast members, including a long-haired, shirtless Tom Cruise as a rock star who gets asked to sign a fan's chest, Alec Baldwin (also donning long hair) as a club owner and Catherine Zeta-Jones as a woman who wants to shut down the club because it's nothing but a place for "sex."
It also features a slew of '80s hits, including Night Ranger's "Sister Christian," Journey's "Any Way You Want It" and a mash-up of Twisted Sister's "We're Not Gonna Take It" and Starship's "We Built This City."
The movie, which also stars Malin Akerman, Russell Brand, Paul Giamatti and Mary J. Blige, hits theaters June 1.
