Apparition has released the full trailer for The Runaways, starring Kristen Stewart, Dakota Fanning and Michael Shannon. The movie opens in limited theaters on March 19 before going wide on April 9.
The film follows two friends, Joan Jett (Stewart) and Cherie Currie (Fanning), as they rise from rebellious Southern California kids to rock stars of the now legendary group The Runaways that paved the way for future generations of girl bands. Joan and Cherie fall under the Svengali-like influence of rock impresario Kim Fowley (Shannon), who turns the group into an outrageous success and a family of misfits. With its tough-chick image and raw talent, the band quickly earns a name for itselfand so do its two leads: Joan is the band’s pure rock ‘n’ roll heart, while Cherie, with her Bowie-Bardot looks, is the sex kitten. The Runaways chronicles Joan and Cherie’s tumultuous relationship on and off stage, as the band starts to break out.
