New Line Cinema and Warner Bros. Pictures have released a brand new trailer for Adam Shankmanís big screen version of the hit Broadway musical, Rock of Ages.
If you donít pay much attention to what is happening on stage, "Rock of Ages" was a musical based around some of the classic '80s hard rock and hair metal songs , a show that originated in Los Angeles in 2005--the cast including the likes of "Talking Dead" host Chris Hardwick and Tenacious D co-frontman Kyle Gass--before moving to Broadway in 2009 and becoming an enormous hit.
In the movie musical, Julianne Hough (Footloose) plays Sherrie Christian, the naÔve girl who comes to Hollywood seeking her fame and fortune and winding up in the inner drama at a local rock club called the Bourbon Room. There, she bonds with the equally ambitious Drew Boley, played by newcomer Diego Boneta, taking on the role that was played on Broadway by "American Idol" star Constantine Maroulis. The movie also stars Tom Cruise, Russell Brand, Alec Baldwin, Mary J. Blige, Paul Giamatti, Bryan Cranston and Catherine Zeta-Jones as the different characters around the young couple who affect their relationship and the ups and downs in their careers.
Last year, ComingSoon.net had a chance to visit the Miami set where they reconstructed the Sunset Strip circa 1980s on the streets and we had a chance to watch Julianne Hough performing an early number from the number, as well as talk to Boneta and director Adam Shankman, and hopefully, we can share some of that with you soon. In the meantime, enjoy the new trailer below!
