It’s time to get the shoulder pads out, destroy the ozone layer with tin after tin of hairspray as its time to rock this city with a new second trailer for ROCK OF AGES. Adam Shankman’s big screen adaptation of the popular musical of the same name and the new trailer does have plenty of new footage, monkey called Hermann in a leather jacket and Tom Cruise singing! Yes Cruise belts out Bon Jovi’s “Wanted Dead or Alive” .ROCK OF AGES will be a musical journey down memory lane with songs from such rock bands of the 1980s such as Journey, Foreigner, Styx, and REO Speedwagon dominating the music in the film.
Rock of Ages tells the story of small town girl Sherrie and city boy Drew, who meet on the Sunset Strip while pursuing their Hollywood dreams. Their rock ‘n’ roll romance is told through the heart-pounding hits of Def Leppard, Joan Jett, Journey, Foreigner, Bon Jovi, Night Ranger, REO Speedwagon, Pat Benatar, Twisted Sister, Poison, Whitesnake, and more.
Overall it looks a fun film for the karaoke generation as probably majority of the film fans would either not have been born or too young to remember the songs first time round. but in a era when conservatism has reared its ugly head again, obnoxious nationalist trying to upset the fabric of society even more films like Rock Of Ages is perfect tonic for a couple of hours escapism. The film stars also Julianne Hough, Paul Giamatti, Diego Boneta, Alec Baldwin, Russell Brand, Malin Akerman, Bryan Cranston, Catherine Zeta-Jones, and Mary J. Blige film arriving June 15th.
