It’s time to choke to death on 85 cans of hairspray, tune your air guitar and turn the volume up to 11. Here’s the extended trailer for Rock Of Ages, based on the hit musical of the same name. With an impressive cast that includes Alec Baldwin, Julianne Hough, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Russell Brand (of course), Mary J Blige, Paul Giamatti and uh, Tom Cruise, the camp factor hitting stratospheric levels and Hairspray’s Adam Shankman behind the camera, this looks like it could be an absolutely blast.
It’s the story of small-town girl Sherrie Christian (Julianne Hough), who arrives in Los Angeles looking to be a star. But she’s got eyes for both a young bartender Drew (Diego Boneta) and parading rock cliche Stacee Jaxx (Tom Cruise).
A familiar story to be sure, but hopefully its star quality, glorious 80s hair rock and OTT sensibilities will give us something to bob our heads to.
It’ll be out on June 15th.
