The Runaways teaser trailer online
The Runaways has a teaser trailer online, and it's the first step for Kristen Stewart stepping away from her Twilight role and becoming known for something else, so it's fitting and clever that she's managed to bag playing the real life character of Joan Jett in the biographical film of the famous girl rock group.
It also marks a big role for Dakota Fanning too, playing Cherie Currie, another member of the teenage band that became a sensation.
The film comes from Floria Sigismond who wrote and directed the biographical film which, rather than concentrate on an individual member, looks at the band, something different to the musical biographical films we've been seeing lately.
Unfortunately I can't see the film because I live in the UK, a place where MTV and the studio don't want audience members from. They put the trailer on their site and then restrict access (I can watch their adverts) and when I go to the MTV UK pages, no film content. So I'm flying blind.
First Showing tell me that the trailer is a good one. Intense and gritty is a phrase they use, so why don't you have a look and tell me what it's like, if you can see it that is.
The blurb tells us:
In 1970s LA, a tough teenager named Joan Jett (Kristen Stewart) connects with an eccentric producer to form the all-girl band The Runaways that would launch her career and eventually make rock history.
Indeed they do. Here's the trailer, if you can see it.
