New Rock of Ages trailer shows off the music
A new trailer for the musical Rock of Ages has arrived and it makes a feature out of the music of the film but without forgetting the ensemble cast and some of the key characters, especially not forgetting Tom Cruise performing Wanted Dead or Alive.
This trailer is a winner, especially if you're around my age. Running through some of those songs I was hooked, Dave Lee Roth Paradise? A wry smile appeared, but the cast and some of the small moments from the film are what wins me over here, and I'm dying to see Cruise playing the tortured rock god.
Here's a quick blurb for Rock of Ages:
Rock of Ages is the film adapted from the stage musical that tells the story of small town girl Sherrie and city boy Drew, who meet on the Sunset Strip while pursuing their Hollywood dreams. Their story 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, and the film features talent such as Tom Cruise, Alec Baldwin, Paul Giamatti, Catherine Zeta-Jones and many more including the talents of Mary J. Blige.
The music will certainly win over a demographic, but will the film seep out to a younger age range? Looking at this I think it just might.
