Trailer #2: ‘Rock of Ages’ starring Julianne Hough, Russell Brand, Paul Giamatti, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Malin Ackerman, Alec Baldwin, Tom Cruise

Even though I really want to see this, I have to admit, the first trailer for Rock of Ages sucked. It was almost embarrassing how bad it was.

This new trailer though makes it look pretty damn good. Can’t wait to see this!

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.

Cast: Julianne Hough, Diego Boneta, Russell Brand, Paul Giamatti, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Malin Ackerman, Mary J. Blige, Bryan Cranston, Alec Baldwin, Tom Cruise
Writers: Justin Theroux, Chris D’Arienzo, Allan Loeb

    I don’t know about this one. Julianne Hough, Malin Akerman with big hair is a plus, the rest, I don’t know

    Another great idea ruined by Tom Cruise and corporate. This would have kicked ass if done right.

    Yeah, I’m still iffy on it… I’m usually all about having the original cast in the film versions but seriously, who would rush out to see Constantine Maourlis in this? I know he won the Tony, but still. They’re stacking it with big names. I just hope it doesn’t flop because that could mean no more musicals for a long time.
