Tom Cruise rocks in Rock of Ages trailer
The second trailer for Rock of Ages was released recently featuring Tom Cruise as rocker Stacee Jaxx belting out a version of Bon Jovi's Wanted Dead or Alive.
Based on the hit Broadway musical about the late 1980s glam rock scene, the tale follows a small town girl with big dreams who falls for a rock star. The film version is adapted by the director Adam Shankman (Hairspray).
The all-star cast includes Russell Brand (Get Me To the Greek), Alec Baldwin (It's Complicated), Catherine Zeta-Jones (The Legend of Zorro), Paul Giamatti (The Hangover), Julianne Hough (Footloose) and singer Mary J. Blige.
The footage shows a fast-cut series of excerpts following the wild rock music scene behind the scenes, highlight Baldwin's humor as a club impresario, Giamatti as a crazed manager, Cruise as a narcissistic rock star with a monkey, and Zeta-Jones as an anti-rock crusader.
The musical soundtrack in this 2:30 minutes includes classic hits of the era including Journey's Any Way You Want It, Joan Jett's I Love Rock and Roll, Pat Benatar's Hit Me With Your Best Shot, David Lee Roth's Just Like Paradise and more.
Rock of Ages debuts June 1 in Hong Kong, followed on June 13-15 in France, Australia, the UK and European markets and North America. It continues rolling out through August, hitting Japan in September.
