Tom Cruise Is Wanted Dead Or Alive In The New ‘Rock Of Ages’ Trailer
  |  @   |  

Warner Bros. has released a second full-length trailer for their upcoming musical film, Rock Of Ages, based on the Broadway show.

Watch the trailer here below.

In Rock Of Ages, a “small town girl” named Sherrie (Julianne Hough) meets a city boy named Drew (Diego Boneta) on the Sunset Strip where both of them are pursuing their Hollywood dreams. Sherri works as a waitress at the The Bourbon Room, while Drew work there as a busboy, though both are hoping for their “big break.” Alec Baldwin stars as Dennis Dupree, the owner of The Bourbon Room, with Russell Brand as the manager of the Hollywood club (he also narrates the story). Catherine Zeta-Jones plays the mayor’s wife, who wants to shut down the club because it promotes a sex, drugs, and rock n roll lifestyle. Tom Cruise is a hair metal rock star named Stacee Jaxx and in the trailer we get a glimpse of his onstage persona taking on Bon Jovi’s “Wanted Dead or Alive.”

Like the Broadway musical, the story, which takes place in the year 1987, is told through big rock numbers from bands like Def Leppard, Joan Jett, Journey, Foreigner, Bon Jovi, Night Ranger, REO Speedwagon, Pat Benatar, Twisted Sister, Poison, and Whitesnake. Now, I see a roster of rock like that and I think, “I’m in!” But then I see how the songs are arranged and performed in this movie and I’m thinking I’m going to wait til the DVD. Living in NYC, I’ve seen many Broadway shows and often love the music, including for the Rock Of Ages show, especially since it’s performed live by very well-trained casts. When I hear the way the songs are in this trailer, I feel like I’m watching Glee or American Idol, which just isn’t my thing. The thing about rock is that it ROCKS and to me the Rock Of Ages movie just doesn’t seem like it’s gonna rock. Just sayin. I could be wrong (doubt it). I am curious, though, to see Cruise in this role.

Rock Of Ages opens in theaters on June 15, 2012.
