The international poster for Rock of Ages is out, and it’s pretty cool. It has kind of a “This is Spinal Tap meets The Filth and the Fury” feel to it — though Tom Cruise would have to go on a ten-day fast to rival Iggy Pop’s waifish frame.
Rock of Ages is the Adam Shankman-directed movie based on the Broadway musical. Set in 1987, it follows the journey of Drew (Diego Bonita) and Sherrie (Julianne Hough), two youngsters chasing their dreams in the big city.
The cast is brilliant: Bryan Cranston, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Malin Akerman, long-haired Alec Baldwin, Russell Brand, Paul Giamatti, Will Forte and Mary J. Blige for starters. Constantine Maroulis plays a record exec.
Tom Cruise must have had a blast playing rock star Stacee Jaxx. Like he was able to unleash every ounce of energy rolling around in his thetan body. I wonder how many sit-ups he had to do to get those abs. Look for Rock of Ages in theaters June 15, 2012.
