Rocking out with Tom Cruise?

Rock Of Ages, based on a "smash hit" Broadway musical. Yep, I've never heard of it either. The promotion of the film has just started with a poster and trailer.

After watching the trailer I do think that this will be a "cult film". In the same way that Plan 9 from Outer Space is! The story shown in the trailer is hackneyed, cliched and looking like a high budget episode of something like Glee... Not only that it stars Alec Baldwin and Tom Cruise looking like they have had all their acting ability surgically removed suffering through their dreadful dialogue. But that's just me and you can make up your own mind by hitting play on the trailer below.

Under the direction of Adam Shankman (“Hairspray”), New Line Cinema’s feature film adaptation of the smash hit Broadway musical “Rock of Ages” comes to the big screen.
“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.

The movie musical stars Julianne Hough (“Burlesque”), with actor/singer Diego Boneta in his feature film debut, Russell Brand (“Arthur,” “Get Him to the Greek”), Oscar® nominee Paul Giamatti (“Cinderella Man”), Academy Award® winner Catherine Zeta-Jones (“Chicago”), Malin Akerman (“The Proposal”), R&B queen Mary J. Blige and multiple Emmy®-winner Bryan Cranston (TV’s “Breaking Bad,” “The Lincoln Lawyer”), with Oscar® nominees Alec Baldwin (“The Cooler”) and Tom Cruise (“Born on the Fourth of July”).
Rock Of Ages is released June 8, 2012
