Tom Cruise, Julianne Hough and Russell Brand in the Rock of Ages trailer
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
For those of you that were eagerly anticipating the big screen adaptation of the Broadway musical ROCK OF AGES, today we have for you the first trailer for the ensemble musical. The trailer gives us a bit of everything, but is really light on the Tom Cruise. It almost feels as if they’re saving him for some big surprise. But it’s heavy on Alec Baldwin and Catherine Zeta-Jones dialogue and 80’s rock ballads. If you were on the fence with this one, I’m not sure the trailer is going to do anything to push you to one side or the other. I think we’re going to need a full musical number for that.
The film has an all-star cast that includes Tom Cruise, Russell Brand, Alec Baldwin, Julianne Hough, Diego Boneta, Paul Giamatti, Malin Akerman, Mary J. Blige, Catherine Zeta-jones and Bryan Cranston. ROCK OF AGES is directed by Adam Shankman.
