If you still have Def Leppard’s Pyromania album on heavy rotation and prefer Jefferson Starship to Jefferson Airplane, then there’s a pretty good chance you’re excited for the upcoming musical adaptation, “Rock Of Ages.” An ode to the days of hair metal and tight leather pants, “Hairspray” helmer Adam Shankman has cooked up a tale of a small town girl (livin’ in a lonely world) and a city boy who fall for one another on the Sunset Strip, all while in pursuit of their Hollywood dreams. Some of us here at The Playlist have secretly been anticipating the film’s June release, and with a cast consisting of Russell Brand, Julianne Hough, Alec Baldwin, Malin Akerman, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Mary J. Blige, Bryan Cranston, Will Forte, and of course Tom Cruise doing his best Tim Cappelo interpretation, who can blame us?

Rock Of Ages Tom Cruise

If you still have Def Leppard’s Pyromania album on heavy rotation and prefer Jefferson Starship to Jefferson Airplane, then there’s a pretty good chance you’re excited for the upcoming musical adaptation, “Rock Of Ages.” An ode to the days of hair metal and tight leather pants, “Hairspray” helmer Adam Shankman has cooked up a tale of a small town girl (livin’ in a lonely world) and a city boy who fall for one another on the Sunset Strip, all while in pursuit of their Hollywood dreams. Some of us here at The Playlist have secretly been anticipating the film’s June release, and with a cast consisting of Russell Brand, Julianne Hough, Alec Baldwin, Malin Akerman, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Mary J. Blige, Bryan Cranston, Will Forte, and of course Tom Cruise doing his best Tim Cappelo interpretation, who can blame us?

A bunch of new images have hit the web ahead of the film’s mid-June release date stateside, and there’s plenty to look at for those who are hoping this film is an uproarious star-studded musical – these images certainly seem to point in that direction. There’s a scattering of pics featuring the city boy Drew played by newcomer Deigo Boneta with Julianne Hough as Sherrie, along with more Cruise, and most notably Giamatti going full-on sleazy ‘80s record producer. Brand pops up a few times rocking his ridiculous black wig, with Alec Baldwin looking to be hamming it up as club owner Dennis Dupree – yep, this will either be a blast or an interesting disaster.

If you just can’t get enough quite yet, don’t worry, because “Rock Of Ages” is just around the corner, arriving on June 15th. And you can enjoy Tom Cruise singing Def Leppard and Guns ‘N’ Roses when the soundtrack drops on June 5. [Kinopoisk]
