Sundance 2010 – Trailer of the Week The Runaways

Joan Jett fans, rejoice! The first trailer for The Runaways, a biopic about the groundbreaking rocker grrl group starring Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning, has been released in time for the movie’s premiere at the Sundance Film Festival. And based on the teaser, the movie could potentially rock. Right off the bat we learn that rock music in the mid-’70s was an exclusive boys club: Runaways members Joan Jett (Stewart) and Cherie Currie (Fanning) are told they would be “lucky getting a gig singing in the shower.” But then the rocking (and scantily-clad onstage antics) really begins. We see Stewart — who nails Jett’s swagger — and the rest of the Runaways killing it with the band’s signature hit “Cherry Bomb,” while also living hard in the spotlight. The trailer ends with the very Behind the Music pronouncement that The Runaways could “tear this world apart.” Will they start a rock revolution at Sundance? Take a look. That is, if you’re not too square.

Be sure to check out trailers for Nowhere Boy and Frozen, also debuting at Sundance.
