It's The Third 'Rock Of Ages' Trailer, In All Stacee Jaxx's Gloryby: Posted:
"That Stacee Jaxx...he gives until it hurts," exclaims a stringy-haired Alec Baldwin in the third official "Rock of Ages" trailer to recently hit the internet.
Damn if that doesn't also sum up your standard Tom Cruise performance.
We can all say what we will about the Chicklet-toothed loon when the cameras stop rolling. But when someone yells "Action!" and he does what he does, you must simply sit back and appreciate. He disappears into roles. Playing an arena-rock god with stage presence that showers over an audience? No different from donning a skull cap and fat suit in "Tropic Thunder" or becoming a vampire too unsettling for you to actually say to his face, "Dude, that shirt looks gay."
The adaptation of the hit jukebox musical casts Diego Boneta and Julianne Hough respectively as Drew and Sherrie - just a city boy who meets a small-town girl livin' in a lonely world. OK, winking at Journey aside, the pair meet up in a club on the Sunset Strip that's in jeopardy when a local activist played by Catherine Zeta Jones wants the Strip's drinking and debauchery cleaned up and swept out of L.A. - just not before she and her squeeky-clean crusaders co-opt some rock and roll of their own for sweet renditions of "Hit Me With Your Best Shot" and "We're Not Gonna Take It".
Face it: this looks like fun. It's endless, non-stop, sing-along, flick-the-Bic fun. And it hits theaters June 15.
