Last December we got our first look at the first movie trailer for the big screen adaptation of the Broadway musical show Rock of Ages. As you may recall, I wasn’t too keen on that first trailer … mainly because I still have some issues with some of the casting (Russell Brand, ugh). Today we get to see the newly released second trailer for the filma and, I gotta admit, my feelings about the film have softened a bit. This second trailer actually makes me want to see this movie after all.
I don’t know if it’s my insane love for the original Broadway production OR if it’s my loyal and unyielding love of the 80’s music soundtrack but … I am starting to get excited about this film. I love the story and I really love the use of 80’s music to tell the story. I’ve seen the musical quite a few times (the last time I saw the show it featured my good friend Tom Lenk and one of my fave Broadway actresses of all time Kerry Butler) and I think I’m ready to see and enjoy the story again. Honestly, I don’t think the movie will surpass the musical for me but … ugh, I’m willing to give it a shot. I’m MOSTLY sold on seeing this film … I suppose.
