Thoughts: Based on the Broadway musical, Rock of Ages debuts its newest trailer that gives the viewer more plot details and lets us hear the stars belt out a few notes (some with the obvious help of AutoTune). The actual singers in the movie sound like a good fit and stars like Tom Cruise and Alec Baldwin appear to be able to carry a tune…but how far they can carry it is yet to be determined. The preview plays up the nostalgia of the hair-band era with aplomb and it generates the right amount of interest to get the audience to plunk down their summer cash. Director Adam Shankman did a solid job with Hairspray a few summers ago and he looks to have another crowd-pleasing winner on his hands.
