Watch: New 'Rock of Ages' Trailer Returns to the 1980s, Finds Ballads and a Monkey

Apr 03, 2012

Alec Baldwin takes off the suit (noooooo!), grows his hair out, and joins a musical movie adaptation with a massive ensemble cast that includes Tom Cruise, Paul Giamatti, and Catherine Zeta-Jones. We have the new Rock of Ages trailer for you, and it features a lot of Hairspray-esque shenanigans — which makes sense since Adam Shankman is directing and helmed the 2007 John Waters remake.

If you want to relive the musical stylings of Poison, Def Leppard, and Twisted Sister then you're in luck! The film features all the hair metal madness you can stand. Country singer and Dancing with the Stars champ Julianne Hough appears as a waitress who falls in love with a busboy (90210's Diego Boneta) during the 1980s. So far, the best idea this movie has is casting Bryan Cranston as the mayor of L.A. Beyond that, we're not sure. Tom Cruise as the lead singer in a hair band does sound pretty great, though.
