I can’t say that I’m a HUGE fan of musicals, never was. But after seeing my city front-and-center in the new Rock of Ages trailer, I realize I might have to change my mind!
Tom Cruise takes the stage as lead character Stacee Jaxx (which was filmed at the Seminole Hard Rock Casino in Hollywood, FL) with co-stars Julianne Hough and Diego Boneta (check out our interview with Diego here) who star as Drew and Sherrie, two young people chasing their dreams in the big city.
When they meet, it’s love at first sight, though their romance will face a series of challenges. The film also stars Russell Brand, Alec Baldwin, Malin Ackerman, Catherine Zeta-Jones, and Paul Giamatti.
The trailer proves how amazing director Adam Shankman was in the creation of this film. Many parts of the Miami/Fort Lauderdale area stand-in for 1987 Los Angeles!
Rock of Ages is set to hit theaters on June 1st, 2012.
