Rock of Ages is an upcoming American musical film. It’s a film adaptation of the 2006 comedy rock/jukebox Broadway musical of the same name. It stars country singer Julianne Hough and Diego Boneta with an ensemble cast including Tom Cruise, Russell Brand, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Paul Giamatti, Malin Åkerman, Bryan Cranston, with Alec Baldwin and Mary J. Blige. The film features the music of Bon Jovi, Guns N’ Roses, Def Leppard, Foreigner, Journey, Poison, Europe, and Twisted Sister, and was directed by Adam Shankman.
Set in 1987, the plot is one giant cliché and really is just an excuse to link numerous power ballads and rock songs from the 1980s into one show. In some ways it could be called Mamma Mia for soft rock aficianados.
Among the songs featured are: Hit Me With Your Best Shot, Jukebox Hero, I Love Rock ‘N’ Roll, Waiting for a Girl Like You, Wanted Dead or Alive, I Want to Know What Love Is, More than Words, Heaven Isn’t Too Far Away, I Wanna Rock, Pour Some Sugar on Me, Harden Your Heart, Anyway You Want It, Here I Go Again, I Can’t Fight This Feeling, Every Rose Has Its Thorn, We Built This City, Don’t Stop Believing.
Sounds like a fun night out.
