Rock of Ages


Release Date: 15 June, 2012 (In US)

Genre: Drama (With Tom Cruise and Julianne Hough)

Distributor: Warner Bros.

Haven’t you always wanted to hear Tom Cruise sing ”Pour Some Sugar on Me”? In the big-screen adaptation of the big-haired Broadway musical, Cruise plays a petulant mega-rocker named Stacee Jaxx circa 1987. The star impressively belts out period hits (including Bon Jovi’s ”Wanted Dead or Alive”) and sports a revealing wardrobe inspired by ’80s hair bands. ”I wasn’t going to ask Tom to go as far as he went,” says director Adam Shankman (Hairspray) of his 49-year-old star. ”We had these pictures of the guy from W.A.S.P. in a codpiece with sparks coming out of it. And it just made Tom laugh. At an age when people are starting to play junior senators, he’s in assless chaps.”

As new Hollywood transplants trying to break into the music industry, Julianne Hough (Footloose) and Diego Boneta (90210) also wear some memorable duds. ”I’d put on something and be like, ‘Oh my gosh, this is so gross — it’s perfect!”’ says Hough. ”There’s a purple bikini with lime green accents on it. I literally have nightmares about that bikini still.” At least her behind was covered.
