Last week we brought you some high quality photos from the rock biopic The Runaways, as well as a never before seen clip from the movie. Now, a teaser poster has just been released and in honor of the group’s biggest hit, it’s a cherry bomb. The film is scheduled to hit theaters on March 19th and stars Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning. Here’s the explosive teaser poster…
The Runaways were one of the greatest punk bands to come out of the 1970s Los Angeles music scene. Not only was their music legendary, but they were one of the only successful female groups in the male dominated genre. Their music was off the charts and so was their lifestyle. The film focuses on the duo of guitarist/vocalist Joan Jett and lead vocalist Cherie Currie as they deal with fame, drugs, and abuse all before their 18th birthdays.
The film is currently playing at this year’s Sundance Film Festival before making its general debut in March. It’s directed by Floria Sigismondi and co-stars the talented Michael Shannon as the band’s possessive manager. The movie has been getting a lot of attention because of its adult subject matter and young stars, more specifically Fanning.
Here’s the teaser poster, which features the che-che-che-che-che-che-che-cherry bomb.
