Rock out to the first trailer for “The Runaways”

You saw the pictures, now see them move. The teaser trailer for The Runaways was released today and it certainly doesn’t bomb — cherry or otherwise.

Our first glimpses of Kristen Stewart as Joan Jett and Dakota Fanning as Cherie Currie are a blur of big guitar riffs and bigger bad ass attitudes. I know it’s only rock ‘n roll, but I like it.

While the clip doesn’t give us much in terms of plot or dialogue, it sure sets the scene. And in case there were any lingering doubts, Kristen and Dakota look almost frighteningly their parts.

Have I mentioned Dakota is only 15 years old? I think that makes the bustier/garter belt ensemble she is wearing illegal in several states.

Actually, for all the hype Kristen receives as Bella, I think Joan Jett may be her perfect role. It lets her employ that signature pout. Plus, she gets to smash stuff. Playing a chaste sparkly vampire’s girlfriend has to build up the frustration.

Now the only question remains, are you ready to rock?
