The trailer is now online:

In theaters March 19. I suppose I'll watch it; I'll try to keep an open mind, but these things so rarely turn out well...

Meanwhile, time to dig that legendary first Runaways album out of the archives for a few spins on the turntable. It's a great, great record - hopefully the movie will at least give it a renewed life and exposure to a new generation of kids. Here's the original clip for their first single, the still-stunning-after-all-these-years "Cherry Bomb":

  1. Hm. Interesting that Curie should be made out to be the one who started the band with Jett, not exactly true according to our old friend Wikipedia... and where the hell's Lita Ford. Ah well, Hollywood has to do its thing, I suppose...

    And yes, the original Cherry Bomb clip flat-out rawks.
