The Runaways full trailer has appeared online and unlike the teaser trailer it better details the story of how Joan Jett (Kristen Stewart) and Cherie Currie (Dakota Fanning) catapulted to the heights of rock stardom.

If you’re a fan of either Stewart, Fanning, or  The Runaways as a band, then I think you’ll be fairly happy with what you see in this full-length trailer.

Before we get to The Runaways trailer though, here’s a synopsis of the film for the uninitiated:

The Runaways follows two friends, Joan Jett (Kristen Stewart) and Cherie Currie (Dakota Fanning), as they rise from rebellious Southern California kids to rock stars of the now legendary group that paved the way for future generations of girl bands. With its tough-chick image and raw talent, the band quickly earns a name for itself-and so do its two leads: Joan is the band’s pure rock’ n’ roll heart, while Cherie, with her Bowie-Bardot looks, is the sex kitten. Based on  Currie’s book Neon Angel.

And now here’s the The Runaways full-length trailer, courtesy of Yahoo Movies:

Is it me or does it always seem like Stewart and Fanning are about one second away from making out? Speaking of Fanning – man is that girl sprouting fast! Yikes!

Personally I’m not a big fan of biopics and certainly not rock biopics and absolutely not chick-flick rock biopics. Nothing sexist there or anything… It just isn’t the type of material that makes me want to pay movie ticket prices. I’ll wait for that fateful Saturday night when it premieres on HBO and then I’ll be sure to watch it…

  1. you can already watch this online

  2. I think this will flop big time…not enough here for a “theater” movie. The actresses look a little young for those roles as well and KS always seems out of breath when delivering lines lol. Nothing interesting FOR ME in this but that's just me.

  3. fyi, thats the age The Runaways were when they started the band.

  4. Is it me or does it always seem like Stewart and Fanning are about one second away from making out?

    No. But the water gun… oh nevermind.

  5. I think it looks OK at most. I'll probably wait for it to appear on STARZ or HBO.

  6. I'm sorry is Dakota Fanning wearing a corset with a garter belt and heels? So much for Cat in the Hat.

  7. IS it just me or did anyone notice that the add that came on after the trailer was for a home pregnancy test? Is that their demographic, girls who like pop metal & the men who like them?

    This will only be interesting if they delve into the friction between Joan Jett and Lita Ford (Kiss Me Deadly). Somehow I doubt that will be portrayed well in this movie considering Joan was on set during the shooting and Lita Ford has not sued the producers.

  8. I can't wait to see this! The full length trailer is great! I am looking forward to it. I like the music and don't know much about their backstory.

  9. I'm excited to see this film. I was surprised to see a trailer for it on this site though. Doesn't seem to fit the overall theme. I love the Runaways and Joan Jett. It will be interesting to see how Kirsten Stewart does in the role. I've seen Kirsten in a few interviews recently and they are painful to watch.

  10. I can't wait for this. I normally hate any biopic kind of movie but this seems so interesting and it has a lot of rising stars, it'll be interesting to see them in it.

  11. It does, and there is a makeout session in the movie. I bet that was awkward.

  12. She's such a horrible puplic speaker, , it's just kinda funny that she's kinda hollywood's it girl right ow. Everyone wants to know about her life just because she plays Bella Swan.

  13. I feel like some kind wierdo pervert for thinking Dakota Fanning and Kristen Stewart are pretty girls…….
