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…

What about you – do you like The Runaways full trailer?
