And now, a sneak preview of a film I’m looking forward to seeing.
Updated March 8: And now, the official trailer of that film.
“The Runaways,” starring Kristen Stewart as Joan Jett and Dakota Fanning as Cherie Currie.
Premiering March 11 in Los Angeles, March 17 in New York, March 18 at SXSW in Austin, Texas, and who knows when — if at all — in our corner of Wisconsin.
I also wonder …
A) Whether my 15-year-old son and his friends will be interested in seeing this.
B) And if so, what they’ll think of it.
I promise to report back with their review.
In the meantime, enjoy this cover of the Runaways’ signature song, co-written by Jett and producer Kim Fowley. It was the first cut on the Runaways’ self-titled debut album in 1976.
“Cherry Bomb,” Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, from “Glorious Results of a Misspent Youth,” 1984. (The buy link is to a 2-CD package also featuring “Album,” their 1983 LP.)
