Apparition has unveiled a brand new poster for their upcoming “The Runaways
” film, starring Kristen Stewart
and Dakota Fanning.
“The Runaways” synopsis: Kristen Stewart
and Dakota Fanning
star in this music-fueled story of the ground-breaking, all girl, teenage rock band of the 1970s: The Runaways. The film follows two friends, Joan Jett and Cherie Currie, 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. Joan and Cherie fall under the Svengali-like influence of rock impresario Kim Fowley, played by Michael Shannon
, who turns the group into an outrageous success and a family of misfits. 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.
Written and directed by Floria Sigismondi
, Italian filmmaker
who is making her feature debut with this after directing numerous music videos (The Very Best of Sheryl Crow: The Videos, Best of Bowie) and a short film called “Postmortem Bliss,” the film chronicles Joan and Cherie’s tumultuous relationship on and off stage, as the band starts to break out.

The film has its world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival
on January 24th.
“The Runaways”will be released in theaters on March 19, 2010.
