Apparition has debuted trailer for The Runaways starring Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning.
Floria Sigismondi – directed music biopic revolves around Joan Jett (Stewart), the lead character in the movie and Cheri Currie (Fanning) and follow them from the formation of the Runaways in 1975 all the way to the end of their career as a group – from the band’s meteoric rise as teenagers to their dissolution and disillusionment.
The band was brought together in late 1975 by impresario Kim Fowley (Michael Shannon), who thought a novelty act of teenaged girls performing in leather and lace would be an easy sell, but the girls ended up proving to be serious and influential musicians with songs like “Cherry Bomb.”
The band lasted about four years together, falling apart over management and money issues.
Sigismondi also wrote the screenplay for the movie which also stars Scout Taylor-Compton, Stella Maeve and Alessandra Torresani.
The Runaways, premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, hits theaters on March 19th, 2010.
