The Runaways, the highly-buzzed Floria Sigismondi film about the story of an all-girl rock band, has received its first full length trailer. Kristen Stewart has the task of playing Joan Jett, while her co-star Dakota Fanning plays Cherie Currie. Michael Shannon (Revolutionary Road), Alia Shawkat (Whip It), and Tatum O'Neal make up some of the other supporting players.
I am particularly excited to see Stewart here. She is certainly an actress I am consistently keeping up-to-date with, and after her impressive turn in Adventureland, I can't wait to see what she has in store with this film, as well as Welcome to the Rileys (another Sundance entry). The film is set for a limited release on March 19th, with an expansion on April 9th. Watch the trailer, courtesy of Yahoo, below.
The second trailer Yahoo has debuted is the teaser for Zack Snyder's Legend of the Guardians, an animated adaptation of Kathryn Lasky's children's books. This film is certainly a departure from the ultra-violence of Snyder's Watchmen, but he's proven to be a very ambitious filmmaker, and anything with his name on it will peak my interest.
Some of the actors providing the voices include Abbie Cornish (Bright Star), Helen Mirren, Emilie de Ravin (Remember Me), and Geoffrey Rush.
Synder also has another project -- the fantasy/thriller Sucker Punch -- that is currently in post-production, and features a performance from Abbie Cornish.
Legend of the Guardians will be released on September 24th.
