Badass Grindhouse Teaser Poster for 'The Runaways' Biopic
Apparition has debuted the new teaser poster for Floria Sigismondi's The Runaways, the Joan Jett biopic starring Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning. MTV revealed the faded, vintage teaser poster with flares of a grindhouse / exploitation style, fitting considering the band hit big in the 70s. And if you don't get what's going on in this, that's one big cherry bomb, which is a play on their very popular song "Cherry Bomb." It's a great poster for a movie we're hoping is great as well. After its debut at Sundance on Sunday, we'll find out whether it really is or not. We also featured the teaser trailer back in December. Check out the poster below!
In 1970s LA, a tough teenager named Joan Jett (Kristen Stewart) connects with an eccentric producer to form the all-girl band The Runaways that would launch her career and eventually make rock history.
The Runaways is written and directed by Italian filmmaker Floria Sigismondi, who is making her feature debut with this after directing numerous music videos and a short film called Postmortem Bliss. This was just bought by Apparition for US distribution following its debut at the Sundance Film Festival next year. Apparition is planning on bringing The Runaways to theaters starting on March 19th, 2010 this year.
The cherry bomb image is pretty cool but the stenciled title seems a little forced. Should've just been free-hand tagging to give it a more rebellious image rather than a "Fight Club"-ish tone.
