Stars Julianne Hough, Diego Boneta, Malin Akerman and director Adam Shankman are on hand to answer a 30-minute Q&A following the movie, but not before they introduced a brand-new clip from “Rock of Ages” for our viewing pleasure. So feast your eyes on the beginning of Hough and Boneta’s rousing take on Foreigner’s “Jukebox Hero.”
Clearly some sparks are flying between Hough’s Sherrie Christian and Boneta’s Drew Boley as they search for the right vinyl to buy in a record store. Sherrie’s eyes light up when Drew admits that he wants to be the next Stacee Jaxx, though we’re not sure how Stacee Jaxx feels about that goal. That admission prompts the duo to jump into a stirring, head-banging interpretation of “Jukebox Hero.”
Though it’s only a brief tease — they don’t even get to the chorus! — we know from the track list for the soundtrack that this song is actually a medley with Russell Brand and Alec Baldwin’s take on “I Love Rock ’n’ Roll.” Now that’s something we’re dying to see.
We’re expecting lots of “Rock of Ages” references during the 2012 MTV Movie Awards, what with Brand hosting . The Brit is known for his tendency to go off the wall while hosting MTV awards shows, so we’re hoping he pulls the same sort of stunts during the Movie Awards.
