The 'Jem And The Holograms' Trailer Is Finally Here, But How Outrageous Is It?

Truly Outrageous?

While the original cult '80s cartoon series was campy, kitschy, and fun, it's now clear (thanks to Buzzfeed) that "Jem And The Holograms" will be an emotional, far more realistic film adaptation. Not super outrageous, TBH.

Still, it's not like there isn't any glitter. There's plenty of glitter. Observe!

On Tuesday (May 12), when the trailer finally dropped, we got our first real glimpse at Aubrey Peeples as Jerrica Benton, aka Jem, just a regular girl who's quickly thrust into superstardom as lead singer of The Holograms.

The film changes the original premise of the series slighty; Jem's bandmates are actually her sisters, and they embark upon a wild (and musical) journey through Los Angeles to find a secret message left by their father. The film also stars Molly Ringwald, Juliette Lewis, and Ryan Guzman.

So, what do you think? Is the trailer everything we'd hoped it would be?

"Jem And The Holograms" opens October 23.
