Ch-Ch-Ch-Ch Cherry Bomb ... Woah. Put on Some Clothes, Dakota

By Dustin Rowles | Trailers | December 17, 2009 | Comments ()


MTV has debuted the new teaser trailer for The Runaways, the tweenerish biopic about the somewhat iconic '70s girl band, which featured Joan Jett (Kirsten Stewart), Cherie Currie (Dakota Fanning) and Lita Ford (Scout Taylor-Compton).

I won't deny that, despite my initial skepticism with Fanning and Stewart playing punk rockers, that they most certainly look the part. I'm convinced, even, that Fanning will do the role justice. But I swear to God, if Kristen Stewart bites her goddamn bottom lip again, I'm going to hurl. I, at one time, actually thought she had some pretty decent talent, but I think I've seen everything she's been in over the last few years, and I can safely say that her acting ability is fairly limited to mumbling and biting her lower lip, which has served the role in nearly every picture she's made.

Joan Jett did not bite her lower lip. She might have bitten someone else's, but she wasn't mumbly emo pouty girl.

Also, the brief glimpse of Dakota Fanning's cleavage in this trailer -- not OK. Really not OK.

As for the movie -- it's hard to say from a 45-second clip. Looks sort of stereotypically biopic-y, to me.

Seriously. Not OK.
