When I first saw the trailer for this movie, I have to admit I was excited. First, there's all the great 80's pop/rock music from Journey, Pat Benatar, and Night Ranger. But even more exciting to me as a filmmaker was knowing that this was all being directed by HAIRSPRAY helmer Adam Shankman. The musical adaptation of the John Waters classic was one of my favorite movie musicals in a long time and I dragged a number of friends to see it in the theatre. I went 3 times that summer!
Now, a new clip from ROCK OF AGES has surfaced featuring Mary J. Blige giving her own spin to "Any Way You Want It". Forget Tom Cruise singing...I can't wait to see more Mary J.!
