The first TV spot for The Runaways has been released, and while the general buzz out of Sundance was positive (our own Steve Weintraub gave it high marks), I wasn’t quite sold on Dakota Fanning playing the infamous “sex kitten” Cherie Currie. While the trailer doesn’t quite sell me on her role alongside Kristen Stewart (a great selection for Joan Jett), it does go a long way in showing how far Fanning has come from the constantly-screaming role in War of the Worlds. Where the trailer really succeeds is in the depiction of the dreary and volatile world The Runaways inhabited and the rock music they produced. They rocked and blazed a trail for other all-female groups. Oh, and the film is rated R and releases on March 19, 2010
