Ok, ok...we'll admit that we're slightly more than super amped to see the new biopic surrounding the rise of The Runaways, the iconic 70's gal rockers, led by the inimitables Joan Jett and Cherie Currie. We've strayed from reading any pre-opening reviews, cause frankly, we don't care what anyone has to say...we'll judge for ourselves. How punk rock of us!
The Runaways follows Jett and Currie as they rise from rebellious L.A. street kids to rock stars of the now legendary group that paved the way for future generations of girl bands. They fall under the guiding hand of rock impresario Kim Fowley, who turns the group into an outrageous success and a family of misfits. Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning lead the cast of talents in the flick.
The movie opens with a limited release next Friday, March 19, and nationwide on April 9; however, if you simply can't wait for all the riotous radness to explode, either watch the trailer here, OR enter for a chance to win a severely massive prize pack. We're giving away one of these beastly bundles and we're also a little bummed we can't win this.
Seriously, I'd want to get all in on this sweet prize action...but we're giving out the goods instead. Details on how to enter below what all you lucky son-of-a-gun will be getting.
Prize contents include:
The Runaways tshirt
