Rock of Ages Film Trailer Review

Before we even had movies, people were already going into theaters for theatrical plays and musicals. Musicals are one of the first forms of public and even sophisticated form of entertainment. There have been and still are, a slew of various Broadway and theatrical play artists that have entered Hollywood (Bollywood, etc.), and this is probably why the entertainment industry came up with the musical film genre. To cater to the same musical loving film audience.

Rock of Ages is another musical film based on a similarly entitled and popular broadway musical. Hollywood has this of attitude of taking something that works and making it into film and in a way that worked well up to this day. The plot is vaguely hinted on the trailer and it is how it should be. For the plot, acting and production value are the main and only factors that makes musical films successful. This musical film trailer somehow put a smile on my face as I watched it and I am not even into musicals so that itself is a testimony that this trailer works. Nostalgia and rock music plays a major role in the marketability of this title, and this is why I am fearlessly predicting that this would be an entertaining film.
