A new music video for the upcoming film The Runaways has been released today, continuing the promotion of this aggressively sexy movie about children (teenagers) singing aggressively sexual songs to throngs of adults. It’s a true story, so it’s okay. In fact, that was one of the overwhelming thoughts that I took away from screening this movie at Sundance. Sure, it’s a movie that challenges you not to be sexually charged by a group of young girls. But wasn’t that also the point of the rock group upon which it’s based.
Anyway, there’s a new music video that mixed footage from the film with the track “Cherry Bomb,” as recorded by Dakota Fanning. It’s a fast-moving video, so keep a close eye. But not too close, friends, Chris Hansen is always watching.
The Runaways is in theaters April 9, 2010.
