The Runaways


Culver City, Calif. (June 1, 2010) – The year was 1975 and five teens haphazardly came together amidst a burgeoning glam-punk scene in Los Angeles. Guided by the eccentric manager-producer-promoter Kim Fowley (Michael Shannon, Oscar® nominee for Best Actor in a Supporting Role, Revolutionary Road, 2009), these young women banded together often amidst illicit and abusive circumstances to become the pop-punk phenomenon: The Runaways. The film based on the girl group explodes onto Blu-ray and DVD on July 20, 2010.

The ensemble was fronted by rock prodigy Joan Jett (Kristen Stewart, The Twilight Saga) and supported on lead vocals by Cherie Currie (Dakota Fanning, The Twilight Saga: New Moon and Eclipse), a platinum princess who exuded an innocent yet devilish attitude. The hard-rockin' goddess Lita Ford (Scout Taylor-Compton, Halloween II) on guitar and banging bombshell Sandy West (Stella Maeve, Transamerica) on drums rounded out these deviant divas and poised them to take on the man's world of rock n' roll, fully clad in leather and lace.

Rocking special features include commentary with Joan Jett, Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning as well as two featurettes, "Plugged In: Making the Film and The Runaways." The Blu-ray also features movieIQ™+sync with The Runaways Playlist. movieIQ®+sync allows users to access real time information on the cast, music, trivia and more while watching the movie via BD-Live™.

The Runaways will be available on Blu-ray for $34.95 SRP and the DVD for an SRP of $27.96.

Fans can enter the Facebook sweepstakes starting June 18, 2010 for a chance to win rocking prizes by proving they have what it takes to be the ultimate The Runaways groupie. Additional information regarding the upcoming release can also be found on The Runaways Twitter and MySpace pages.

Synopsis: Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning star as Joan Jett and Cherie Currie in the music-fueled coming of age story of the groundbreaking, all-girl rock band, THE RUNAWAYS. They fall under the Svengali-like influence of rock impresario Kim Fowley (Michael Shannon, Pearl Harbor), who turns the rebellious Southern California kids into a rock group with outrageous success. With its tough-chick image and raw talent, the band quickly earns a name for itself and so do its two leads: Joan is the band's pure rock n' roll heart, while Cherie, with her Bowie-Bardot looks, is the sex kitten.
