Watch K-Stew and Dakota Fanning Rock Out in 'Runaways' Trailer

Only a couple of days ago we brought you the first official image of Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning as Joan Jett and Cherie Currie in The Runaways, which is a biopic about the iconic all-girl teenage rock band that thrashed the stage and took the world by storm back in the '70s. The film will enjoy its world premiere next month at the Sundance Film Festival before arriving in theaters this March.

Those itching to see more should be stoked to learn that MTV just debuted the first teaser trailer for the film (watch it below). I say teaser because there's really not a whole lot of meat to this thing, save for quick shots of Stewart and Fanning rocking it out pretty hard. This is definitely a huge departure from Twilight, and I wouldn't expect to hear a bunch of hot-right-now bands on the soundtrack. This is real deal rock "n" roll, folks, and based on what we see here this looks to be a fairly dark, gritty and challenging look at the rise and fall of the band.
Here's hoping the thing rocks (pun intended). I'll definitely let you know the verdict when I catch it at Sundance next month. Until then, stay tuned for more images and clips in the coming weeks.
