Teaser Poster for THE RUNAWAYS Starring Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning

I loves me a subtle yet effective teaser poster and so I loves me this teaser poster for The Runaways (and I’ve heard good things about the film), which MTV debuted today.  The image is a literal take on the The Runaways’ hit single, “Cherry Bomb”, written by Joan Jett (played by Kristen Stewart) and Kim Fowley (Michael Shannon).  And since The Runaways were an all-girl rock band, that cherry is dripping for a reason: because it was recently washed and now safe to eat.  Or they did it as sexual innuendo.  I personally think they’re just trying to promote food safety.

Hit the jump to check out the full poster along with the officially synopsis.  We also have hi-res images, the teaser trailer, and a clip from the film all for your viewing pleasure.  The Runaways will debut at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, and hit theaters nationwide on March 19th.

For those just tuning in, here’s the official synopsis:

Of all the bands to come out of the 1970s Los Angeles music scene, The Runaways are by far the most uniquely fascinating. This is partially due to their music but more so to the fact that they were teenage girls whose wild and reckless lifestyle was the stuff of legend.

Focusing on the duo of guitarist/vocalist Joan Jett and lead vocalist Cherie Currie as they navigate a rocky road of touring and record-label woes, the film chronicles the band’s formation as well as their meteoric rise under the malevolent eye of an abusive manager.

Acclaimed video artist Floria Sigismondi directs from her own script, and her luscious camerawork captures every sweaty detail-from the filthy trailer where the women practice to the mosh pits of Tokyo. What really makes the film cook are the sizzling performances by Dakota Fanning and Kristen Stewart. Not to be missed, The Runaways is an ode to an era and a groundbreaking band.
