Having just seen the stage version of the face-melting musical Rock of Agesthis past weekend, I can now personally say that I am eagerly anticipating Adam Shankman's big screen adaptation starring Tom Cruise, Alec Baldwin, Russell Brand, and the rest of its star-studded cast.

Earlier today, the director gave us our first look via tweetat Baldwin and Brand decked out in their bitchin' threads. Baldwin plays Dennis Dupree, owner of Hollywood's famous Bourbon Room (and the film's main setting). Brand plays Lonnie, Dupree's right hand man/club manager (and our narrator of sorts to the rock love story). Oh, and did I mention that they sing a duet of Reo Speedwagon's "Can't Fight This Feeling"? Because, yeah, that happens. If that's not enough to make you want to see this flick, then may the Gods of rock help you.

Check out the photo after the break.

The film also stars Diego Boneta, Julianne Hough, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Paul Giamatti, Malin Akerman, Bryan Cranston, and Mary J. Blige. Cruise will play hair metal God Stacee Jaxx, while Hough will play "small town girl livin' in a lonely world" Sherrie Christian who take the midnight train to LA where she meets Boneta's Drew Boley, a wannabe rocker who works at the Bourbon and falls for Sherrie.

ROCK OF AGES gets its release exactly one year from tomorrow, June 1st.
