If you haven’t visited the official website for The Runaways movie recently, GO NOW. I’ll wait. 🙂
The site has been redesigned, and it is full of WIN. They’ve added:
- Links for the new Twitter, MySpace, and YouTube pages
- A link to soundtrack info (which I won’t click on until after I see the movie).
- Downloadable wallpapers and chat icons.
- New production stills.
- Video clips of the real Runaways
- Bio pages for each cast member, including one for Joan as executive producer. (The only bad part of the site is that they spelled Scout Taylor-Compton’s name wrong. I hope they fix that soon!)
But the best part is that Dakota Fanning’s version of “Cherry Bomb” plays on a continuous loop on the site. (You can mute the audio on the page if you don’t want to listen to it for two hours straight like I have. :))
Back in December, Cherie Currie herself confirmed, on this blog, that Dakota Fanning sang “Cherry Bomb” in the movie, without any enhancements from Cherie’s voice. After hearing the whole track, there should now be no doubt. While Dakota’s voice captures Cherie Currie’s attitude and power perfectly, it definitely has its own tone that is distinguishable from Cherie. I LOVE IT.
I think I’ve said this before, but as a long-time Runaways fan, I feel so…honored by all of this.
