I have been seeing, reading and hearing about Rainn Wilson's upcoming movie The Rocker for quite some time, but actually just saw the trailer for the first time this week. This movie will obviously be extremely silly, but it will be a travesty not to check it out...at least at the matinee price.
Speaking of the Rocker, the word on the street, according to Variety, is that Paramount and Jack Black are gearing up for their next tour, with the School of Rock 2: America Rocks. Black will reprise his role as Dewey Finn, a down and out rocker posing as a school teacher in order to achieve rock god-dom, but this time taking his students, err, band, on a cross country tour.
And while we're on the subject of rock on the big screen, Harmonix and MTV Games have unveiled the setlist for Rock Band 2 this week. Some of the highlights include:
AC/DC - Let There Be Rock
Dinosaur Jr. - Feel The Pain
Guns N' Roses - Shackler's Revenge (from the "upcoming" Chinese Democracy album)
Mastodon - Colony of Birchmen
Motorhead - Ace of Spades
Sonic Youth - Teenage Riot
Talking Heads - Psycho Killer
The Replacements - Alex Chilton
