You can bring home a brand new biopic of a famous all-girl band on DVD and Blu-ray next month. The Runaways will be released on DVD and Blu-ray on July 20. The standard DVD will be priced at $27.96 SRP while the Blu-ray will run for $34.95 SRP. We don't have any cover art images as of yet, but we'll update this story as soon as we have the images. The film stars Kristen Stewart, Dakota Fanning and Michael Shannon.
The film follows two friends, Joan Jett (Kristen Stewart) and Cherie Currie (Dakota Fanning), as they rise from rebellious Southern California kids to rock stars of the now legendary group that paved the way for future generations of girl bands. They fall under the Svengali-like influence of rock impresario Kim Fowley (Michael Shannon), who turns the group into an outrageous success and a family of misfits. With its tough-chick image and raw talent, the band quickly earns a name for itself and so do its two leads: Joan is the band's pure rock' n' roll heart, while Cherie, with her Bowie-Bardot looks, is the sex kitten.
