Rainn Wilson (The Office, Juno, The Last Mimzy) is in another mindless movie! In this one he plays an aging rocker who gets a second chance at stardom… in his nephew’s band!
The Rocker tells the story of a failed drummer who is given a second chance at fame. Robert “Fish” Fishman is the extremely dedicated and astoundingly passionate drummer for the eighties hair band Vesuvius, who is living the rock n’ roll dream until he is unceremoniously kicked out of the band. Twenty years after his rock star fantasies are destroyed, just when Fish has finally given up all hope, he hears that his nephew’s high school rock band A.D.D. is looking for a new drummer. They reluctantly make him the newest member of the band, giving him a chance to reclaim the rock God throne he’s always thought he deserved, and taking the young band along for the ride of their lives.
Looks… KIND of funny. The new poster actually makes me want to laugh a little:
I’ll probably go to see it, only because I can go for free… and so can you! If you live in the Boston, MA area, click on the picture below, print it out, and bring it to the Boston Common AMC on Tremont Street next Thursday, May 22, 2008 for a chance to see the movie. Each ticket is good for two people!
