John M. Chu‘s Jem and the Holograms live action movie hits theaters this October and the first grainy, blurry, production still has hit the Internet. Where does this new image fall on the Outrageousness Scale?
Chu released that teaser poster above almost a year ago featuring the four leads, Aubrey Peeples as Jem, Stefanie Scott as Kimber, Hayley Kiyoko as Aja and Aurora Perrineau as Shana. Here’s a look at the blurry production still once again.
It’s a blown up version of the picture that appears in the latest Elle Magazine. I’m not really up on Jem lore, so besides recognizing that the costumes look Jem-ish, or right out of the early 80’s pop star fashion handbook, I can’t tell if this will just be a clone of the cartoons or something with a little more teeth to it like the recent Power Rangers fan film that made a big Internet splash.
I imagine I’ll be really drunk, or just have wandered into the wrong theater if I see this on the big screen, probably both. There are a lot of Jem fans out there though and this live action movie should do well at the box office.
Maybe you can convince me why I should see this on the big screen and not wait for it to hit Cinemax in the comments section below
