Tom Cruise rocks out at London premiere

London - Tom Cruise is rocking London with the European premiere of his new film Rock of Ages, a tribute to the big-haired, big-riffing glam metal sound of the 1980s.

Cruise, who plays a tattooed - and frequently shirtless - rock star, was joined on the red carpet in London's Leicester Square on Sunday by fellow stars Julianne Hough, Russell Brand, Paul Giamatti and Mary J Blige.

Based on the musical hit, the movie tells the story of small town girl Sherrie (Hough) and city boy Drew (Diego Boneta) who share a dream of reaching dizzying heights in Hollywood. Their glittery romance is set to a rock and roll soundtrack that includes hits from Def Leppard, Foreigner, Bon Jovi, and Poison.

Rock of Ages is being released in the US and the UK on 15 June and in South Africa on 6 July.
