BAD REPUTATION: Check Out The Poster And Trailer From The Upcoming Joan Jett Documentary!

BAD REPUTATION: Check Out The Poster And Trailer From The Upcoming Joan Jett Documentary!

Magnolia Pictures has unveiled the poster and trailer for BAD REPUTATION, which hits theaters, On Demand, on iTunes and on Amazon Prime Video September 28, 2018. On September 26th, there will be an advance one-night-only screening featuring exclusive footage that can only be seen in theaters nationwide!

The film features Joan Jett, songwriter/ producer Kenny Laguna, as well as a venerable list of icons from music, entertainment and beyond — including Billie Joe Armstrong, Miley Cyrus, Debbie Harry, Nikki Haley, Iggy Pop, Kristen Stewart, Pete Townhsend, and many more.

Synopsis: Joan Jett is so much more than “I Love Rock ’n’ Roll.” It’s true, she became mega-famous from the number-one hit, and that fame intensified with the music video’s endless play on MTV. But that staple of popularity can’t properly define a musician. Jett put her hard work in long before the fame, ripping it up onstage as the backbone of the hard-rock legends The Runaways, influencing many musicians—both her cohort of punk rockers and generations of younger bands—with her no-bullshit style. Bad Reputation gives you a wild ride as Jett and her close friends tell you how it really was in the burgeoning ’70s punk scene, and their interviews are laced with amazing archival footage. The theme is clear: even though people tried to define Jett and keep her stuck to one hit, she never compromised. She will kick your ass, and you’ll love her all the more for it.
