And then one of the location (managers) starts going, "Guys there's a storm coming', and we're all looking up, but there's no clouds. We're like, 'Oh, it's fine'.
"Within five minutes, (there was) wind, rain, lightning, thunder, so we're all hiding underneath these tents. I look up and we're holding onto metal rods and I'm like, 'That's not a good idea'.

The first round of reviews for Rock Of Ages are in, and it looks as though it was only Tom Cruise and his co-stars were ready to rock as most critics have panned the musical-turned-film thus far.
Before its release this weekend, the film was expected to easily make up its $75 million budget, but the film is only expected to make just $15million reports the Daily Mail. The Broadway adaption, which boasts a huge cast including CATHERINE ZETA-JONE, Russell Brand, Paul Giamatti and ALEC BALWIN, along with Cruise and lead performances from Julianne Hough and Diego Boneta.

He convinces the owner (Baldwin) to hire her as a barmaid just as diva-rocker Stacee Jaxx (Cruise) comes to play a major gig. Buzzing around him are a Rolling Stone journalist (Akerman) wanting an interview and a right-winger (Zeta-Jones) trying to protect the children from the evils of rock-n-roll.

Despite the Chicago Tribune giving 'Rock of Ages' a thumbs-up last week, as the reviews start to trickle in, things aren't looking so rosy for the Tom Cruise led rock musical parody. Rock of Ages has been adapted from a stage musical and stars Russell Brand, Catherine Zeta Jones and Diego Boneta and, writing for the Tribune, Liz Smith was impressed with the comic musical, though she advised viewers to remember that it's all just for fun.
Justin Chang, writing for Variety, said that "Given the proliferation of high-school musicals and American idols on TV, the spectacle of aspiring young singers belting out an umpteenth cover of Journey offers little in the way of novelty value." Similarly, the Hollywood Reporter's review is damning, placing the blame squarely on the shoulders of director Adam Shankman. "Nobody gets clobbered in the New Line movie, but perhaps director Adam Shankman should," writes David Rooney. "He succeeds in draining most of the fun from a vehicle that was all about the winking humor of its flagrant cheesiness."
All may not yet be lost for Rock of Ages - and no doubt the all-star cast will be a big enough draw in itself - but with the heavyweight movie publications such as Variety coming out first to slate the movie, it certainly doesn't bode well.
Rock Of Ages star Diego Boneta is keen to get his full name back when the film takes off and he becomes a bigger star - because he wants to honour the grandfather he never knew.
The Mexican actor's birth name is Diego Gonzalez Boneta - and that's the moniker most of his Latino fans know him by.
But he was forced to drop Gonzalez thanks to a clerical error behind the scenes of his first American TV project.
He tells WENN, "When I booked my first job in American television, they thought Gonzalez was my middle name... so they went with Diego Boneta in the titles, and the name stuck from then on."

The star's fortunes have changed recently and he now leads the cast of the much-anticipated Rock of Ages musical, but Boneta reveals he feared he'd blown his big chance for a blockbuster role when he auditioned for a part in The Lion, The Witch & The Wardrobe.
He explains, "I was in the final decision, but they told me they couldn’t work it out because I was a minor at the time, and that would have limited my hours on the set under New Zealand Actors Guild rules."
But missing out on the possible role of a lifetime didn't deter the star - it was only his first audition: "I said, 'If this is the first experience, I certainly need to stay and try my luck'."

When Cruise discovered he and his castmate were both studying with the same expert, he proposed they jam together on set.
Boneta says, "Tom noticed we were sharing the same teacher and he approached me... I was so honoured!"
And the young star still can't believe he befriended Cruise on the set of his first movie: "He was definitely somebody I looked up to growing up. I told him it was my first movie and he took an interest in me. He gave me a lot of powerful advice during the filming. I could say he was mentoring me.

Tom Cruise stars in a new trailer for the much-anticipated Rock of Ages movie, giving it some serious rock action and belting out a version of Bon Jovi's 'Wanted Dead or Alive.' The rock comedy will inevitably draw similarities to the spook rockumentary of the 1980s, Spinal Tap but this modern take on the leather-clad world of heavy metal boasts an all-star cast, including Alec Baldwin, Catherine Zeta Jones and Russell Brand.
The extended trailer for the movie, which is due to be released in June 2012, features Tom Cruise playing the role of metal superstar Stacee Jaxx. In the film, Cruise tackles a number of classic rock hits, including 'I Hate Myself For Loving You' by Joan Jett and Foreigner's power ballad 'I Wanna Know What Love Is.' Catherine Zeta Jones plays the role of an anti-rock morality group leader, thought to be based on the 1980s anti-rock crusader Tipper Gore. Her character campaigns against the activities of The Bourbon Room, run by Alec Baldwin's character Dennis Dupree. His big idea to save the ailing club involved convincing the veteran rockers Arsenal to play their last ever gig there. Initial Twitter reaction to Cruise's singing has been mixed, with one user commenting, "Tom Cruise's singing in the 'Rock of Ages' trailer sounds like he's a drunk frat guy at karaoke who got kicked in the groin before starting", while another confirmed, "Tom Cruise does his own singing in Rock of Ages...just in case you were wondering".
