Director Jon M. Chu's film version of the '80s animated TV show follows Aubrey Peeples' Jerrica Benton, aka Jem, a foster child at home and a pink-haired rocker on stage. When her sister Kimber (Stefanie Scott) uploads a video of Jem singing to YouTube, it instantly goes viral and Jem and her bandmates Aja (Hayley Kiyoko) and Shana (Aurora Perrineau) get offered a record deal. The trailer lacks the signature camp from the original show and instead focuses on Jem's coming-of-age story as she navigates fame in the social media age.
The official Twitter account for the movie also revealed the first poster on Tuesday.
