Bandslam In Theaters TODAY!

Bandslam In Theaters TODAY!

Vanessa Hudgens, Alyson Michalka and Gaelan Connell are hitting the big screen TODAY in Bandslam! caught up with the three stars recently and we’re giving you a sneak peek into one of our interviews. Check out what Vanessa, 20, dished:

JJJ: Sa5m is a very tortured soul, but your hair was perfect and your makeup was perfect; why did they keep your hair that way?

Vanessa Hudgens: If I would’ve had it my way, I would’ve done the Ally Sheedy in The Breakfast Club – just the craziness all over the place – but hey, it’s okay. It’s one step closer to something.

JJJ: Were you sad you never got to go to CBGB?

Vanessa: I was sad! We got to build our own set and it was the exact replica of CBGB. Even though it was fake, I still felt the history. That was the closest, I think, a lot of people my age are gonna get to CBGB! I felt pretty special.

JJJ: How was the kissing scene with Gaelan?

Vanessa: It was awesome! I love it – I think it’s hysterical. We rehearsed it several times because it’s extremely choreographed and all about the right timing. But it was funny; it was fun.

JJJ: When you see pictures like this (Vanessa and Gaelan kissing) what do you think about it?

Vanessa: I go “noooooo, they got it before you got to see it in the movie!” I don’t kiss Gaelan on my own time. But yeah, it sucks when people get to see things when it’s not finished because I feel it ruins the end result, but whatever. There’s not much you can do about it.

Stay tuned for the rest of our interview with Vanessa, Aly and Gaelan and go see Bandslam!

    bandslam reviews

    Vanessa Hudgens proved to be an extraordinary actress and singer.

  • Honest

    I have to wait til monday to see it, but if you’ve already seen it for free, I think you should go see it in theaters just to support vanessa.

  • HMM

    Nice interview, look forward to the rest of it. Guess I’m not seeing Bandslam until tomorrow cause our theatre doesn’t have it today. That’s what happens when you live it a smaller town. : (

  • Honest

    Also, for reviews just google it and you’ll see the great reviews. I think it’s above 80% on rotten tomatoes. Give the movie a chance, people.

  • ant00nija

    some of reviews…

    “Bandslam might have all those familiar ingredients, but it’s not another high school musical of any sort. This is a coming-of-age movie set against a ferocious battle-of-the-bands competition.”

    Bandslam consistently exceeds current teen-flick standards thanks to its snarky humour, its strong musical sequences and its ability to convey the excitement the characters feel both about performing and forming new friendships.”

    “If the boisterous bunch of teens who sat around me in the theater is any indication, Bandslam could be the sleeper hit of the summer. Playful music, accompanied by unexpected and satisfying plot turns are a few of the film’s plusses.”

  • Tiptoes

    Watching it later!

    Awesome reviews so far.

  • Tiptoes

  • birdie

    Cute interview, I’m going to see it today. I really love the whole cast,
    and the reviews are great.

  • Jess!


    Hudgens and Michalka, as the two ladies in his life, do a great job, however, “and Hudgens in particular shows that she is destined for bigger things… she’s probably one of the most promising young actresses in Hollywood at the moment and thankfully enhances those credentials by allowing Michalka to do most of the singing.”

    I´m so proud of her!!!!!!!!!! ♥

  • heat.
