As you can above, the first still from the upcoming live-action Jem and the Holograms movie is here, albeit in a rather blurry form. That’s because a micro version of the image debuted in the pages of the latest issue of Elle Magazine and the above scan was subsequently enlarged by the good people at io9.
Technically, we got our first look at the Jon M. Chu film last April when Universal Pictures and Blumhouse Productions released a teaser poster featuring the four main leads (Aubrey Peeples as Jem, Stefanie Scott as Kimber, Hayley Kiyoko as Aja and Aurora Perrineau as Shana). This new version, however, appears to be our very first production still and we’ll update this story with a higher-quality version as soon as one becomes available.
Created by Christy Marx, the original “Jem and the Holograms” series was a joint collaboration from Hasbro, Marvel and Sunbow Productions. It began airing in 1985 and ran for three seasons, following the adventures of the titular Jem, the musical superstar alter ego of a young woman named Jerrica Benton who, with the help of a holographic computer called Synergy, is able to clandestinely perform rock concerts with her friends.
Also starring Ryan Guzman, Juliette Lewis and Molly Ringwald, Jem and the Holograms is set to hit the big screen on October 23, 2015.
