The trailer for the Mötley Crüe flick dropped late last week and it’s a wild ride from start to finish. Based on the collaborative autobiography by Neil Strauss and Nikki Sixx entitled The Dirt: Confessions of the World’s Most Notorious Rock Band tells the story of how Mötley Crüe became one of the most successful and scandalous rock ‘n roll groups in history. Directed by Jeff Tremaine, the trailer shows us a group of misfits “…a runaway, a kid drummer, an old man, a cover band singer..” coming together to make something special.
As they begin to get more popular, the idea of giving people their money’s worth came up, they wanted to give people a real show. Who doesn’t like a little anarchy every now and then, right? Mötley Crüe quickly became the poster children for controversy. Drugs, alcohol, outrageous clothing. You name it, Mötley Crüe probably did it. Including manslaughter. No exaggeration. The band’s manger Doc McGhee (David Costabile) reflected on the madness in the trailer “I’ve managed The Scorpions, Bon Jovi, Skid Row, Kiss… but I have never been through what Mötley Crüe put me through…”
And who will be responsible for bringing this crew to the big screen? Rapper Machine Gun Kelly will play drummer Tommy Lee, Iwan Rheon as guitarist Mick Mars, Douglas Booth as bassist Nikki Sixx and Daniel Webber as frontman Vince Neil. The cast will also feature Pete Davidson, Christian Gehring and Tony Cavalero. Personally, I’m excited. Mötley Crüe isn’t my favorite band in the world but I did read the The Dirt back in high school so I have a good idea of the madness that’s in store for this movie. Get a glimpse of the chaos in the offical trailer below!
The misfits of Mötley Crüe rise from the streets of Hollywood to the heights of international fame in the 1980s.
The Dirt will be available on Netflix March 22nd!
