CBGB Trailer: Alan Rickman Will Rock You

This trailer gives us next to no idea of how the film about New York's CBGB and the club's owner will play out. But we can confirm that Alan Rickman, playing proprietor Hilly Kristal, is doing an American accent and donning gloriously curly hair and flannels and overalls. There will be original music from the Talking Heads, Iggy Pop, Blondie, the Velvet Underground, and the Police, with actors like Rupert Grint, Malin Akerman, Johnny Galecki, and Justin Bartha impersonating all those bands and a handful more. Randall Miller (Nobel SonBottle Shock) directed the movie and wrote the script with Rickman in mind.
