'CBGB' trailer: NYC club comes back to life -- VIDEO

CBGB, Randall Miller’s star-studded tale of the famous New York club, has been leaking slowly into our consciousness for a while. Starting with casting news, then a slow trickle of posters and images, the anticipation has been building — and although the visuals are all well and good, a movie about famous musicians and their favorite venue needs some sound!

Finally, we are treated to the first trailer — a bunch of famous people playing other famous people in the dirty, dangerous, legendary club. The spot features music by Talking Heads, Blondie, The Ramones, Dead Boys, The Police, Iggy Pop, and Patti Smith Group, (portrayed by the likes of Malin Akerman, Rupert Grint, Joel David Moore, Mickey Sumner, and more).

• From Harry Potter to punk rock? Rupert Grint is set to star in two upcoming films. In CBGB, he’ll play rocker Cheetah Chrome opposite Alan Rickman as legendary club owner Hilly Kristal. Will taking direction from a gritty club owner be much different than from Professor Snape?
