The true story of the NYC rock club that spawned such acts as the Ramones, Talking Heads and Blondie stars Alan Rickman as its colorful founder Hilly Kristal. CBGB also features a large ensemble that includes Donal Logue, Ashley Greene, Johnny Galecki and Bradley Whitford. The film crams in more than 60 songs and a dozen on-camera performances including Malin Ackerman as Deborah Harry, Rupert Grint and Justin Bartha as the Dead Boys’ Cheetah Chrome and Stiv Bators and Foo Fighters’ Taylor Hawkins as Iggy Pop. “These kids have something to say,” Kristal tells a TV news crew. “We really should listen.” And how. Director Randall Miller’s historical drama opens in the fall. Here’s the trailer:
