The first trailer for Gimme Danger, a documentary about Iggy and The Stooges is here.
As expected, it’s full of all the moral deviances you can think of when you think of the iconic band at its center. Between the vintage live clips and photos, the trailer shows interviews from former Stooges’ members Ron and Scott Asheton (drums and guitar, respectively), current guitarists James Williamson and Jim Osterberg (or as you probably know him, Iggy Pop).
The trailer is full of candid moments from Pop, featuring interviews where he outlines the communal mindset behind the band and how they shared everything, with statements like “We were real communists. We lived in a communal house, we shared all the money, and when we began to write songs, we shared authorship”.
Jim Jarmusch looks to have made a time capsule with Gimme Danger exemplifying one of the most influential and far-reaching bands in rock and roll. With a career spanning almost 50 years (and no sign of slowing), this trailer is sure to excite new and old Stooges fans alike.
Gimme Danger premiered at Festival de Cannes with a midnight showing and was met with positive reviews from critics. The film is scheduled for a limited release October 28, followed by a wider release November 4.
