It’s a good time for rock and roll biopics. Bohemian Rhapsody winning a Golden Globe award and receiving an Oscar nomination for Queen. Now, a Motley Crue movie The Dirt is coming to Netflix March 22.
Iconic 80s rockers Mötley Crüe were almost as famous for their extravagant, excess-fueled lifestyle as they were for hits such as “Dr. Feelgood,” “Girls, Girls, Girls” and “Shout At The Devil” and in 2001, a book called The Dirt was published, chronicling the quartet’s shocking stories from years of non-stop touring and trashing hotel rooms. Written by the band themselves alongside Neil Strauss, The Dirt went on to become a bestseller and one of the most revealing autobiographies ever to see the light of day
Netflix have now confirmed that The Dirt will premiere on March 22 across the globe and a full-length trailer has also been released. Giving a brief introduction to the band and its four members for those uninitiated in the ways of Crüe, the trailer establishes The Dirt‘s central narrative of four talented musical misfits who form a band and seek greatness but are presented with a number of obstacles along the way. As one would expect, the trailer’s soundtrack is comprised heavily of Mötley Crüe tunes and the film itself will feature 14 classic songs, along with four new numbers.
