Legendary CBGB club gets film - watch trailer

"CBGB" is an upcoming American historical film about the former New York punk and new wave music venue CBGB. A first trailer just popped online, you can view it below. The film follows the story of Hilly Kristal's New York club from its conceit as a venue for Country, Bluegrass and Blues (CBGB) to what it ultimately became: the birthplace of underground rock 'n roll and punk.

From the early 1980s until its later years, it would mainly become known for hardcore punk, with bands such as Agnostic Front, Murphy's Law, U.S. Chaos, Cro-Mags, Warzone, Gorilla Biscuits, Sick of It All, and Youth of Today becoming synonymous with the club.

The cast for this film is as follows:

  • Alan Rickman as Hilly Kristal
