See The New Trailer for the Mötley Crüe biopic, ‘The Dirt’ (Video)
Netflix has just dropped the trailer for the Mötley Crüe biopic The Dirt, and it’s a crazy ride.
“I had managed the Scorpions, Bon Jovi, Skid Row, Kiss,” says Breaking Bad actor David Costabile’s Doc McGee says in the trailer. “But I had never been through what Mötley Crüe put me through.”
The clip is a first look at Machine Gun Kelly as Tommy Lee, strutting in the kitchen wearing his sister’s pants and telling her how much better they look on him. It also offers a glimpse of the car crash that killed Hanoi Rocks drummer Nicholas “Razzle” Dingley and sent Vince Neil to jail, Lee’s marital problems with Dynasty actress Heather Locklear, Mick Mars’ battle with the bone disease ankylosing spondylitis, and Nikki Sixx’s near-fatal heroin overdose.
The movie showcases the band’s rise to prominence in the ’80s, and all of the debauchery covered in the book. The soundtrack will feature 14 tracks, including four new songs.
The film stars Colson Baker (aka Machine Gun Kelly) as Tommy Lee, Douglas Booth as Nikki Sixx, Daniel Webber as Vince Neil. and Iwan Rheon as Mick Mars. The film also features SNL’s Pete Davidson as record executive Tom Zutaut, Christian Gehring (Modern Family) as David Lee Roth, and Rebekah Graf (Entourage) as Heather Locklear.
The Dirt debuts March 22 on Netflix.
