'CBGB' Trailer: '50,000 Bands and 1 Disgusting Bathroom'

When the little hole in the wall that once housed acts like The Talking Heads, Blondie, The Ramones, The Police and Iggy Pop among others ends up getting shut down over some random rent dispute with the owner threatening to steal the urinals, yeah, there's a story there alright.

CBGB* — which stood for "Country, BlueGrass and Blues" in the beginning, though its palette of musicians didn't quite follow suit — might be a thing of the past now that its owner let the business slip into financial disrepair, but it remains legendary within the '70s and '80s rock scene (long hair, guys wearing makeup, big attitudes and all). As this first trailer Randall Miller's "CBGB" (via The Hollywood Reporter) shows, while the film indeed pays proper homage to the many, many impressive acts seen at the famed New York City club, it centers on the man behind the musical moxie, Hilly Kristal (Alan Rickman), and his many financial and familial woes.

Taylor Hawkins has a lust for life.

The Foo Fighters drummer is preparing to get shirtless (a lot) as he signs on for the role of legendary punk rocker Iggy Pop in "CBGB," according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Alan Rickman will always be Professor Severus Snape to us, but he's about to take on the guise of another, more modern legend. You might not have heard of Hilly Kristal, but surely you have heard of the club he started and owned until it closed in 2006, CBGB.

The legendary East Village institution kick started punk rock and became a second home to local artists like Patti Smith, Television, Suicide, the Ramones, and Blondie; later years gave rise to hardcore acts like Bad Brains and, yes, the Beastie Boys.
