Trailer for Scorsese and Jagger's HBO Series on the Music Industry of the Past 'Smashes You Over the Head'
Following the release of a teaser trailer in August, HBO has unveiled a longer, debauchery-filled look at Martin Scorcese and Mick Jagger's upcoming music industry series Vinyl. Starring Bobby Cannavale as Richie, an amped-up record label president in the early 1970s, the series will debut some time in January. In the trailer, Cannavale gives a locker room-style pep talk about the power of rock ’n’ roll (“It’s fast, it’s dirty, it smashes you over the head!”) as The Stooges’ “I Wanna Be Your Dog” churns in the background.
As you’d expect, the trailer is chock full of sex, drugs (so much coke!) and rock ’n’ roll. Plus, there's plenty of shady deal-making, guns and even an appearance by an Andy Warhol character.
Vinyl also stars Olivia Wilde as Richie’s wife, along with Ray Romano, Juno Temple, Andrew Dice Clay, Ato Essandoh, Max Casella, Jack Quaid, Brigitte Hjorth Sorensen and James Jagger (Mick’s son). Watch the trailer:
