UPDATE: The trailer was released late Tuesday and has been added to the story below.
The first glimpse of the upcoming Netflix Mötley Crüe biopic, The Dirt (March 22), was released on Monday (Feb. 18) and it promises to pull back the spandex curtain on many of the notoriously wild hair metal band’s biggest triumphs and tragedies.
The teaser opens with the phrase, “Their music made them famous… their lives made them infamous.” The lipstick and mascara-wearing rockers strut towards the camera over a wicked electric guitar slide riff, with all four wrapped in leather and bad attitude.
Rapper Machine Gun Kelly swaggers as drummer Tommy Lee, next to Daniel Webber (The Punisher) as singer Vince Neil, Douglas Booth (Pride and Prejudice and Zombies) as bassist Nikki Sixx and Iwan Rheon (Game of Thrones) as guitarist Mick Mars. The film was directed by Jackass director/producer Jeff Tremaine.
The quick-hit preview runs through a peek at the band’s pyro-fueled stage show, Neil hoisting his daughter in a swimming pool and the infamous car crash in which he killed Hanoi Rocks drummer Razzle Dingley, Lee’s wedding to Pamela Anderson, Sixx’s near death overdose experience and hints of plenty of other mayhem.
The clip ends with the ominous warning, “Win it all or lose it all, we are Mötley Crüe.” The first official trailer is slated to drop on Tuesday (Feb. 19).
