tagline: "the loudest silent movie on earth"
Movie ‘Gutterdämmerung’ – which touts itself as “the loudest silent movie on earth” and a “loud and dark fairytale” – has been unveiled in a star-studded new trailer.
The stark black and white trailer isn’t silent, but contains interviews with some of the numerous big-name rock stars it features. Iggy Pop stands out, playing a shirtless fallen angel. The official website describes the film as follows:
“The forthcoming loud and dark fairytale Gutterdämmerung is a new rock ‘n’ roll / film / gig concept from the mind of Belgian-Swedish visual artist Bjorn Tagemose. Gutterdämmerung is part rock show part immersive cinema experience featuring some of the biggest rock names on the planet including Grace Jones, Iggy Pop, Henry Rollins, Eagles Of Death Metal’s Jesse Hughes, Motörhead’s Lemmy, Tom Araya, Mark Lanegan, Volbeat, Queens of the Stone Age’s Joshua Homme, Justice, Nina Hagen and Slash.”
In their trailer interviews, Iggy Pop excitedly reports “this is so ambitious,” while Slash says “it definitely has a cool look to it. Henry Rollins adds “rock and roll always wins”, and Lemmy is typically direct, simply saying “if you don’t like it, fuck off.”
The film is scheduled for a special kind of cinematic experience, too (via the website):
“Much in the tradition of classic movies of 1920’s Hollywood, the film is mostly silent but instead of a lone piano a live rock band express the emotions and action whilst special effects from the film explode to life all around the audience. Think of a deafening rock ‘n’ roll version of Secret Cinema taking place in hell and you might just begin to have an idea of what Gutterdämmerung is. This spectacular film will tour with it’s live band and a live narrator early 2016.”
