Trailer Watch: Jim Jarmusch’s The Stooges Documentary Gimme Danger
“Iggy and The Stooges reinvented music as we know it,” says Danny Fields, former Stooges manager, in the trailer for Jim Jarmusch’s documentary about the band (above).
Relying on archival clips, interviews, and animation, the film traces the hard rocking history of the proto-punk band from its inception in late ’60s Michigan through the ups and downs of stardom (and drug addiction). Gimme Danger had its world premiere in the Midnight Screenings section at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival before screening at The Toronto International Film Festival and The New York Film Festival. The film is scheduled to be released on October 28, 2016, by Amazon Studios and Magnolia Pictures.
