Netflix's highly-anticipated Mötley Crüe biopic The Dirt is finally out today, and in case the big-name actors involved aren't enough to get you on board, then just wait till you see the trailer.
A pyromaniac hedonist's fever dream, The Dirt is based off of the band's 2001 memoir of the same name. Starring Machine Gun Kelly as drummer Tommy Lee, Worried About the Boy's Douglas Booth as bassist Nikki Sixx, Game of Thrones' Iwan Rheon as guitarist Mick Mars, The Punisher's David Webber as vocalist Vince Neil, and Pete Davidson as a Shaggy-looking record exec named Tom Zutaut, get prepared for a lot of drama coupled with white leather, hairspray, and every bodily fluid imaginable – all accompanied by a hefty dose of pure unhinged chaos energy, of course.
After all, anyone familiar with the actual Mötley Crüe's story should be well aware of the band's legendary antics from trashing hotel rooms up and down the Sunset Strip to parties with mud-wrestling strippers to putting copious amounts of [redacted] substances up their noses, including that one infamous time Black Sabbath's Ozzy Osbourne snorted a bunch of red ants and his own piss.
Even though there will inevitably be some old-school rockists who take issue with the film's perceived "factual inaccuracies," fans can be assured that The Dirt will be a pretty accurate retelling of the band's glory days, encompassing everything from the good to the bad to the ugly. But how do we know that? Because it's a story that comes straight from the horse's mouth, seeing as how the film is based on Neil Strauss' book of the same name, and it was written in tandem with Mötley Crüe themselves, of course.
Watch the official trailer, below.
