The black and white feature is described as a “loud and dark fairytale” and “the loudest silent movie on earth.”
The new star-studded trailer for the film also features Henry Rollins, Queens of the Stone Age’s Josh Homme, Volbeat, Slayer‘s Tom Araya and Eagles Of Death Metal’s Jesse Hughes. Many of the stars in the film are interviewed in the trailer including Iggy Pop, who calls the film “ambitious,” and Lemmy who dead pans “if you don’t like it, f–k off.” Slash adds the film “definitely has a cool look to it.”
The official website for the film describes it as a “rock ‘n’ roll / film / gig concept from the mind of Belgian-Swedish visual artist Bjorn Tagemose.” The synopsis continues: “Gutterdämmerung is part rock show part immersive cinema experience featuring some of the biggest rock names on the planet.”
When its released theaters the film will follow the tradition of classic movies from 1920’s Hollywood. In lieu of a lone piano supplying the score, a live band will play along with the film with a live narrator.
Gutterdämmerung will open in theaters sometime in 2016. Check out the tweet and some official Instagram shots from the film below.
