‘CBGB’ Posters Make Their Ways on Line


Another new poster for the upcoming rockumentary about famed New York rock club, CBGB has made it to the web. This time, instead of the whole cast of characters on it, but little by little specific character posters have been making it online. On Thursday it was actress Malin Ackerman taking on Blondie frontwoman Debbie Harry and now Joel David Moore’s take on Joey Ramone.

The film, titled CBGB examines the New York punk scene and how a night club launched the career of many of punk’s most influential bands including Blondie, The Ramones, Iggy Pop, The Talking Heads and many more. Hilly Kristal (played by Alan Rickman) was the original owner of the venue which was supposed to be a club for country and bluegrass artists. When it became difficult to book those types of artist, they decided to shift their attention to local musicians and bam, an iconic place was born.

Aside from Rickman and Ackerman, the cast also includes: Ashley Greene, Johnny Galecki,  Stana Katic, Rupert Grint and Foo Fighters’ drummer, Taylor Hawkins.
