Music movie trailers

Here are some trailers for new movies about some of the greatest musicians ever.

The first is for the Bob Dylan film I'm Not There, while the trailer doesn't show much, the film sounds fascinating. It's a biopic following the enigmatic songster throughout his very strange and interesting life from his roots up to now. But maybe even more interesting is that it stars six different actors as Dylan! And not just as a case of a young actor playing a younger version of the man, this film has a really eclectic cast (including Cate Blanchett as Dylan), and I have a feeling could really go anywhere. On the wiki for the film, one of the producers talks about the style as poetic narrative reflecting Dylans musical work, and perhaps thats not surprising considering this film is coming from director Todd Haynes who also brought us the amazing glam-fest Velvet Goldmine. Check out this quick teaser trailer care of IGN.

The second trailer needs very little set up. It is a documentary film about The Rolling Stones, directed by Martin Scorsese, called Shine a Light, and it looks absolutely fantastic. Enjoy.
