Watch The Stooges documentary ‘Gimme Danger’ Trailer

September 29, 2016

Gimme Danger is an forthcoming documentary film about The Stooges (directed by Jim Jim Jarmusch (Broken FlowersOnly Lovers Left Alive) and the first trailer has been released!


The documentary premiered at the Cannes Film Festival in May and chronicles the band’s timeline, while also looking at how their frontman Iggy Pop influenced music.

The official synopsis teases: “Emerging from Ann Arbor, Michigan amidst a countercultural revolution, The Stooges’ powerful and aggressive style of rock-n-roll blew a crater in the musical landscape of the late 1960s. Assaulting audiences with a blend of rock, blues, R&B, and free jazz, the band planted the seeds for what would be called punk and alternative rock in the decades that followed.”

“Jim Jarmusch’s new film Gimme Danger chronicles the story of The Stooges, one of the greatest rock-n-roll bands of all time. Gimme Danger presents the context of the Stooges emergence musically, culturally, politically, historically, and relates their adventures and misadventures while charting their inspirations and the reasons behind their initial commercial challenges, as well as their long-lasting legacy.”


Gimme Danger opens in select US theatres next month. Nothing announced for Canadian theatres.
