Oh, yeah — ‘The Dirt’ tells the story of Motley Crue

Netflix examines the true story of Motley Crue in “The Dirt.” It begins streaming March 22, 2019.

Nothing exemplifies the ’80s more than a hard-rockin’ hair band. And atop that hair-sprayed heap stood Motley Crue.

With the tagline — “Their music made them famous. Their lives made them infamous.” — Netflix released the trailer for the biopic “The Dirt” today. It tells the true story of the debauchery that was the Crue. The movie premieres March 22.

The trailer touches on some of the band’s highlights and lowlights, including Vince Neil’s arrest for vehicular manslaughter, Tommy Lee’s marriage to actress Heather Locklear and the moment Nikki Sixx was revived after being declared legally dead following a heroin overdose, according to spin.com.




Oh, and there’s the music, too — “Home Sweet Home” and “Kickstart My Heart” back the 2 minutes, 14 seconds trailer.

“The Dirt” stars Iwan Rheon (“Game of Thrones,” “Misfits”) as Mick Mars, Douglas Booth (“Pride, Prejudice and Zombies,” “Noah”) as Sixx, rapper Machine Gun Kelly as Lee and Daniel Webber (“The Punisher,” “11.22.63”) as Neil.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
