A chintzy dud that trashes its subject. Alan Rickman shambles around as Hilly Kristal, the owner of the Bowery dive-turned-legendary punk club Cbgb. Too much of the film is devoted to Kristal’s deadbeat style. It’s fun to see actors like Rupert Grint as Cheetah Chrome (he’s excellent); less fun is Malin Akerman as Debbie Harry (she’s way off). Cbgb makes a hash of chronology and never hints at the exciting danger this club possessed. C- —Owen Gleiberman

Entertaining kitsch. The mood is
Grint discussed with Vulture the surreality of filming the scene where his character, Cheetah Chrome of the band Dead Boys, first meets club owner Hilly Kristal (Rickman).
"I was kind of getting flashbacks," said Grint, referring to the time the two spent playing their Hogwarts alter egos. Despite the strange deja vu, Grint said Rickman "completely transformed" into Kristal. He continued:
I was surprised when I saw him. He was just completely in that zone, as he was when he was Snape, when he was quite intimidating. And yeah, when I was doing that first scene,
Legends like Iggy Pop, Joan Jett, Patti Smith, the Ramones, and Blondie's Debbie Harry first made their name at the club which opened in 1973 and closed in 2006, only to be replaced by a high-end fashion store. In Randall Miller's ("Bottle Shock") "Cbgb," the venue and its many icons are brought to the big screen for the first time. Alan Rickman portrays Cbgb founder Hilly Kristal, Rupert Grint plays Cheetah Chrome, guitarist of The Dead Boys, Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins plays Iggy Pop, and Joel David Moore ("Avatar") portrays Joey Ramone.
In this exclusive new (Nsfw) clip from the film,
The Harry Potter star plays punk musician Cheetah Chrome in Cbgb, and will also portray a gangster in the West End play Mojo.
In an interview with USA Today, Grint said that his recent roles have not been an attempt to disassociate himself from the Harry Potter franchise.
"It's not really that I am trying to shock people or make a big statement," he said. "It's just part of moving on."
Grint went on to admit that he is intimidated to be working in the West End in Mojo.
"This is a completely new thing, a whole new level," the actor declared. "It does scare me. That's kind of a reason why I want to do it."
Cbgb is expected to debut on October 11 in the Us. Further release details have not yet been announced.
Rickman leads as Hilly Kristal, the man who opened Cbgb, despite shaky finances, in 1973. Other stars are on hand to portray various icons too, and most of them show up in this trailer. There’s Rupert Grint as Cheetah Chrome of The Dead Boys, Taylor Hawkins as Iggy Pop, Malin Ackerman as Debbie Harry of Blondie, and Joel David Moore as Joey Ramone.
The new trailer offers a look at Alan Rickman as the late Hilly Kristal, owner of Cbgb and booster of groundbreaking punk and new-wave bands like the Ramones, Blondie, and Patti Smith. In this first teaser, Kristal and his crew struggle to get the club off the ground, with Ashley Greene playing Lisa, Kristal's daughter (the real-life Lisa, now known as Lisa Kristal Burgman, is a co-producer), and Donal Logue showing up as Kristal's security dude Merv Ferguson.
We do get a little peek at the actors playing the famed musicians who rocked out at Cbgb. Malin Akerman appears briefly as Blondie, but two stars with some decent face time are Rupert Grint, who
