Watch the trailer for London Town!
Without question, The Clash is one of the most influential bands in music history. Led by the charismatic Joe Strummer, the band burst onto the scene is the late ’70s and became seminal figures in the punk rock movement. And in the trailer for “London Town,” Jonathan Rhys Meyers channels Strummer in a coming-of-age tale centered on a young teen’s introduction to The Clash.
Daniel Huttlestone plays Shay, a quiet teen who meets a slightly confrontational girl, played by Nell Williams, on a train when he asks what music she’s listening to. Of course, she’s listening to The Clash, and from that point on, the young boy’s life is forever changed. Shay soon dyes his hair, wears cooler clothes, and as luck would have it, gets the chance to meet his idol, Strummer.
The film features music from different bands of the era including The Buzzcocks, The Stranglers, Toots and the Maytals, Willie Williams, Stiff Little Fingers, and of course, the Clash. “London Town” will be released in theaters and VOD on October 7th.
