Yesterday, Netflix released a short teaser for its upcoming Mötley Crüe biopic, The Dirt. In just two and a half minutes, it crams in numerous familiar beats of the saga, including Nikki Sixx's near-fatal heroin overdose, the auto crash that killed Hanoi Rock drummer Nicholas "Razzle" Dingley and sent Vince Neil to jail, Tommy Lee's tumultuous marriage to Heather Locklear and Mick Mars' battle with the bone disease ankylosing spondylitis. The glut is no doubt thanks to the success of such films as 2015's Straight Outta Compton, which made $160 million in the United States; 2017's All Eyez on Me, the hit Tupac Shakur tale; and I Can Only Imagine, the surprise-smash story of Bart Millard, frontman of the Christian-music act MercyMe. "The Dirt is an unflinching and uncensored story about sex, drugs, rock 'n roll, fame, and the high price of excess". The Dirt is scheduled to premiere on Netflix on 22 March.
