The deepest blues are black, as are the color of Dave Grohl’s eyes in the first trailer for Foo Fighters’ horror comedy Studio 666.
The band shot their first feature film during the pandemic and have now unveiled the first look, which you can see above.
It looks like Evil Dead if it was set at Sound City Studios (or Grohl’s own Studio 606), rather than in the backwoods of Tennessee.
Out February 25, the film stars members of the band – Grohl, Taylor Hawkins, Nate Mendel, Pat Smear, Chris Shiflett and Rami Jaffee, as well as the likes of Whitney Cummings, Leslie Grossman, Will Forte, Jenna Ortega and Jeff Garlin.
“Over the past decade we have had the good fortune to collaborate with FOO FIGHTERS on a variety of great projects,” said producers John Ramsay and James A. Rota. “Whether it be documentary films, TV series or music videos, they always bring their great talents and legendary sense of humor. ‘Studio 666’ takes this to a whole new level and we couldn’t be more proud of this movie. We can’t wait to share it with the world.”
It follows what happens to the stadium rockers as they rent an Encino mansion steeped in grisly rock and roll history, to record their 10th album. The trouble is, frontman Grohl is creatively blocked, and when evil forces in the house sink into his consciousness, the creative juices begin flowing but so does the blood. Can Foo Fighters’ complete the album, with the band still alive to tour?
Based on a story by Grohl, with script by Jeff Buhler and Rebecca Hughes, the film is directed by Hatchet III and Slayer: The Repentless Killogy director BJ McDonnell.
Open Road Films acquired worldwide rights and has set a wide theatrical release in 2,000 theaters.
