Banger FilmsThe official trailer for the new Alice Cooper documentary, Super Duper Alice Cooper, has premiered on YouTube and at AliceCooper.com. The movie, which will open in theaters this spring, follows the shock rocker's story, from his childhood as the son of a preacher to his transformation into one of rock's most outlandish frontmen to his struggles with alcohol abuse during the 1970s and his reemergence as a clean-and-sober elder rock statesman.
The clip features a variety of archival concert clips and photos, with voice-overs by Cooper and some of the members of his original band. In one segment, Alice reflects on how the group was perceived following an infamous 1969 incident at a concert that involved the demise of a live chicken. "Here comes this half-girl, half-guy, half-alien band that killed chickens," he notes. "All of a sudden we were the most notorious band on the planet."
Super Duper Alice Cooper is the latest movie from Banger Films, the Canadian production company that also brought us Rush: Beyond the Lighted Stage, Metal: A Headbanger's Journey and the Metal Evolution TV miniseries.
