Rupert Grint is poised to cast a spell on audiences in the new poster for CBGB, which is exclusive to The Hollywood Reporter.
The Harry Potter alum plays The Dead Boys guitarist Cheetah Chrome in the film looking at New York’s punk scene and the famed club.
CBGB was owned by Hilly Kristal, who in the late 1970s strove to create a venue for country, bluegrass and blues music. But after those acts became hard to book, he shifted the club’s focus toward local groups. CBGB was frequented by The Dead Boys and also helped launched the careers of Patti Smith, Blondie, Talking Heads and the Ramones.

This is the third of five posters THR will debut this week. Earlier this month, we unveiled CBGB posters honoring Joey Ramone, Debbie Harry, Smith and Chrome’s bandmate Stiv Bators.
Randall Miller directed CBGB and co-wrote the script with Jody Savin. The film’s cast includes Ashley Greene, Johnny Galecki, Joel David Moore, Stana Katic and Taylor Hawkins.
Miller and Savin’s Unclaimed Freight Productions is producing, along with former senior vp at Warner/Chappell Music Brad Rosenberger and Kristal’s daughter, Lisa Kristal Burgman.
