Published Oct 27, 2020In February, we learned that Pogues frontman Shane MacGowan would be explored in a new documentary from director Julien Temple and Johnny Depp. Now, the first trailer for the film has arrived.
Crock of Gold: A Few Rounds with Shane MacGowan arrives December 4 and will follow the Pogues leader's life and work up to his 60th birthday celebration.
As previously reported, the film will feature unseen archival footage from the band and MacGowan's family, in addition to animation from iconic illustrator Ralph Steadman. You can find the trailer and the film's incredibly detailed poster below.
"It's not the easiest thing to make a film about Shane MacGowan," director Temple previously said of Crock of Gold. "The nearest thing I can think of is one of those David Attenborough films. You set the camera traps. You wait and you wait, in the hope that one day the snow leopard will trigger them. Then when you do actually capture the unique force of Shane's personality, even for a moment onscreen, you realize it was all worthwhile."
