Coolest trailer in a long time.

You know Anvil, right? The heavy band from Canada, the marginal act who have managed to stay around for years? Well, maybe, maybe not. But they are real, and they are a band. And they are Anvil. I am telling you this because many people who watch the following trailer remember This Is Spinal Tap very well. And so many people who watch the following trailer think that this is a mockumentary about a fake band. When Spinal Tap came out, people thought they were a real band and it was a real documentary. Apparently, it has been so successful at this that the impressions of movie-goers are now the exact opposite. Anyway, here's the trailer:

With Slash, and Lemmy, and Lars Ulrich, how could Anvil be fake? They are real, this is real, and it's coming to the Mayfair at the end of May - Friday Saturday and Sunday the 29th, 30th, and 31st. And speaking of the Mayfair - Cynical Cinema really recommends Ms. 45, coming to the theatre at 11:45 p.m. on Saturday May 9th. Check it out!


  1. Anvil RULES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! or is it Advil ?????

  2. Just curious as to where you got the info that Gov't Mule would be playing Bluesfest?? It says nothing about it on the Bluesfest website, and Gov't Mule has a tour booked in the states when bluesfest is supposed to be on..
    I'd love to see them live, but I don't think it'll happen this summer.
