After more than a year of anticipation and ongoing speculation, fans are finally getting a first look at rock biopic "CBGB". 

In the official movie trailer released on Wednesday, the star-studded cast takes on some of the most iconic artists in rock and roll with actor Alan Rickman leading the pack as Hilly Kristal - founder of the legendary New York music club, CBGB.

A majority of the film was shot in Savannah last summer at Meddin Studios and around downtown - most notably at the 112 W. Congress St. building where the iconic CBGB sign was displayed throughout filming.
