Watch The First Trailer for '60s Science Fiction Musical Bang Bang Baby

Bang Bang Baby is the forthcoming 1960s science fiction musical headlined by Jane Levy, star of Suburgatory and last year's Evil Dead reboot.


Here's the synopsis from Up and Comers:

Levy plays Stepphy, a teenager living in the 1960s suburbia who has big dreams of becoming a famous singer. When her favorite rockstar (Justin Chatwin) gets stranded in her town, she thinks it's her big break and her big shot at romance. However, an accident at the town's chemical plant makes everyone go screaming and running for their lives instead – while singing and dancing a diddly or two. Wholly original, indeed.

The musical is slated to premier at the Toronto International Film Festival on September 8th.

Any time "1960s" is used today as an adjective it almost always means trouble. It's usually some young hipster who wasn't there thinking he can somehow capture the essence of that extraordinary time. It usually comes out all wrong. It wasn't all just sex, drugs and rock 'n roll in dayglow bellbottoms. It was sex, drugs and rock 'n roll in dayglow bellbottoms while believing we were changing the world for the better. That's way different.
