Watch the first trailer for the new Weird Al Yankovic movie


The first full trailer for the upcoming movie, BIZARRE: The story of Al Yankovicis out.

Featuring Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe, the film explores the life and career of comedic musician “Weird Al” Yankovic (real name Alfred Matthew Yankovic), known for creating parody versions of world-famous hit songs.

In the trailer, Radcliffe sports a bushy wig and a small mustache, and co-stars alongside Evan Rachel Wood, who plays his “love interest,” Madonna (yes, the true pop legend, Madonna, well. that the couple never dated in real life).

There’s also copious amounts of booze, drug-fueled parties, plenty of “strange” behavior, bizarre performances, and even an unexpected makeup shoot with the aforementioned pop princess.

The film is a satirical and dramatized depiction of the 62-year-old musician’s life: unlike his character in the film, “Weird Al” has never used illegal drugs, nor particularly engaged in reckless rock star behavior.

Other actors set to appear in the film include Rainn Wilson, Toby Huss, Julianne Nicholson, and Quinta Brunson.

BIZARRE: The story of Al Yankovic will premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival on September 8 and air on The Roku Channel on November 4.
