For you Weird Al Yankovic fans out there, the trailer for his upcoming movie is now out!

The film, titled Weird: The Al Yankovic Story, features Daniel Radcliffe (who is most famously known for his role as Harry Potter in the Harry Potter movies) playing Weird Al himself. The film also features actress Evan Rachel Wood playing pop star Madonna. The film is being directed by Eric Appel, with Appel and Yankovic both being accredited as writers for the film.

Per Variety, the movie is billed as a “untold true story,” covering the artist’s life and rise to fame, while also exploring his “torrid celebrity love affairs and famously depraved lifestyle.”

Sounds like a wild time! You can watch the trailer for Weird: The Al Yankovic Story below.

Are you excited for this movie? Of all the parodies that Yankovic has done, which one is your favorite? Personally, we are fans of his “Smells Like Nirvana” song (a parody based off the Nirvana song “Smells Like Teen Spirit”).

If he were to parody a metal song, what jam would you want him to poke fun at?

Weird: The Al Yankovic Story, will release on the platform Roku sometime in fall of 2022.

While we are talking about Weird Al though, check out this hilarious clip we happened to come across via Reddit.

The artist is also currently in the midst of a massive tour. This tour consists of, wait for it – 133-dates! The tour began on April 26th in Poughkeepsie, NY, and will end on October 29th in New York, NY. To learn more about the Ill-Advised Vanity Tour, you can check out Weird Al’s official website.

Speaking of movies about bands and artists, we wrote a feature sometime ago about what bands deserve to have a music biopic movie about them. You can check that out by clicking the link below.
