The first trailer for Ang Lee’s new movie, Taking Woodstock, has been hit here.

Starring US comic Dimitri Martin, Emile Hirsch, Imelda Staunton, Liev Schreiber, and Eugene Levy, the film tells the tale of Elliot Tiber (Martin), who plays an unwittingly pivotal role in the history of the world’s most famous music festival.

Trying to save his family’s property, he offered the use of the place to the Woodstock organisers. Cue chaos, mud and musical magic.

The trailer debuted on US TV as part of Martin’s sketch show, but is now on the mighty Interwebs. Check it out and let me know what you think, I must be honest I’m a bit Lee fan AND the ever amazing Emile Hirsch stars alongside Liev ‘Sabretooth’ Schreiber dressed as a woman, Im there!
