I am very excited about the forthcoming release of the new Joy Division biopic, Control. The film marks the directorial debut of the former rock photographer Anton Corbijn and it portrays the life and times of troubled musical genius Ian Curtis. The film follows Michael Winterbottom’s 24 Hour Party People and will be followed later this year with a feature-length documentary directed by Grant Gee and written by Jon Savage.

The film is due to be released on October 05, but bits have been leaked on to the net already. You can see the trailer on YouTube; while the The Killers controversial cover of Shadowplay is available as a stream over at Prefix Media.
