A trailer has been released for Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong’s upcoming movie Ordinary World.

The comedy – named after a track on Green Day’s upcoming 12th album Revolution Radio – marks Armstrong’s debut lead film role and tells the tale of Perry Miller, an ageing former punk rocker settling into suburban life.

It was originally called Geezer and premiered at at Tribeca Film Festival earlier this year, before the change of name.

The trailer for Ordinary World can be viewed below.

Singer and guitarist Armstrong has previous acting experience, having starred in Nurse Jackie, Like Sunday, Like Rain and also making a cameo appearance in This Is 40. He also appeared in the Green Day-based Broadway musical American Idiot.

A synopsis of Ordinary World reads: “The mid-life crisis of a husband and father who, on his 40th birthday, he seeks to revisit his former life as the lead singer in a popular punk band though his middle-aged reality quickly – and hilariously – clashes with the indulgences of his youth.”

Green Day this month released a video for their new track Bang Bang, taken from Revolution Radio – which launches on October 7 via Reprise Records.

Green Day head out on tour later this month in support of Revolution Radio, with dates planned across north America and Europe.
