The dynamic teaser includes footage of the outfit throughout the years, alongside present day interviews with Pop band members, Scott Asheton (drums), Ron Asheton (guitar), James Williamson (guitar), and their former manager Danny Fields.

The film - which premiered at the Cannes Film Festival - is set for selected U.S cinemas on 28 October, but is yet to be given a UK release date.

Meanwhile, a series of nude drawings of Iggy Pop have been turned into a book and art exhibition.

Earlier this year, The Stooges frontman posed for for British artist Jeremy Deller's life drawing class at New York's Academy Of Arts, with a total of 21 artists drawing capturing his image.

The collection will now feature in an exhibition called Iggy Pop Life Class, which runs at New York's Brooklyn Museum from 4 November 2016-26 March 2017. 

A book of the same name - priced at £18.75 -  will also be available from Heni publishers from 20 October this year.
