The premise? Guggenheim, who directed 2006's Academy Award winning An Inconvenient Truth, brought the three musical icons together to talk guitars and play some music. The result? According to a review by our own Robert Davis, the imagined jam session might've been more interesting than its execution. "It doesn't actually generate many real sparks," Davis reports. "These guys have zero chemistry in film." He admits, though, "It Might Get Loud is still great fun."

Even if we can't expect fireworks, as the trailer hints, we can expect a compelling glimpse into the lives of three rock legends. The film is illuminated by concert footage from the archives and ardent confessions about each musician's infatuation with the instrument. "We're all attempting to share something with another human being," White says. The trailer also promises original music from Page, the making of a U2 single, and new music from White as well.
