'A Film About Life, Death & Supermarkets' (trailer)

BY Gregory AdamsPublished May 29, 2014

While it screened earlier this month at Cannes, Pulp's upcoming concert flick A Film About Life, Death & Supermarkets is about to debut in the band's native Sheffield, which makes sense since the movie is about a reunion concert in the band's hometown. Ahead of the screening, the group have let loose a trailer featuring both the band and some, ahem, common people.

Scored by hit single "Common People," the trailer shows off clips of a sparkle-adorned adult choir singing the Pulp classic, the on-field activities of a local football team seemingly sponsored by the group, more down-to-earth shots of butchers, and visuals of lead singer Jarvis Cocker grinding his junk onto a speaker. "He's always been an exhibitionist," a voice explains mid-trailer.

The Sheffield screening takes place June 7 at Sheffield City Hall, and you can see the rest of the European film screening schedule over here.

The film previously played at Toronto's Hoc Doc festival, and you can read Exclaim!'s review here.
