Tour Dates Green Day Revolution Radio Tour
Ordinary World Billie Joe Armstrong Trailer Released
What happens when Revolution Radio turns into dad rock? You get Ordinary World, which features Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong in his first leading role as an actor. After appearing at the Tribeca Film Festival earlier this year, the dramedy will make its way onto theaters on October 14. Less than a month before its release, we’re now getting the first trailer.
The film’s premise is basically, “What if Green Day became irrelevant and 44-year-old Billie Joe Armstrong became a washed-up dad?” The trailer follows him as he goes punk for a night. Hijinks ensue with Fred Armisen making an appearance. Watch the clip below.
Billie Joe Armstrong has been to the top of rock and roll mountain. But in the new trailer for Ordinary World, the Green Day singer plays loveable punk rock wash-out Perry Miller, who is having a terrible, horrible, not so great 40th birthday. Rocking nerdy black frame glasses and and a not-so-cool red vest at his lame hardware store day job, Miller is bummed out when his wife (Selma Blair) forgets his birthday.

So, he does what any failed rock star would do, he grabs his best bud (Fred Armisen) and has a blow out party at a hotel. Check out Armstrong’s first starring role, which will be released in theaters, digital HD and On Demand on Oct. 14:
