Exclusive: New Good Vibrations Poster
More punky than a Sid Vicious sandwich

Judging by its new poster, Belfast-set period piece Good Vibrations looks like it will be louder than a bomb. It tells the story of music shop owner and self-made punk impresario Terri Hooley,  who ran Good Vibrations record shop during the 1970s and set up a record label that discovered bands like Rudi, The Undertones and The Outcasts.

"We wanted to show a different side of punk," David Holmes, the film's producer and the man responsible for the film's jukebox of raucous '70s tracks, tells Empire. "There's no Sex Pistols or The Clash, because we wanted to come at it from a different angle."

A "feel great" angle, by the looks of things, with the poster quotes blaring out like an impressively bespeakered Ford Cortina. The man playing Terri Hooley - he's the one in the middle with the beard, by the by - is Richard Dormer, who you may see in the next season of Game Of Thrones, as he's been cast as Beric Dondarrion, Lord of Blackhaven.

On the far left of the poster you may recognise Jodie "Attack The Block" Whittaker, but you'll be hard-pressed to spot Dylan Moran, who despite being one of the leads doesn't actually crop up on this here quad. Better luck next time eh Dylan?

To find out more about Good Vibrations - which is out on March 29 - take a look at this mini-doc about the real-life punk hero below.
