Taurus (2022)

Machine Gun Kelly is drawing from his life experiences to play a worried rock star with addiction and fame pressures in his upcoming film Taurus. "This is my 14th or 15th movie, but this movie is really close to me," Kelly told a crowd after being honored at Variety's Newport Beach Film Festival Honors brunch on Oct. 16."It's about the last week that a musician is alive, and he's just trying to battle between the good and the — just trying to find the good in himself. And that's kind of how I feel, a lot of the times. I always get asked about what it's like being a musician acting, but it feels a little bit to me like going in a toy store and just looking at a toy in a box. Like I don't want to be in a box. I want you to take the toy out of the box and experience what the toy does."

Machine Gun Kelly's real name, Colson Baker shows up in credit, and director Tim Sutton tells the story from his perspective and shows the struggle with the pain of fame and the suffocation of stardom as record companies pressure him to churn out a successful song. 



 

What is the Plot of Taurus?

Taurus tells the story of a star named Cole who is on a self-destructive path after he recently got divorced and fresh off a tour. He indulges in women, drugs, and reckless behavior. The story is very loosely based on Machine Gun Kelly's own life and his relationship with fame. The story follows Cole over the course of a few days as he tries to find the inspiration to record one last song. 

Who Is In The Cast Of Taurus?

Apart from Machine Gun Kelly as Cole, Maddie Hasson plays his assistant, Ilana, who's charged with caring for the struggling star. Machine Gun Kelly's real-life fiance, Megan Fox also appears in the movie as Cole's ex-wife.

Release date and How to Watch...

Taurus premieres in theaters and on-demand, and digitally, on November 18 from RLJE films.  "We were almost shying away from it being autobiographical, it felt like, at first. And then, I think, it just became me," Kelly said during the Berlin Film Festival earlier this year (via People). “They stick me as a character all the time — which, maybe I presented myself to the world as — but I feel like maybe people will get to actually know me through this film."Check out the trailer below.
