Though it's not out until fall, moviegoers are already catching the colorful, punk-inspired trailer for Sofia
Coppola's biopic 'Marie Antoinette.' While the film's design clearly apes the Sex Pistols' infamous band
logo, Bow Wow Wow bassist Leigh Gorman says its his group's frontwoman, Annabella Lwin, who influences the title character.

"Apparently she's modeled on Anabella, and her lover later in the movie is modeled on Adam Ant," Gorman says.

Bow Wow Wow will have three songs on the soundtrack put together by Brian Reitzell, alongside cuts by
Siouxsie and the Banshees, New Order and Joy Division. And the band's most famous cover inspired Coppola's credits.

"The name of the production company on the movie is called 'I Want Candy Productions'," Gorman says.
"Apparently [Coppola's] a fan."
