Watch: the first trailer for the forthcoming Bruce Springsteen-inspired movie ‘Blinded By the Light’ has arrived

'Blinded By the Light' hits theatres on August 14

The first trailer for the forthcoming Bruce Springsteen-inspired movie, Blinded by the Light, is here, and it follows Javed (Viveik Kalra) as he finds himself stuck between his traditional family, his love for writing, and his ever-growing passion for Springsteen tunes.

The feel-good film, which comes from the directors of Bend It Like Beckham, is based on Sarfraz Manzoor’s memoir, Greetings From Bury park: Race, Religion and Rock N’ Roll. “I listen to everything, I can feel it all right here,” Javed states in the trailer. “It’s like Bruce knows everything I’ve ever felt. Everything I’ve ever wanted.”

Watch the trailer for Blinded by the Light below.
