Billy Corgan Releases Trailer For Debut Movie ‘Pillbox’


Los Angeles, CA – September 20, 2017 – GRAMMY® Award winning, acclaimed singer-songwriter and Smashing Pumpkins frontman, William Patrick Corgan today announced Pillbox, a silent film set to music from his highly-anticipated forthcoming Rick Rubin produced solo album Ogilala, due out October 13, 2017 via BMG. Corgan today also shared the film’s official trailer.

“I thought it was a different approach to listening to an album, to watch it in essence with a related, albeit non-linear, silent movie. Art is art. And together the two pieces create a work unto itself,” shared Corgan on the film’s connection to his new album.

nspired by a hero’s journey, Pillbox was written by Corgan, and directed by Corgan alongside longtime collaborator Linda Strawberry. The film is a Strawberry-Blank Assassin Production and stars: Harry Holmes, Rai Quartley, Anna Steers, Kalpana Pot, Hardeep Manak, Los Angela, Paul Seroka, Amelya Hensley, and Ike Catcher.

Corgan today also announced four intimate screenings of the film in London, Los Angeles, Chicago, and New York. Tickets for the screenings will go on sale at this Friday, September 22 at 11:00am PT and will be available HERE. Fans who attend the screenings will receive a limited edition movie poster.
