Not to be confused with Bafta nominated Control, the new Joy Division movie is simply their story in their words. With the participation of all the surviving band members (now known as New Order), 'Joy Division' examines the band's story as depicted through never-before-seen live performance footage, personal photos, period films and newly discovered audiotapes.
From director Grant Gee and producers Tom Atencio, Tom Astor and Jacqui Edenbrow, Joy Division chronicles a time of great social and political change in England and tells the untold story of four men who transcended economic and cultural barriers to produce an enduring musical legacy.

The movie is out 2nd May 2008.

For those of you who have been kept in the dark recently, here is the trailer for 'Control.'
