Happy New Year, people! And if you enjoyed some lively New Year's Eve/New Year's Day festivities, hopefully it was not quite as 'rock 'n roll' as this...

Jonas Åkerlund has recreated the moment in the life and career of Ozzy Osbourne when his rock 'n roll star-lifestyle as the frontman of Black Sabbath took him to the brink, and future wife Sharon Arden arrived just in time, to pull him back. 

Jack Kilmer (son of actors Val Kilmer and Joanne Whalley) plays the young, self-destructive Ozzy in 1979, while Jessica Barden (End Of The F*cking World) plays the buttoned-up Sharon, who tracks him down to his West Hollywood motel retreat, and nurses his recovery. 

With Barden as Sharon also recounting the story by interview to camera, the video for Under The Graveyard abides by biopic and documentary conventions - and Åkerlund is the perfect choice to dramatize the debauchery and excess of Osbourne in his Black Sabbath pomp.

So after Freddie and Elton, could Ozzy be next in line for a proper movie?
