Machine Gun Kelly posed up a storm Thursday at the 25th SCAD Savannah Film Festival in aid of his new film Taurus.

The svelte blond 32-year-old rapper stars in the movie as a troubled rock star increasingly plunging into self-destruction.

However his shambolic appearance in the movie was a far cry from the sleek, dapper monochrome look he wore to the red carpet for Taurus in Savannah this week.

Wearing his signature platinum blonde hair in a throwback pompadour, he slid his petite frame into a sleek black suit with white trim.

The extravagantly slanting lapels brought a touch of kooky rock star flair to the look, which he rounded off with black shoes.

Lovecraft Country heartthrob Jonathan Majors could also be spotted at the premiere in an eye-popping fashion forward look.

He tucked a splashy multicolored blouse-like top into a luxuriously loose-fitted pair of cutoff grey slacks, rounding off the look with retro shoes.

Jonathan, who is not in Taurus but can be seen soon in the upcoming Creed III, was a sizzling sensation as he posed up next to Kelly at the film festival.

That day a chaotic new trailer dropped for the movie, including a brief appearance by Kelly’s real-life wife Megan Fox as a character called Mae.

Kelly, whose real name is Colson Baker, plays a singer called Cole who is seen spiraling ever downwards, unable to cope with stardom.

However Cole is glimpsed enjoying a lighter moment with Mae, wrapping her in a warm hug while the pair of them share a laugh.

Throughout the rest of the trailer however, Cole is seen lashing out at various people in his orbit including his assistant Ilana played by Maddie Hasson.

Ilana is briefly seen at one point driving Cole, who buries his head in his hands to block out the noise of fans screaming and photographing him.

Cole’s sleazy manager Ray, played by Scoot McNairy, upbraids Ilana that she is ‘not doing your job’ but she argues she ‘can’t watch him every minute.’

One quick clip of Cole’s troubles shows him bent over, clearly on the verge of vomiting, as Ilana stands by helplessly.

He eventually turns on her, scolding her that ‘maybe you could act more like an employee so I’m not late, cool?’

Ilana ultimately becomes fed up of being needled and screams: ‘God I hate you!’ during a blowout fight during which he tears his hat off and throws it to the floor.

Ray on the other hand is the enabler, telling Cole he ‘got you the nicest recording studio in Los Angeles’ though the pop act insists he ‘didn’t ask for it, man.’

As Cole is pushed into doing more work, his friend Syl, played by Demetrius ‘Lil Meech’ Flenory, notices something amiss.

Cole seems unable to escape the glare of the spotlight, trying to smile onstage even while bashfully covering his face with his sleeve.

Even while at home he subjects himself to the view of the public, playing the guitar for his fans whilst going live on Instagram.

Kelly also composed the songs for the movie and acted as a script consultant, adding another layer to the eerie lyrics he sings over the trailer.

‘Life imitates art,’ he intones adding: ‘Bury me alive, disappear underground where they found me before I ever had this career.’

In one particularly self-destructive moment Cole, swaying as if under the influence, wanders stumbling into traffic at night. 

The final shot of the trailer shows Cole sitting alone in a recording studio, slumped motionless over a piano before rousing himself to play one note. 

Written and directed by Tim Sutton, who also helmed Kelly’s western The Last Son, Taurus is slated for a theatrical release in America on November 18.
