Re:Generation is a Grammy®-associated documentary that chronicles the forced collaboration of a ton of different popular DJs/producers (Skrillex, DJ Premier, The Chrystal Method) with out-of-genre artists (The Doors, Leann Rimes, Erykah Badu), and as you might have guessed (watch the trailer below), ANTICS ENSUE. The novelty of the mash-up isn't quite where it was five or ten years ago, but hey, the Grammys have been stuck about that far behind the times for as long as I can remember, so whatevs. In my mind, the real draw here (besides landing a warm place to eat popcorn when you inevitably find yourself wandering stoned around downtown later) is the clashing of personalities that make any reality TV show worth its weight in social-decay. If the preview is any guide, there should be young DJs flipping sass to old vets, and indignant old guys talking back to aforementioned young bucks. On the flip side, there could be interesting music made, life-long friendships forged, group photo-shoots, and whatnot, so don't count that out. The most important part though, is that you get popcorn, and get stoned. Have fun.

Re:Generation runs at Pacific Place Cinema at 8 p.m. tonight only. Trailer after the jump...
