It Might Get Loud is a "documentary on the electric guitar from the point of view of three significant rock musicians: the Edge, Jimmy Page and Jack White." This rad doc first showed up in Toronto last year and is finally looking to hit theaters starting in August. "I've gone through things where I go onstage and the sound guy at sound check comes over and he'll hold the decibel meter and show it to me while we're playing — and it's 127 decibels,” White told Rolling Stone, where this poster debuted today. "That's not good. And I can't even tell. If it's not right there, it feels wimpy, it feels uninspiring." I'm digging this design quite a damn bit!
It Might Get Loud is directed by veteran producer/filmmaker Davis Guggenheim, of Gossip, Al Gore's An Inconvenient Truth, and Gracie previously, as well as various episodes of TV shows. The doc also explores why the three musicians were driven to learn their craft and digs into their unique creative processes. This film first premiered at the Toronto Film Festival last year and also played at Sundance and the Los Angeles Film Festival. Sony Pictures Classics is bringing It Might Get Loud to theaters on August 14th this year.
