Brand: A Second Coming

"I've seen what happens if you take loads of drugs… I've now seen what happens if you make money in Hollywood…" The official trailer for the new Russell Brand documentary has debuted, for those interested in seeing where the comedian/actor/activist/maniac is at now. Titled Brand: A Second Coming, from doc director Ondi Timoner, the film is about a "second coming" of Russell Brand following his rise to fame and subsequent fall thanks to criticism. It looks like it tells a cautionary tale of excess and consumerism, which is the message behind his recent activism anyway. Go "behind the scenes of this wildly complex man for an intimate look at what drives Russell Brand as he continues to be the consummate disruptor." Enjoy!

Here's the first official trailer for Ondi Timoner's doc BRAND: A Second Coming, direct from YouTube:

BRAND: A Second Coming chronicles actor/comedian/activist Russell Brand on his journey from addict, self-proclaimed narcissist and Hollywood star living in the fast-lane to his current, and unexpected, role as political disruptor & newfound hero to the underserved. Criticized for egomaniacal self-interest, Brand injects his madness in to the world and calls for revolution. He stays the course with an irreverent courage that will inspire a new generation of activists to rise up against the ever-increasing world engorged in consumerism. Can Brand rise against the roar of criticism from the very system that built him? Does he have the fortitude, resilience and commitment to keep up the fight? BRAND: A Second Coming is a documentary produced, written and directed by filmmaker Ondi Timoner, of the docs Dig! and We Live In Public. This first premiered at the SXSW Film Festival. The film will open in LA starting on September 25th this fall.

    Well, he fucked Katy Perry. That's achievement today. Unfortunately ...

    Russell Brand always makes me wonder whether he's a narcissistic vacuous child trying to be an intelligent and witty sage or an intelligent and witty sage trying to be a narcissistic vacuous child. I'm thinking he might be both. I find myself feeling equal objection to people who praise him as people who dismiss him. All in all, somewhat of an interesting phenomenon, that man. I won't mind watching this documentary one day.

    How is this drug addled, sex fiend worthy of a documentary? Cause he is loud and annoying? He isnt funny, or entertaining.
    Brand is smart, but the way he presents himself is so GD annoying.

    I think of all the people who probably could use a documentary to highlight their story on this planet...unfortunately, Brand does not crack the top 200. I'm trying to think of a movie or production he was in, period...let alone one I have seen. Not saying I am some massive movie goer, but I really can't think of a movie I have seen him in. He is an "actor", right?
    • TheOct8pus
      I always thought of him as more of a subversive comic than an actor....anyway.....I agree. Where's the documentary about Malala? How about doing a documentary about the thousands of people who work for peanuts trying to help others against all odds? There are literally millions of people who's stories are worth hearing more than this guy's.
  • According to the movie 'Forgetting Sarah Marshall' I thought Russell Brand was a fictitious person.

    "Tremendous access - The Hollywood Reporter" Well, there's a rousing endorsement...
  • Jamie Holmes
    I love him.
  • Guy who comments on things
    Check out the trews on youtube. I think a lot of the Americans commenting on this don't really know who he is. I see a lot of comments from people with the basis of " I haven't seen him in many movies, therefore I don't care about him". That logic baffles me.
