Watch: Full Trailer for Ondi Timoner's Doc '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.
