UK Trailer for Mat Whitecross' Doc 'Supersonic' About the Band Oasis
"A brilliant blast of 90's nostalgia." A trailer has debuted for a new rock doc called Supersonic, all about the band Oasis. Their song "Wonderwall" is one of the most popular songs in movies and trailers, but this doc goes way beyond that to tell their entire life story. From the director of Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll, and Asif Kapadia and James Gay-Rees, producers of the doc Amy, comes this in-depth look at the music of the Manchester-based rock band. This doc also reminds me of The Beatles: Eight Days a Week - The Touring Years, which is funny because this trailer has a quote referencing how they were "one of the biggest bands since the Beatles." This looks like it might be a great doc even for those who aren't fans of the band. Enjoy.
Here's the official UK trailer (+ poster) for Mat Whitecross' doc Supersonic, direct from YouTube:
From award-winning director Mat Whitecross, Supersonic tells the remarkable story of iconic band Oasis – in their own words. Featuring extensive unseen archive, Supersonic charts the meteoric rise of Oasis from the council estates of Manchester to some of the biggest concerts of all time in just 3 short years. This palpable, raw and moving film shines a light on one of the most genre and generation-defining British bands that has ever existed. Supersonic is directed by acclaimed English filmmaker Mat Whitecross, of the films The Shock Doctrine, The Road to Guantanamo, Ashes and Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll previously. The film hasn't premiered at any festivals, but will open in UK and Irish cinemas starting on October 2nd before hitting DVD/Blu-ray later that month. For more info, visit their Facebook. Any big fans of the band?

Blur is clearly the best 90's Britpop band....Oasis can suck it

You on crack? Blur is a joke.

Are you kidding? What has Oasis done in the past 15 years? Even at their height they were no more than a 3 open chord soft grunge band. Musically, Blur is way above Oasis. Damon Albarn is one of the most talented songwriters alive today...come on, you know music dude....listen to Blur's album 13, or anything by Gorillaz. Albarn has more musical talent in his right nut that the Gallaghers combined....even in early Blur sessions, their arrangements and chord progressions far surpass Oasis. I'm very disappointed in you, Sascha.... 🙂

Really, who needs another rock'n'roll (or any) star... I never was fun of everything, let alone musicians. Of course, I listened and do listen a lot, but not being very fateful to nothing more than a good music. I never was very much into these guys, but for the sake of the trailer, I must say, it's a good trailer ...
