Beastie Boys Story Trailer

"What we're going to do right here is go back. Way back – back into time." Apple TV+ has debuted the first full-length trailer for Beastie Boys Story, described as a "live documentary" feature film about the classic rock / rap / punk band. Mike Diamond and Adam Horovitz share the story of their band and 40 years of friendship in a live documentary directed by friend, collaborator, and their former grandfather, the one-and-only Spike Jonze. This is an extension of the Beastie Boys Book from 2018, a memoir that paid tribute to Adam Yauch, who died of cancer in 2012. "Live portions of the documentary were taken from Horovitz and Diamond's recent show at Kings Theatre in Brooklyn; it was all part of a live tour directed by [Spike] Jonze that consisted of Q&A segments, readings, and guest moderators." This looks incredible! I love that it's a mix of doc and live discussion and nostalgia and everything else. Looking forward to seeing this soon.

Here's the full trailer (+ poster) for Spike Jonze's doc Beastie Boys Story, from Apple TV's YouTube:

You can still watch the first teaser trailer for Jonze's Beastie Boys Story doc here, to see the original reveal.

Mike Diamond and Adam Horovitz of Beastie Boys tell you an intimate, personal story of their band, and their 40 years of friendship together. The documentary is a live extension of 2018's Beastie Boys Book, a memoir that paid tribute to Yauch, who died of cancer in 2012. "Looking back, it’s like, oh shit, that was crazy — how did we live through that?" Horovitz told Rolling Stone of the memoir. "And look at us now. We're grown-ups. We have to think about mortgages. I gotta get dog food." Beastie Boys Story is directed by American filmmaker Spike Jonze, his second doc after making Pretty Sweet previously, as well as the feature films Being John Malkovich, Adaptation, Where the Wild Things Are, and Her previously. Produced by Spike Jonze, Jason Baum, and Amanda Adelson. Apple TV+ will release Jonze's Beastie Boys Story live doc streaming exclusively starting on April 24th. For more info, visit Apple.

They look more like a success story, but also a story without a substance. Yes, they look good and probably work good together, but that's nothing special when it comes to music. Definitely, they were not my thing and can't start being it now ...

this is a definite watch - i love their story. alex, have you seen the trailer for the "the quarry"? if not- check it out ...very interesting. (and it's got michael shannon!)

Just watched now (and posted) the trailer for The Quarry. Looks pretty bland to me, not my kind of thing, too many of these small town crime thrillers. Even though Shannon is badass.

i agree that there is too many "small town crime" movies - but i like how the killer has ended up there and is posing as a priest. i'll give it a watch.

Let me know if it's any good! Curious to find out, has a solid cast.

Alex Billington on Mar 12, 2020


will do. i forgot to mention the guy playing the preacher - i loved him in boardwalk empire. i think this will be worth at least one watch. (fingers crossed)

I hope the Covid doesn't fuck this up, but something tells me, it will.

Well it'll be available through VOD from Apple in April anyway, so no matter what you'll still be able to watch it at home / online.
