'The Bee Gees: How Can You Mend a Broken Heart' Doc Teaser Trailer
"There's nothing else to say about the Bee Gees except they're f*&king awesome." HBO has unveiled the first teaser trailer for a new music documentary called The Bee Gees: How Can You Mend a Broken Heart, from producer / filmmaker Frank Marshall (directing his first ever doc despite producing many before this). It just premiered at a few film festivals this fall and it launches on HBO in December later this year. Marshall's The Bee Gees documentary chronicles the triumphs and hurdles of brothers Barry, Maurice and Robin Gibb, otherwise known as the Bee Gees. The film is an intimate exploration of the Gibb story, featuring revealing interviews with oldest brother Barry and archival interviews with the late twin brothers Robin and Maurice. The film features a wealth of never- before-seen archival footage of recording sessions, concert performances, TV appearances and home videos, as well as interviews with musicians Eric Clapton, Noel Gallagher, Nick Jonas, Chris Martin, Justin Timberlake, music producer Mark Ronson, singer Lulu, and record company executive Bill Oakes, among others. Sounds good to me! And looking very good so far.
Teaser for Frank Marshall's doc The Bee Gees: How Can You Mend a Broken Heart, from YouTube:
The Bee Gees: How Can You Mend a Broken Heart chronicles the triumphs and hurdles of brothers Barry, Maurice, and Robin Gibb, otherwise known as the Bee Gees. The iconic trio, who found early fame in the Sixties, went on to write over 1,000 songs, including twenty number one hits throughout their storied career. This film follows the Bee Gee’s meteoric rise, as they rode the highs of fame and fortune, negotiated the vagaries of the ever-shifting music business and navigated the complexities of working so intimately alongside family. The Bee Gees: How Can You Mend a Broken Heart is directed by American producer / filmmaker Frank Marshall, director of the feature films Arachnophobia, Alive, Congo, and Eight Below previously, directing his first doc (he has produced plenty of other docs including The China Hustle and They'll Love Me When I'm Dead). This premiered at the Miami & Newport Beach Film Festivals this fall. HBO will debut Marshall's The Bee Gees doc streaming on HBO Max starting on December 12th this year.
Looks like a standard doc about musicians and their success. And besides, I never found them very interesting, but I think they did their thing quite all right. Good for them ..

Agree with Shibby, nothing new. Just your standard 70s rock star story.

This is going to be brilliant - a brand new doco on the #BeeGees by the same Academy Award-winning team behind things like Eight Days A Week (the Beatles) and No Direction Home (Bob Dylan).
