Default Beastie Boys and Spike Jonze Announce New Documentary

Beastie Boysí Mike D and Adam ďAd-RockĒ Horovitz, along with Spike Jonze, have announced a new documentary: Beastie Boys Story will debut on IMAX on April 3, followed by a global release on April 24 via Apple TV+. Jonze directed the movie and co-wrote it with Mike D and Ad-Rock. The project grew out of Jonze and the Beastiesí massive Beastie Boys Book, according to a press release.

ďThere are some friends you have lunch with so many times over the years, you know their order,Ē Mike D and Ad-Rock said in a statement. ďSpike is one of those friends. And even when you donít recognize anything on the menu, he comes up with something good for the whole table. Like when we wondered what to do when our book comes out... then Spike placed his order: You will put on a show for the children.Ē

Spike Jonze added, ďI owe Beastie Boys a lot. One time, they pulled me out of a burning ship, and another time they helped me cheat on my college exam to get into Florida State. So, it was a real privilege to get to reunite with them and help them tell their story.Ē

Coming up, Jonze and Beastie Boys will release a photo book. The collection, called Beastie Boys, is out March 17.

Yay!

And it is all over social media now:

"ďWait, what!?! I just heard that Mike Diamond and Adam Horovitz made a movie about Beastie Boys and their lives growing up around a lot of crazy ass sh*t in NYC with Spike Jonze. Is that for real?" - Larry from Weehawken

ďYes. It is for real. It's kind of a live documentary film, mostly filmed at our shows at Kings Theatre in Brooklyn last year by Spike and we think youíre gonna love it.Ē - Us

Beastie Boys Story streams on Apple TV starting April 24 and a special cut of the film opens in select IMAX theatres on April 3.

Lotís more to come."


And they have changed their Instagram name to be beastieboysstory


Mike D and The Echo Chamber has made me get Apple Music. Better get to figure out what Apple TV is all about now.

My little quick research says that I can get it as an app on my iPhone, and stream it and cast it to my TV (I got Chromecast).

Hopefully we will be able to just buy the video (or rent) and not have to pay for a monthly subscription.

Certainly hope so!
And let's also hope the movie will be playing in cinemas in Europe as well!

Arrow Re: Beastie Boys and Spike Jonze Announce New Documentary

I'm interested to see what footage they use. I was at the Philly show and the crowd was great but from what I heard the Brooklyn crowds were kind of lame. I have to imagine they want to bill the show as happening in NYC but if the footage was better in Philly I wonder if we'll see more of that venue.

Same here! A physical release is a must!

Ireland only has one IMAX screen as far as I know, and itís a bit out of my way, but if they wind up showing it Iíll definitely go!

There has to be a physical release or at least a download you can purchase. They canít expect everyone to sign up to Apple TV+ or what ever itís called and if they do itíll just be for the free trail to watch it.



Yes Adam yauch was very spiritual yes he raised awareness about the situation in Tibet yea he was a great father , husband and friend but most of all he was a dope MC one of the greatest to ever pick up a mike his voice will be missed- Chris Rock

Great news, Iíll be making the effort to see it in theaters and stream it whatever way possible. And if they release it in the marketplace as a physical thing that would be cool too but this is 2020 and I wonít demand or moan over how I consume my content

Iíd like a physical release but Iíd be surprised. Streaming services main objective is to get paying subscribers, and they are becoming even more cynical in regards to offering any alternatives ways to view their content (free trials aside).

Iíd like the doc in my collection, ideally alongside The Irishman on blu-ray! But I donít think it will happen sadly.

Good news about the doc either way. One can only presume there are better financial incentives via this admittedly common and current distribution route.

the whole imax detail is intriguing. should we be expecting something unique? i wouldnt peg documentaries as typical candidates for the imax treatment. then again, i dont go to see alot of docs at the cinema either.

perhaps they are simply scaling up to make folks feel like theyre physically at the theatre/performance.

dah well. eager for the screening locations and dates to be released. i always feel a little edgy until i have tickets in hand for these events, even if they arent even available yet.

documentaries are huge for IMAX, itís nothing new. iíve seen a bunch just the past couple of years. Pandas, Free Solo and Hidden Pacific looked great on the big screen and i just recently watched Apollo 11 and since most of that is shot in 70mm it looked and sounded ridiculous.

if you want to see a documentary in the cinema, IMAX is the only way to go. their screen and sound canít be matched. iím very excited for this release.

Not by the beastie boys and no Iím not saying that. Besides so many people jumped ship on Disney + when the Mandalorina season ended.

yea dude lost his mind and that was ok, but i drew the line when the red hat appeared. on the other hand, larry david found a very good use for it in curb s10e01 and the scene with the biker dude was just about the funniest thing i've seen in a long time.

i love larry david almost as much as i love the beasties...almost.

The whole episode was great. They usually don't have as many bits packed into one episode. Loved it, they really set up some fun arcs for the season.
