Aah the Beastie Boys, if these three icons never found their way into your record collection over the years then… go and sort that out now! Today, we take a look at the excellent trailer for Beastie Boys Story, coming to Apple TV+ on 24 April.
I really love this, it shows us how remaining Beastie Boys Mike Diamond and Adam Horovitz (R.I.P. MCA – Adam Yauch) will tell you their personal story of the band and 40 years of friendship. It’s setup as a live documentary experience, directed by the also legendary – and longtime friend and collaborator – Spike Jonze.
The film is set to premiere on the 26th anniversary of 1994 album, “Ill Communication” and 25 years since Jonze directed the music video for Sabotage.
Beastie Boys Story is produced by Grammy Award winner Jason Baum, Amanda Adelson, alongside director and writer Jonze, and executive produced by Mike Diamond, Adam Horovitz, Dechen Wangdu-Yauch, John Silva, John Cutcliffe, Peter Smith, Thomas Benski, Dan Bowen, Sam Bridger, Michele Anthony, David Blackman, Ashley Newton, Losel Yauch and Jonah Hill. The film is produced for Apple by Fresh Bread and Pulse Films in association with Polygram Entertainment.
The project grew out of Adam’s and Mike’s collaboration on their bestselling Beastie Boys Book.
