Spike Jonze’s Beastie Boys Story Teaser Trailer

After releasing the fantastic Beastie Boys Book back in 2018, surviving Beasties Adam Horowitz and Michael Diamond are continuing to tell the story of their iconic band this year through an upcoming documentary directed by long-time collaborator Spike Jonze. The movie is simply called Beastie Boys Story and it will premiere at SXSW next month before arriving on Apple TV+ one month later. However, there is one element of this project that makes it seem a little less essential: it is billed as a “live documentary” and incorporates on-stage footage from a recent speaking tour that Horowitz and Diamond did to support the book. So… is this just a concert film of their book tour? Apple has released a sneak peek of the film and it is still difficult to tell exactly what it will be, but you have to trust Jonze to do something unique with it either way. Beastie Boys Story hits select IMAX theatres on April 3rd before arriving on Apple TV+ on April 24th; check out the teaser below and see what you think.
