Spike Jonze Drops Beastie Boys Story Trailer

RS: As seen in the clip, the movie was inspired by Diamond and Horovitz’s collaboration on 2018 memoir Beastie Boys Book  and the live show that followed it. The 571-page tome, written over the course of four years, paid tribute to their best friend and bandmate, Adam Yauch, who died of cancer in 2012, which is also a key part of the trailer. The film will premiere in IMAX on April 2nd and on Apple TV+ on April 24th, right on the heels of the 26th anniversary of the release of Beastie Boys’ 1994 album Ill Communication. It reunites Beastie Boys with Jonze over 25 years after directing the music video for the album’s single “Sabotage.” MORE
