A new documentary on the Beastie Boys, called Beastie Boys Story, will premiere this spring on Apple TV+ and in selected IMAX theaters.
The movie is directed by filmmaker Spike Jonze, a longtime collaborator with the legendary trio, and is based in part on a stage show that Jonze put together last year with surviving Beastie Boys members Adam Horovitz and Mike Diamond. The third member of the act, Adam Yauch, passed away in 2012.
The film, which also grew out of the Beastie Boys Book that Horovitz and Diamond published in 2018, is described as “an intimate, personal story of their band and 40 years of friendship.” It reunites Jonze with the band more than 25 years after he first worked with them on the video for their classic single “Sabotage.”
Beastie Boys Story will open in select IMAX theaters for a limited engagement starting on April 3rd, and hits Apple TV+ on April 24th.
