Spike Jonze's Beastie Boys Documentary To Stream On Apple TV+

beastie boys 062116

A new Beastie Boys documentary is scheduled to be released this April and will be available on Apple's new streaming service, Apple TV+.

Directed by Academy Award-winning filmmaker Spike Jonze, the film is a "live documentary," which is a mix of both a live show and a documentary about the band's past, beginning with their formation in New York in 1981.

A person named Larry (a reference to the band's 2011 song, "The Larry Routine") shared that the mixed format will "make more sense when you see the trailer that the filmmakers haven't finished editing yet, despite constant badgering."

Dubbed Beastie Boys Story, the film is an extension of the band's New York Times bestselling book, "Beastie Boys Book," which featured contributions from the likes of Jonze, Amy Poehler, Colson Whitehead, and Wes Anderson, among others.

The live show incorporated into the film originally took place at the Brooklyn's Kings Theatre.

The film will receive a limited IMAX release on April 3 and will be available for streaming on Apple TV+ beginning on April 24.
