Beastie Boys Story trailer: Spike Jonze has a little story to tell in a new documentary about the rap legends

Rap music and hip-hop culture has been around for over 40 years and continues to dominate the modern soundscape, yet it is odd how few notable documentaries have been made about some of the music's pioneers. Spike Jonze changes that a little by returning from a 7-year feature film break to direct Beastie Boys Story, a new documentary recalling the group's history and influence on modern day culture. It takes some inspiration from the stage show of the same name that was also directed by Jonze and is based on Adam “Ad-Rock” Horovitz and Michael “Mike D” Diamond's memoir. The film will be making its premiere at SXSW, before arriving in cinemas and then Apple+. Check out the short teaser trailer for Beastie Boys Story above.

Here’s a little story they’re about to tell…Coming Apple TV+, Mike Diamond and Adam Horovitz share the story of their band and 40 years of friendship in a live documentary directed by friend, collaborator, and their former grandfather, Spike Jonze.

You can catch Beastie Boys Story in select cinemas from April 3, before it arrives on Apple+ TV on April 24.
