There's a new Beastie Boys documentary from Spike Jonze coming in April

The film will be screened in IMAX

A new Beastie Boys documentary is set to be released.

Spike Jonze, the Oscar-winning filmmaker, who has a long-standing partnership with the hip-hop outfit, has directed the new documentary entitled Beastie Boys Story.

The film, slated for release on the 3rd April in a handful of IMAX cinemas, marks the 26th anniversary of the group's 1994 album, 'Ill Communication'.

Centered around surviving Beastie Boys members Michael “Mike D” Diamond and Adam “Ad-Rock” Horovitz, the film will also be available to rent and purchase on Apple TV+ from the 24th April.

Beastie Boys Story will follow the release of Jonze's first photography book, Beastie Boys, which will be available on the 17th March, and features hundreds of photos taken by Jonze throughout the group's career.

Read DJ Mag's Solid Gold feature on Beastie Boys' second album, where Ben Cardew revisits the rich sampling and undiluted fun of 'Paul's Boutique'.
