Watch the Pearl Jam 20 movie trailer

We love a good music documentary here at State and the forthcoming Pearl Jam movie looks like a belter. Directed by Cameron Crowe, Pearl Jam 20 is culled from more than 1,200 hours of rarely and never-before-seen footage, over 24 hours of recent interviews with the band, as well as live footage of their concert performances. “We put so much into the film – moments, pieces of footage shot by band members, audio snippets, visual bursts, new and old interviews – many different formats, all meant to present an emotional scrapbook of what it felt like to be a member of the band on this twenty-year journey,” said Crowe. “The richness of the footage made our path very clear – just tell the story of the band and let the music guide us. It was a joy to make this film, and we’re thrilled share it with the fans.”

Pearl Jam is set to release the documentary worldwide on September 20th in select cinemas for one night only, with a full week run of the film beginning Friday, September 23rd in key markets. The film will be shown at in select cities in the U.S. and internationally. Following this, the DVD of the film will be released worldwide by Columbia Records/Sony Music Entertainment October 2011. But, hey, enough of our yacking…
