Cameron Crowe is crawling his way back after the abhorrent mess that was Elizabethtown. He has 3 films coming up including the awards baiting We Bought a Zoo, a musical documentary about Leon Russell and Elton John‘s collaboration called The Union and another documentary called Pearl Jam Twenty. Today, we can bring you a trailer for the latter, and it looks to be bringing Crowe right back to top form.
The trailer has arrived out of today’s announcement that the film will be premiering at the Toronto International Film Festival. It looks to be a fascinating examination of that period of music and the history of this group of people. According to Crowe it will feature footage of Kurt Cobain, a very rare luxury awarded to films but according to his statement he’s got it. There will also be interviews with Chris Cornell and Neil Young as well as a strange appearance from David Lynch. Read his whole statement here:
That’s right. Pearl Jam Twenty will have its world premiere at the 36th annual Toronto International Film Festival. TIFF lists the final running time at 120 minutes, but that’s not confirmed as of yet. Also, in addition to the previously announced Neil Young andChris Cornell interviews, it seems that Kurt Cobain interview footage will also be present the film. It sounds like a great time to be in Toronto as Pearl Jam will be playing back to back concerts at the Air Canada Centre on September 11th and 12th.
The film is assembled from mixing talking heads with previously unseen, old footage that looks a lot like Anton Corbijn’s rock photography. As mentioned, the film will premiere at TIFF before a planned release in the fall for the US.
