Spike Jonze has shared the first trailer for the upcoming Beastie Boys Story. Described as “the story of three friends who inspired each other and the world,” the movie will showcase Adam Horovitz and Mike Diamond as they reflect on their 40-year friendship.

The film was inspired by the Beastie Boys Book that Horovitz and Diamond wrote together. It took four years to put together the 571 page book, which was part of their tribute to bandmate Adam Yauch, who died of cancer in 2012.

The film will premiere in IMAX theatres within the U.S. on April 2 and on AppleTV+ on April 24. It reunites the band with Spike Jonze, who directed the iconic “Sabotage” music video 25 years ago. Jonze also worked with the band on videos for “Sure Shot”, “Root Down”, “Don’t Play No Game That I Can’t Win” and “Time For Livin”.

Jonze collaborated with the Beasties for the upcoming Beastie Book photo book which arrives March 17. It will contain over 200 photos captured by Jonze of the band’s remarkable career.
