The trailer for Cameron Crowe’s comprehensive documentary Pearl Jam Twenty has been released, along with some images and a poster. The film, made up of rare and unseen footage as well as new interviews with the band members, chronicles the formation and career of Pearl Jam’s twenty-year history. The trailer inexplicably opens with David Lynch interviewing frontman Eddie Vedder, then delves into a montage of behind-the-scenes and concert footage intercut with narration from the band members.
The film is set to premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival this September, followed by a limited release into select theaters on September 23rd and a U.S. television premiere on October 21st on PBS’ American Masters series. For superfans of the band, this trailer is sure to be goosebump-inducing. Hell, even for non-fans the prospect of Crowe documenting the life of one of the most successful American rock bands of all time is enticement enough. Hit the jump to check out the trailer, poster and images.
