Edgar Wright's Sparks Doc Looks Sublime
8 June 2021
Edgar Wright's new film, a documentary about The Sparks Brothers, received its premiere at Sundance earlier this year and is getting a wide release this July. A new trailer for the project includes commentary from Beck, Flea, Giorgio Moroder, the Go-Go’s Jane Wiedlin, Jason Schwartzmann, Jack Antonoff, Todd Rundgren, and more. Watch The Sparks Brothers’ trailer below.
The Sparks Brothers is the first music documentary from Wright, whose other credits include Shaun Of The Dead, Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World, Baby Driver and the forthcoming Last Night In Soho, Wright has also lent his fantasy Double Features exclusively to Ipswich Film Theatre and we'll be playing one or more every month. The band’s most recent album—their 24th—was last year’s A Steady Drip, Drip, Drip.
We're planning some screenings of The Sparks Brothers this summer - keep an eye out!
