UPDATE (November 28, 2019): The official trailer for the forthcoming Gorillaz documentary concert film is here. Featuring live concert clips and behind-the-scenes footage in the recording and animation studios, Gorillaz: Reject False Icons will detail the creation of the revered band’s most recent works:

Watch the full trailer above.


ORIGINAL STORY (November 21, 2019): Two months after reconnecting with G-SHOCK for a second, album-art-inspired collaborative effort, Gorillaz are introducing a new documentary film known as Gorillaz: Reject False Icons. Directed by Denholm Hewlett, Gorillaz: Reject False Icons chronicles the studio sessions surrounding the group’s past two studio albums, 2018’s The Now Now and 2017’s Humanz, as well as the subsequent touring that supported the aforementioned full-length projects. Vince Staples, Pusha T, Kelela, Danny Brown, Noel Gallagher and other high-profile artists and collaborators will also make appearances during the movie.

“Gorillaz isn’t about anything specific,” Gorillaz architect explained to The Guardian during a 2017 interview. “It’s very unruly. You can go anywhere and do anything, and that’s the whole point of it. There’s no agenda. I’ll go with what’s exciting, and I’ll make it work, because I can pretty much lend my hand to anything, musically.”

You can take a look at the official Instagram announcement about Gorillaz: Reject False Icons below, and head on over to the film’s website for more information. Gorillaz: Reject False Icons will be in theaters for one night only on Monday, December 16.
