The film, titled Beastie Boys Story, features surviving members Mike “Mike D” Diamond and Adam “Ad-Rock” Horovitz telling an “intimate, personal story of their band and 40 years of friendship,” according to a press release. It’s directed by the group’s longtime collaborator, filmmaker Spike Jonze.

In 2018, Diamond and Horovitz released the 600-page Beastie Boys Book about the band’s history. They also hosted a number of live events in support of the book last year, which were directed by Jonze.

Beastie Boys Story will premiere in select IMAX theaters on April 3. It will then hit Apple TV+ on April 24.
