Hyde Park, June 1969
Legendary rockers The Rolling Stones have announce details of their brand new feature-length documentary Crossfire Hurricane. The film will receive a UK theatrical release in October. It will also be premiered on HBO in the USA and broadcast on BBC Two later in the year. An official statement on RollingStones.com reads:

"With never-before-seen footage and fresh insights from the band themselves, the film will delight, shock and amaze longtime devotees, as well as another generation of fans, with its uniquely immersive style and tone. Crossfire Hurricane places the viewer right on the frontline of the band’s most legendary escapades.

Taking its title from a lyric in "Jumping Jack Flash", Crossfire Hurricane gives the audience an intimate insight, for the first time, into exactly what it's like to be part of the Rolling Stones, as they overcame denunciation, drugs, dissensions and death to become the definitive survivors. It's the backstage pass to outdo them all."

The film also includes contemporary interviews with Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts, Ronnie Wood and former Stones Bill Wyman and Mick Taylor, as well as period interviews, extensive live performance material and news archive footage.

Director Brett Morgen adds: "Crossfire Hurricane invites the audience to experience firsthand the Stones' nearly mythical journey from outsiders to rock and roll royalty. This is not an academic history lesson. Crossfire Hurricane allows the viewer to experience the Stones' journey from a unique vantage point. It's an aural and visual roller coaster ride."
