Western Stars Trailer Previews the Bruce Springsteen Film

-

After playing with Blinded by the Light in theaters this weekend, Warner Bros. Pictures has brought online the Western Stars trailer. Western Stars is a cinematic film version of Bruce Springsteen’s latest album (buy here). Longtime collaborator Thom Zimny directs together with Springsteen in his directorial debut. Western Stars, which will make its world premiere at the 2019 Toronto International Film Festival, is slated for release this fall.

Springsteen’s first studio album in five years, Western Stars marks a departure for the legendary singer/songwriter while still drawing on his roots. Touching on themes of love and loss, loneliness and family and the inexorable passage of time, the documentary film evokes the American West — both the mythic and the hardscrabble — weaving archival footage and Springsteen’s personal narration with song to tell the story of Western Stars.

Western Stars offers fans the world over their only opportunity to see Springsteen perform all 13 songs on the album, backed up by a band and a full orchestra, under the cathedral ceiling of his historic nearly 100-year-old barn.

Springsteen’s 19th studio album has achieved global success. It has been #1 on the iTunes charts on every continent, including such countries as the U.S., the UK, Belgium, Germany, Spain, Italy, the Netherlands, Australia, India, South Africa, and all of Scandinavia, among other countries.

Springsteen and Zimny, who together helmed Western Stars, have collaborated on several projects over the years, including the documentary The Promise: The Making of Darkness on the Edge of Town, and the Netflix filmed version of the Tony Award-winning Springsteen on Broadway, which Zimny directed.

Western Stars is written and performed by Bruce Springsteen, with special guest Patti Scialfa. Thom Zimny, Jon Landau, Barbara Carr and George Travis produced the film, with Springsteen serving as executive producer. The original score is by Springsteen.
