u2 doc from the sky down Video: Trailer for U2 doc From The Sky Down

When we commented that the upcoming U2 documentary From The Sky Down would be immensely better than Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark, it started as a simple joke (kinda like the show itself! Zing!) But after watching the trailer, it turns out we were totally right. The David Guggenheim-directed exploration of the band’s iconic 1991 album Achtung Baby looks to be an emotional, insightful, and comical look at the in’s and out’s of that groundbreaking record. It also paints the band as a slightly more real, down-to-earth act, even when they’re being turned into cartoons. Check the trailer out below.

Showtime will air the full documentary on October 29th at 8/9 p.m. CDT. In other U2 news, the 20 Years of Achtung Baby reissues will be available on October 31st, with the star-studded Achtung Baby reimagings album slated for release sometime this year.

Sweet. They need to do all of this for Zooropa too! For realz. For as much shit as U2 gets these days (and pretty much deserves) they will always be in my good books. When you grow up with War, Unforgetable Fire, Joshua Tree, Achtung Baby, and Zooropa you pretty much give them a free pass on many a thing. Kinda like R.E.M from ’95 until the release of the amazing Collapse Into Now. I totally under stand how anyone who didn’t grow up with this music (or did grow up with their mid 90’s to now outputs and personalities), or who didn’t actually have a household blasting these band’s tunes durring the 80’s and early 90’s will have a hard time understanding how all of these guys were the coolest thing pop had seen and that they were sort of like the Radioheads of their time. Had to of been there possibly.
