The first teaser for “Beastie Boys Story” has been unveiled on Apple TV+’s YouTube channel. Directed by Spike Jonze, the documentary was co-written by Mike D and Ad-Rock, otherwise known as Mike Diamond and Adam Horovitz.

“Beastie Boys Story” will be released in IMAX theaters on April 3, before being made available on the Apple TV+ streaming platform on April 24.


The director of “Her” and “Being John Malkovich” has a long history of collaborating with the Brooklyn trio, which dates back to the videos for “Sure Shot” and “Sabotage” in 1994.


In the documentary, Diamond and Horovitz pay homage to the co-founder and bassist of the group, Adam “MCA” Yauch, who died following a three-year battle with cancer in May 2012. IB/RGA
