Trailer for "Made in America" Documentary

Made in America, the concert film/music documentary featuring Jay-Z, Janelle Monae, Pearl Jam, Run DMC, Skrillex, and Kanye West, will soon arrive in theaters on July 11 and will be available on demand on July 22. The documentary comes from Phase 4 Films and is directed by Ron Howard.

According to a press release from Phase 4, Made in America will celebrate “both the unifying power of music and the American Dream.” The documentary will contain performances and interviews from musicians from a diverse mix of genres from Rock to Hip-Hop to Pop as they describe what drives them to perform and share their music with the world. The trailer primarily focuses on the musicians’ enthusiasm as they prepare to share a stage full of superstars. Jay-Z, the curator and headliner of the inaugural Made In America Festival in 2012, headlines the documentary as well though several other performers will make appearances.

Along with his Oscar winning film A Beautiful Mind and the more recent Rush, Howard’s directing credits also include Apollo 13 and Frost/Nixon.

of all the directors

I almost decided to go this year, tickets are only $90 before the line up is released and you're usually getting much more than you paid for. I went to gov ball instead bc the music is more my style, but this festival seems pretty sick.

How was the gov ball? I wish I went :(
The Gov Ball had all of my favorite bands spread out on the 3 days. *sigh*

I'll probably watch it ngl but why does it look like there's so much Rita Ora? No matter how hard everybody tries she will never be a thing. Just stop.

the 'american dream' is unachievable.

Really? Ron Howard? Of all the people to do this they hired Ron Howard? Why?

i watched this (or the first one? idk)a few weeks ago, and it was so full of "i did this, i did that" pretentious crap.

I will never understand why PJ was in this thing to begin with. EV must have been high when he signed the contract. I love hip hop and all, but the corporate sponsor of this festival, does not match what PJ stands for.

Such a cash in festival, I mean more than the usual ones
