Coldplay Sets Amazon Doc 'Head Full of Dreams'
The in-depth and intimate portrait of the British band's rise will be streaming exclusively on Amazon Prime starting Nov. 16, which will be preceded by a one-night-only showing in theaters.
Coldplay is getting the documentary treatment, and it's landing on Amazon in a month.
A Head Full of Dreams, announced Friday, has been billed as an in-depth and intimate portrait of the British band's rise, from starting some 20 years ago in the pubs of London to selling out stadiums worldwide.
The film will be available to stream exclusively on Amazon Prime Video in the U.K., U.S., Australia and New Zealand on Nov. 16, with local language versions available globally soon after. Preceding the SVOD launch, Trafalgar Releasing will be giving the film a special one-night showing in 2,000 theaters around the world Nov. 14.
A Head Full of Dreams was directed by Mat Whitecross — helmer of the acclaimed 2016 documentary Supersonic — who met the four friends at college in London before they’d even formed the band. From the very first rehearsal in a cramped student bedroom, Whitecross has been there to capture the music and the relationships on tape.
Whitecross has since directed many of the band’s videos (including for "Paradise," "A Sky Full of Stars" and "Adventure of a Lifetime") and continued to document the band’s musical and personal evolution.
