'It Might Get Loud', starring Edge, Jimmy Page and Jack White is set for theatrical release in the UK and Ireland - and DVD release in North America.
The critically acclaimed 'rockumentary', directed by David Guggenheim (The Inconvenient Truth) will open in early January in Ireland and the UK - with a London premiere on December 15th. The film brings together Edge, Jimmy Page and Jack White to share their passion for the electric guitar and revolves around a day when the three guitarists first met and sat down together to share their stories, teach and play. 'Discover Jimmy Page's first appearance on TV as a skiffle-playing adolescent. Revisit the humble venue for U2's first gig - a playground ledge in Dublin. And learn how to make an electric guitar, Jack White-style, with a piece of old wood and some rusty nails.'
The film opened to great reviews in the US. 'In nearly every moment, an incredibly rich mix of their music, groundbreaking, defining, which alone would be almost enough,' said the LA Times. 'That it comes with a righteous story too is a lovely bonus.'
