Here’s more from the press release: “Published and in celebration of Pearl Jam’s twentieth anniversary and in conjunction with Cameron Crowe‘s definitive documentary film and soundtrack of the same name, Pearl Jam Twenty is an aesthetically stunning and definitive chronicle of their two decades as a band.”
The video embedded above features the trailer for HBO’s Bobby Fischer Against The World. We reported earlier on the books Bobby Fischer and Living in the Material World: George Harrison; the accompanying films will be available later this year.
Filmmaker Mary McDonagh Murphy recently released her Harper Lee documentary, Hey, Boo: Harper Lee and To Kill a Mockingbird. She published her title Scout, Atticus, and Boo: A Celebration of Fifty Years of To Kill a Mockingbird in 2010 just in time for the book’s 50th anniversary.
