Redemption Film: “Marley” Trailer + Poster Art

February 20, 2012

Words by Jesse Serwerโ€”

Talk of Academy Award-winning director Kevin MacDonald’s Marley documentary has been building for while, and it even had its premiere earlier this month in Berlin. But with its North American premiere, at South by Southwest in Austin, just weeks away on March 11, only now has a trailer and poster art for the film emerged. The two-minute clip for Marleyโ€”which, while certainly not the first documentary on Bob Marley’s life, is the first to get the Marley family’s full supportโ€”promises that the movie will contain previously unheard tracks and never-before-seen footage, while teasing interviews with the usual suspects: Bunny Wailer, Chris Blackwell, Rita Marley, Ziggy. Pretty straightforward. Marley hits theaters on 4/20, ’cause what date would be more appropriate.
