For all the music lovers out there, Bob Dylan has been a very important part of their lives indeed. And when it was confirmed that none other than Martin Scorsese will helm the documentary on the legend, it just got better.
And now, the wait is almost over as the release date of the film has been confirmed. According to a report in Variety, Rolling Thunder Revue: A Bob Dylan Story will be releasing on June 12 on Netflix.
Concurrent with the streaming release, the film is being booked into awards-qualifying theatrical engagements in New York and Los Angeles. The Thunder will roll into other cities as well. The night before the official release, Netflix has one-time “road show” theatrical showings set for 20 cities.
A confirmation has also arrived about the much-rumored release of a CD box set of material from the 1975 Rolling Thunder Revue tour and rehearsals, with a 14-disc, 148-track collection due from Sony on June 7.
Netflix hasn’t released many details about the content of the film, other than the previously issued logline, which says that the film “captures the troubled spirit of America in 1975 and the joyous music that Dylan performed during the fall of that year” and describes it as “part documentary, part concert film, part fever dream.”
