Blur: New World Towers is marketed as “a vital hybrid performance film about Blur.” Directed by Sam Wrench, the film stitches together clips from two gigs last summer at London’s Hyde Park and Hong Kong’s Convention And Exposition Centre along with background about the “unfinished business” that spurred on Blur’s comeback album The Magic Whip. It’s not to be confused with the 30-minute Magic Whip documentary Blur released earlier this year. New World Towers will screen 12/2 in the UK, with an international release to follow. Judging from our recent live review and Blur’s Fallon performance — and the obvious fact that Blur are one of the greatest bands of our lifetime — this film will probably be quite entertaining. Watch the trailer below.
