Arguably Manchester’s most prolific rock band, Oasis, are the subject for a new documentary titled ‘Supersonic’, which has now been confirmed to be released and hitting cinemas across the UK this October.
The forthcoming documentary was produced by the team who worked on the Academy Award-winning Amy Winehouse documentary, ‘Amy’ – James Gay Rees and Asif Kapadia – and The Road To Guantanamo director Mat Whitecross will direct the feature.
A poster for the documentary can be seen below:
‘Supersonic’ will reportedly begin the story of Oasis on the day when Noel Gallagher first joined his brother Liam‘s band in Manchester back in 1991, and follow-up through to the band’s final tour in 2008 and split in 2009, for which the film makers have reportedly been given “unprecedented” access to the band and their archival collection, including previously unseen footage.
Founding member Liam Gallagher recently posted a tweet following watching an early edit of the documentary:
