Wow! It’s been half a century since The Rolling Stones have been around! To mark the anniversary, the greatest rock band in the world will release a brand new, 150 minutes long documentary titled “Crossfire Hurricane” on October 18 2012. The documentary is directed by Brett Morgen, director of the acclaimed documentaries ‘Chicago 10′ and ‘The Kid Stays in the Picture’.

‘Crossfire Hurricane’ will feature mostly previously unseen vintage footage, following the band’s rise from the outsiders to one of the greatest bands in the history of rock music. The documentary focuses on the key moment in the history of the Rolling Stones, starting from the band’s formation and the small gigs in the early 1960s, via the release of 1972’s historical ‘Exile On Main Street LP’, massive stadium concerts of the 1980s and the 1990s, right up to present time.

Besides the archive footage, portions of live and TV appearances, ‘Crossfire Hurricane’ also includes both old and new interviews with Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts, Ronnie Wood and former Stones Bill Wyman and Mick Taylor, as well as rare interviews and footage of the late Brian Jones.

According to the director Brett Morgen: “Crossfire Hurricane invites the audience to experience firsthand the Stones’ nearly mythical journey from outsiders to rock and roll royalty. This is not an academic history lesson. Crossfire Hurricane allows the viewer to experience the Stones’ journey from a unique vantage point. It’s an aural and visual rollercoaster ride.”

‘Crossfire Hurricane’  will have a simultaneous premiere in over 250 theaters all over the world. The event will be broadcast live via satellite on October 18  from the 2012 London Film Festival in London’s Leicester Square.

Until then, the fans of Rolling Stones may have a glimpse into what the new documentary feature has to offer in the official trailer released last week:
