Chemical Brothers Movie ‘Don’t Think’ Gets a Trailer That Erases Your Brain

Dozens of filmmakers have utilized music from The Chemical Brothers (Tom Rowlands and Ed Simons) for their movies, and the eclectic rave staple even snagged their first gig as film composers for last year’s Hanna and as contributors for Black Swan, but now they’re the subject of a concert doc that looks as fascinating visually as it does aurally.

Don’t Think comes from director Adam Smith, who stole a page from The Beastie Boys’ Awesome; I Fuckin’ Shot That! to include both professional camera rig shots and personal cell phone footage of the tranced-out crowd – which seems fitting considering The Chemical Brothers (then, The Dust Brothers) got their start working with The Beastie Boys.

Stuff a pacifier in your mouth and check out the trailer for yourself:

Yes. All day long yes. And all night long to be sure. According to The Creators Project, the footage was shot at the Fuji Rock Festival in Japan, but it might as well have been Mars. Capturing the transformative nature of live music can be a tough task, but even the teaser seems to be able to shift a few brain cells over. At any rate, it’ll make a hell of a double feature with Justin Bieber’s Never Say Never.

The movie will be in 500 theaters worldwide starting February 1st.
