Watch: Trailer For 'This Is England' Director Shane Meadows' Music Doc 'The Stone Roses: Made of Stone'

Shane Meadows hasn’t made a feature film since 2009, and even then his last two efforts were both relatively minor key. “Le Donk & Scor-zay-zee” was a largely improvised mockumentary and comedy vehicle for his pal Paddy Considine, while “Somers Town” was a short (71 mins) but sweet way for Meadows to tell a story outside of his East Midlands comfort zone. In the interim he’s brought two mini-series to the small screen with “This is England ‘86” and “This is England ’88,” but now he’s back in the filmmaking business and the first trailer has dropped for the documentary, “The Stone Roses: Made of Stone.”

The Stone Roses: Made Of Stone
Shane Meadows hasn’t made a feature film since 2009, and even then his last two efforts were both relatively minor key. “Le Donk & Scor-zay-zee” was a largely improvised mockumentary and comedy vehicle for his pal Paddy Considine, while “Somers Town” was a short (71 mins) but sweet way for Meadows to tell a story outside of his East Midlands comfort zone. In the interim he’s brought two mini-series to the small screen with “This is England ‘86” and “This is England ’88,” but now he’s back in the filmmaking business and the first trailer has dropped for the documentary, “The Stone Roses: Made of Stone.”

It tells the story of “a resurrection nobody thought possible” that took place last year in Manchester, England. “It’s not very often one of your heroes asks you to make a documentary about your all-time favorite band getting back together after 20 years,” says Meadows in the trailer. And he’s right, it’s not. We imagine a lot of British filmmakers would have killed for this gig, but based on what we can see in this trailer it looks like Meadows was the perfect man for the job.

Even though it’s a documentary, Meadows' filmmaking style is immediately recognizable in the trailer, and it almost goes without saying that he’s been granted some truly incredible access in making this film. For fans of the band this is probably going to be nirvana, but for anyone else it looks like a great way to get to know the band. The film’s premiering in Manchester (naturally) before going on release in the U.K. on June 5th. Hopefully there’s a market for this around the world, too. [Flicks And Bits]
