Supersonic is a 122 minute glimpse into Oasis' rise to mega stardom packed with spectacular archival footage and commentary/narration by the band. Director Mat Whitecross had the arduous task of trying to figure out how to get Liam and Noel Gallagher to get together and tell him their story. As it turns out, Whitecross reveals he had to interview the Brothers Gallagher separately, then edit the footage to make it appear as if Liam and Noel were in the same room. Though that might sound cringeworthy, it seems like Whitecross pulled it off -- check out the amazing trailer for Supersonic below:
Meanwhile, Oasis pushed back the release date for Be Here Now - Chasing The Sun: 1993 - 1997 one week to October 14th. The release is available to pre-order here.
