The new Chemical Brothers movie Don't Think builds on the Chemical Brothers Further tour from last year, laying out the live Chemical Brothers spectacle in what looks like a colorful explosion of sound. “This film is the closest I will ever get to being at a Chemical Brothers show… and yeah, it's a beautiful experience,” said Ed Simons.
Don’t Think comes from the Chemical Brothers appearance at the Fujirock Festival in Japan and was filmed by a camera crew of 20 people and captured in Dolby 7:1, surround sound. On Jan. 26, the movie debuted in theaters in 20 cities across the globe, including Chicago, New York, Los Angeles in the U.S.; Europe gets London, Milan, Berlin Amsterdam and more. Starting this week on Wednesday, Feb. 1, Don’t Think rolls out in over 500 theatres around the world, check out a full list of Don't Think screenings. Tickets will be limited, so anyone who wants better move fast.
“In the recording of a single show - a single night on a Japanese mountainside - Adam Smith, our long time collaborator, has managed to capture the atmosphere of a very special festival appearance. Come see how it feels to feel, be overwhelmed, intoxicated, swoonerated… Surrender to the void,” said Tom Rowlands. There's no mention yet of a Chemical Brothers Don't Think DVD, but it's hard to imagine this only happening in movie theatres. It's also easy to imagine Don't Think as a major film festival attraction for 2012, or playing at music festivals that also have film festivals, like the SXSW Music Festival.
