Oh, come on. Wasn't the play enough? I mean, I like the album and band just as much as the next guy, but wasn't the massive success of the album and Broadway musical enough to get the point across? I guess it's all about making money though, which is a bummer.

Thought this was that AI documentary on first glance. Wanted to see that for ages.

Could be good, could be awful. Wait and see.

I don't know how I feel about this. Is it really necessary to make a film?

isn't Tom Hanks an actor? sure this could be shitty lol. devils advocate.

for some reason, when I try to picture an American Idiot movie, I think of that movie Suburbia with Giovanni Ribisi... just like setting-wise haha.

To be fair, they were talking about doing an AI movie before the play even happened.

Plus this way I might actually be able to see the stupid fucking thing.
