HBO Shares Trailer For David Byrne’s ‘American Utopia’

HBO has shared a new trailer for the film version of David Byrne‘s critically acclaimed Broadway show, American Utopia.

The Spike Lee-directed adaption of American Utopia will premiere on HBO on Saturday, October 17th at 8:00-9:45 p.m. ET/PT. It will also be available on HBO Max.

The American Utopia stage play featured the Talking Heads frontman and 11 musical artists from around the world performing songs from the 2018 album American Utopia, as well as songs from Byrne’s Talking Heads and solo catalog. The play ran from October 2019 to February 2020 on Broadway.

“What if we eliminate everything from the stage except the stuff we care about the most?” Byrne asks the audience in one scene in the trailer. “Without cables or wires, what would be left? Well, it would be us, and you. And that’s what this show is.”

The new trailer follows a one-minute teaser that was shared last month.

Spike Lee said in a statement, “It is my honor and privilege that my art brother, Mr. David Byrne, asked me to join him in concert, to invite me into his magnificent world of American Utopia.”

“Spike and I have crossed paths many times over the years, obviously I’m a huge fan, and now finally here was an opportunity for us to work together,” Byrne added. “I am absolutely thrilled with the result.”
