Now the official trailer for the film has been released and can be watched below.

Along with live footage from the tour, Cinema Strangiato will feature previously unreleased backstage clips and soundcheck performance shots, along with new interviews with Tom Morello, Bill Corgan, Taylor Hawkins, producer Nick Raskulinecz, Losing It violinist Jonathan Dinklage and more.

The film will also include a section titled Falling Down The Rabbit Hole which takes a closer look at the making of Geddy Lee’s Big Beautiful Book of Bass.

Lee said: “I’m excited for fans to see some new clips from our R40 tour but also a peek behind the scenes of making the Big Beautiful Book Of Bass
