Like all of YEAH!’s curated movies,, This Is Spinal Tap – The Special Features Version is designed for the interactivity-driven era made possible by the iPad, a new platform for film fans which recently earned AMC Networks’ groundbreaking app a spot on Entertainment Weekly’s Must List.
The new edition features interviews and exclusive commentary from Rob Reiner and Fred Willard as well as Jack Black, AC/DC’s Brian Johnson, , Rob Zombie, Meatloaf, Dave Navarro, Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine, Billy Corgan, Pearl Jam’s Mike McCready and Andrew W.K. There’s also hundreds of bits of trivia, interactive quizzes, polls and more included on the screen, a click away on the lower third of the screen as you watch the movie.
“At first, nobody got it,” director Rob Reiner tells YEAH! in the lengthy video interview that’s the centerpiece of YEAH’s 30thAnniversary Special Features Version of his classic. “People said ‘why would you make a movie about a band nobody ever heard about, a band that’s so bad?’ … Now it’s become a part of the National Film Registry.”
This complimentary “100% No Cost!” movie will be available to all iPad users, and for online viewing at www.yeahtv.com/spinaltap through April 11, 2014.
