Movie of the Day for Wednesday, July 16, 2008

Adapted from the 2006 autobiography from guitarist Andy Summers, One Train Later is a documentary about his band, The Police.
The book details the life of the band, active from 1977-1984, where Summers, lead singer Sting and drummer Stuart Copeland went from struggling musicians to one of the world's biggest bands in five albums, culminating in 1983 with their only U.S. #1 hit, Every Breath You Take. All the sex, drugs and rock and roll that were involved in those years are certainly included.
It's unknown how much of this will be archival footage of the band in their heyday, but we're figuring there will be a good deal of coverage of the band's official reunion and subsequent tour that began in 2007.
If they sell it as a concert film, that could sucker a few people into see this, but otherwise, as a documentary that pretty much only serves as video history of the band, if anyone is hoping for more than a million or two, they're going to be sorely disappointed. (Tim Briody/BOP)
