An official trailer has dropped for the hotly-anticipated documentary, Billie Eilish: The World’s A Little Blurry. Directed by award-winning filmmaker R.J. Cutler (The War Room, The September Issue, Nashville) the film premieres globally on Apple TV+ on February 26, 2021, with a theatrical release to follow.
Described as a coming-of-age story, the film promises a deeply intimate look at Eilish, as it chronicles the singer-songwriter and her meteoric rise to global stardom. The trailer includes clips of Eilish as a young child, plus plenty of behind-the-scenes moments, as the teenager navigates a whirlwind life on the road, on stage, and at home with her family, while writing, recording, and releasing her landmark debut, When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?
At one point, Eilish is shown on stage, urging fans to live in the moment. “In life we tend to do things and then we’re always looking forward to the next thing. We’re never thinking about what’s happening right now.” From the looks of it, Eilish is savoring her incredible journey as it happens.
The trailer also highlights some of Eilish’s accomplishments at the time of filming – which are incredible feats for any artist, let alone a 17-year-old. These include 141 nominations, 55 billion streams, and 19 songs on the Billboard Hot 100.
Now 18, Eilish is currently up for four awards at the upcoming 2021 Grammys, including Best Pop Solo Performance, Song of the Year, and Record of the Year (for “Everything I Wanted”). Eilish’s James Bond theme, “No Time to Die” is also up for Best Song Written for Visual Media.
Eilish is capping off the year with another major accomplishment – her 2019 video for “Bad Guy” hit the one billion view mark. The singer-songwriter is in good company, joining an elite club that includes such legendary artists as Guns N’ Roses (“November Rain”), Queen (“Bohemian Rhapsody”), Nirvana (“Smells Like Teen Spirit”), and the Cranberries (“Zombie”).
