A new trailer has dropped for “Billie Eilish: The World’s A Little Blurry,” a new documentary about the “Bad Guy” singer and songwriter, which will premiere in theaters and on Apple TV Plus in February 2021.
The film is directed by award-winning filmmaker R.J. Cutler, who previously turned his camera on the worlds of high fashion (“The September Issue”) and politics (“The War Room”). While Eilish is just 18 years old, the film has been in the works for several years: While embedded with the singer’s tour in October of 2019, a Variety reporter witnessed a film crew following the singer virtually everywhere, and was told the crew was working on an unspecified “documentary that hasn’t been announced yet”; reports of the Apple TV deal began to emerge last December. A source said the crew had been following Eilish for many months, possibly as far back as 2016.
Eilish’s debut album “When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?” was released in 2019, going on to become the best-performing album of the year. It also swept the Grammys, picking up awards for Best New Artist, Album of the Year, Record of the Year, Song of the Year, and Best Pop Vocal Album. She is up for four 2021 Grammys, three for her song “All I Ever Wanted,” and one for her theme from the still-unreleased James Bond film of the same name, “No Time to Die.”
“Billie Eilish: The World’s A Little Blurry” is produced by Apple Original Films, in association with Interscope Films, the Darkroom, This Machine and Lighthouse Management & Media.
