Has someone already called 2015 the year of the documentary yet? If not, I'm just going to go ahead and claim it. With Amy, What Happened With Miss Simone?, and He Named Me Malala alone this year, documentaries may finally be going mainstream. Next up? I AM CHRIS FARLEY, a documentary on--you guessed it--the late comedian Chris Farley. While I can't say I was the biggest Farley fanatic, mainly because I just didn't enjoy his brand of humor, I know a lot of revered comedians today still look up to him and reference him in interviews. In fact, a few of them are featured in this documentary, such as Adam Sandler, Christina Applegate, and Dan Akroyd.
The documentary is described as the "definitive biographical film" about the star, and also includes interviews with Mike Myers, Molly Shannon, David Spade, and many others.
Watch the trailer:
I AM CHRIS FARLEY will open theatrically New York and Los Angeles on July 31st, 2015. The film will be available nationwide on VOD and across all digital platforms on August 11th.
