Abramorama will release the film theatrically in the United States on more than 135 screens on October 15, 2015, followed by an exclusive VimeoOn Demand release the next day, October 16th.  On November 11, 2015 the film will be released in theaters in multiple countries around the globe including Australia, Canada, Czech Republic, Germany, Italy, Japan, Latvia, Mexico, New Zealand, Russia, Spain, United Kingdom and Uruguay. On November 13th, the film will be available for purchase digitally and on DVD via Reprise Records.

Locations and ticket information for the theatrical event screening in major cinemas around the country including at the Landmark Sunshine Cinema in New York City and ArcLight Cinerama Dome in Hollywood, as well as at many Harkins Theatres, Landmark Theatres, Marcus Theatres, National Amusements and Wehrenberg Theatres, is available on

“We can’t believe this was shot over a decade ago. Little did we know that this was only the beginning of the adventure this record would go on to be,” said Billie Joe Armstrong. “We are stoked for our fans to see this footage for the first time and watch us try and figure it all out.”

Captured on film by director John Roecker, Heart Like a Hand Grenade is considered by many to be a “lost film”. More than 10 years after the release of American Idiot, the 2015 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Inductees present this time capsule rock doc that takes us inside the songwriting and recording process of their Grammy Award-winning punk rock opera.  American Idiot achieved Multi-Platinum status worldwide and became a hugely successful Broadway show.  Looking back on the band in the studio is both nostalgic and insightful-the band knew they had something good, but even they didn’t know how good. 

Karol Martesko-Fenster and Evan Saxon, added on behalf of Abramorama, “We are pleased to be working directly with Green Day, and collaborating with our partners on rolling out this superb film directed by John Roecker to the many loyal fans who have been waiting for more than a decade to experience the thrill of the making of the game changing American Idiot.”

NO REST FOR THE WEEKEND is #4 in a 4 part series revealing the nuts and bolts of the filmmaking process featuring exclusive interviews with the cast and crew of BTRP’s 16mm short, The Last Hit, and was directed by one of the film’s producers, Patrick Reis.

The BTRP cast and crew battle the heat to get the shot and discuss the perks and pitfalls of shooting on film. You’ll see how the climactic scene was filmed, and in an interview with Sound Designer/Composer Christopher Gillard you’ll learn how the sound scape of The Last Hit was created.

“We made The Last Hit with four rolls of film left over from 1999. We had only 11 minutes of film and we didn’t know if we’d get an image, so we thought it would be great if we could document the challenge of making a movie with those limitations,” explains Creative Director Jason Godbey. ”Patrick has an extensive background in documentary filmmaking, so we knew he was the right guy to capture the behind the scenes footage and interviews.”

Previously they have produced narrative and documentary series including: Artist Profiles, Watch This Film, and The Jessica Project.
