“Rush – Time Stands Still” Theatrical Release
Rush – Time Stands Still opens November 3 for a week-long run across Canada at Cineplex and Landmark Theatres. For any Canadian, no matter what age or musical taste, Rush is a Canadian legend. Yes, other bands are out there that may carry similar weight, such at BTO, Steppenwolf, Neil Young, and Tragically Hip, but none were so dedicated and had such a worldwide following as Rush.
In 2015, Rush went out for a 40th anniversary tour. At the time the R40 tour was rumoured to be their last tour – an end to Rush’s life on the road together. “Rush | Time Stand Still”, narrated by Paul Rudd, follows this farewell journey. Exclusive behind-the-scenes access to the band and crew throughout the tour provide the raw and vivid emotional undertones of this feature-length film. At its core are Rush’s devoted fans, and their undying devotion and quirky sense of ownership are on full display as the R40 tour comes to a crescendo at the “Fabulous” Forum in Los Angeles. Personal stories highlight the importance Rush holds in their lives and the lasting impressions of their extensive catalog. For Rush, they are quick to acknowledge the role their fans have played in their success, which makes the reality that this might be the last so difficult. Candid interviews with Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson, and Neil Peart bring “Rush | Time Stand Still” to an emotional conclusion for a band who built their career the old-fashioned way; one show at a time.
In addition to the documentary, fans will also get first viewing exclusive extras including Rush | A Salute to Kings – a 20-minute in-depth discussion with Gene Simmons (KISS), Chad Smith (Red Hot Chili Peppers), Taylor Hawkins (Foo Fighters), Ann & Nancy Wilson (Heart), Scott Gorham (Thin Lizzy), and the band’s producer Nick Raskulinecz as they share their unique stories about Rush over the last 40 years.
