By Best Classic Bands Staff | HBO Documentary Films has released the first teaser trailer for The Bee Gees: How Can You Mend a Broken Heart, the feature length documentary, about the legendary group. The film chronicles the rise of the iconic trio, consisting of brothers Barry, Maurice and Robin Gibb, their music aand its evolution over the years. It will debut on HBO on Dec. 12 and will also be available to stream on HBO Max. Watch the teaser clip below, which was released on Oct. 29.

The film takes its title from the group’s 1971 single, their first to reach #1 in the U.S. The Brothers Gibb went on to earn another eight chart-toppers in the U.S., including six in a row in the late ’70s, including such classic hits as “Stayin’ Alive” and “Night Fever” from the Saturday Night Fever soundtrack.

The phenomenal statistics only start there. In the U.S. they achieved 15 Top 10 singles and 24 that reached the Top 20.

The Bee Gees: How Can You Mend a Broken Heart is directed by Academy Award nominated filmmaker Frank Marshall (The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Seabiscuit), and was an official selection for the 2020 Telluride Film Festival. Marshall also produced alongside Nigel Sinclair and Jeanne Elfant Festa, part of the award-winning team behind HBO’s The Apollo and producers of The Beatles: Eight Days a Week and HBO’s George Harrison: Living in the Material World, and Mark Monroe.

“Like so many people, I’ve loved the Bee Gees’ music all my life,” said Marshall in the Sept. 24 announcement. “But discovering their uncanny creative instincts and the treasure trove of music, their humor, and loyalty was a great two-year journey.”

A full trailer for the film has not yet been released.
