CooperEagle Rock Entertainment, in association with Banger Films, has announced the world premiere of “Super Duper Alice Cooper” at the 2014 Tribeca Film Festival [TFF], presented by AT&T, where it will screen as part of their Spotlight section. Taking us through his life and career, Alice presents his story in the first ever “doc opera” film — a dizzying blend of documentary archive footage, animation, and rock opera.

“Super Duper Alice Cooper” is the twisted tale of a teenage Dr. Jekyll whose rock ‘n’ roll Mr. Hyde almost kills him. It is the story of Vincent Furnier, a preacher’s son who struck fear into the hearts of parents as Alice Cooper, the ultimate rock star of the bizarre. From the advent of Alice as frontman for a group of Phoenix freaks in the ’60s to the hazy decadence of celebrity in the ’70s to his triumphant comeback as ’80s glam metal godfather, we will watch as Alice and Vincent battle for each other’s souls. Alice‘s story is told not only by the man himself, but through exclusive interviews with members of the original Alice Cooper band, Elton John, Iggy Pop, John Lydon and Dee Snider.

“Super Duper Alice Cooper” is the creation of Scot McFadyen and Sam Dunn at Banger Films, producers of “Iron Maiden: Flight 666” [2009 SXSW Audience Choice Winner] and “Rush: Beyond The Lighted Stage” [2010 Grammy-nominated and Tribeca Audience Choice Winner], and much-lauded filmmaker Reginald Harkema, winner of the TIFF Special Jury Prize for his film “Monkey Warfare”.

The 13th edition of the Tribeca Film Festival will take place from April 16 to April 27 at locations around New York City.

In a 2012 interview with Spinner.comDunn stated about the Cooper documentary: “We know Alice through various projects that we’ve done. We interviewed Alice for ‘Headbanger’s Journey’. He’s also featured pretty prominently in two episodes of [the new groundbreaking documentary series] ‘Metal Evolution’, both in [the] Shock Rock and Early Metal U.S. [episodes]. He’s a pretty fascinating character, who has been through a lot in his life. He’s one of those musicians that maybe he hasn’t had a hit in a long time, but everyone knows who Alice Cooper is because of his influence on pop culture and the big songs he had in the ’70s.

“We’re exploring a different stylist approach with this film. It won’t be talking heads; it’s going to be more of an archival and animated journey through his career.

“He’s such a rich visual artist, it makes so much sense to try and do it in a different way.

“I think we’re just a little bit sick of doing talking head interviews, to be honest [laughs], after doing 300 of them for ‘Metal Evolution’. So it’s really the story of Alice‘s career from the ’60s right up to the ’80s and everything he went through — the ups and the downs, battles with alcoholism, being raised in a Christian family, rebelling against that but then coming back to faith later in his career, and moving from town to town, and trying to find his place.”

Alice Cooper‘s latest album, “Welcome 2 My Nightmare”, sold 18,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 22 on The Billboard 200 chart. Cooper‘s previous CD, 2008’s “Along Came A Spider”, opened with just under 10,000 copies to land at No. 53.

Recorded with longtime collaborator Bob Ezrin, who produced the original multi-platinum “Welcome To My Nightmare” album in 1975, “Welcome 2 My Nightmare” picks up right where they left off, with Alice trapped in his own warped mind.
