The film, which tells the story of the Gallagher-led Britpop icons in their own words from their inception through to their legendary Knebworth gigs in 1996, will be shown over the Christmas period on BBC Two at 10pm on Wednesday December 27.
Reviewing ‘Supersonic‘, NME concluded: “The film hinges on the brothers’ arrogance: “You start a band with the intention of trying to get a telly and a fit bird,” drawls Noel, but they couldn’t have acted like that without the sheer talent that seeps out of every shot of Supersonic. If you weren’t craving an Oasis reunion before, then this will have you begging for it. “
Speaking to NME about a potential sequel to ‘Supersonic‘, director Mat Whitecross told NME: “It’s just something that Liam said off the cuff. I remember when he came in for the interviews, he said, ‘why we stopping here? I’m enjoying it lets keep going!’ If they were up for it I would love that. Something I found challenging and engaging about trying to do just two and a half years was even then we felt we’d bitten off more then we can chew.
“In some ways, I guess the danger is that as a band becomes bigger, the stories become better known. As a lifelong fan though, I feel there’s definitely another film in there.”
