For U.S. fans, the U2 documentary “From the Sky Down” doesn’t premiere until this coming weekend — it’s on Showtime on Saturday night — but since it already aired in the U.K., intrepid fans like u2opia100 have uploaded the 84-minute documentary about the making of Achtung Baby to YouTube, and you can watch it in the playlist above.
The film — directed by Oscar-winner Davis Guggenheim (“An Inconvenient Truth”), who previously worked with The Edge in the guitar-hero doc “It Might Get Loud” — also appears on the expanded reissue of the Irish band’s classic 1991 album, due out next week.
