“I’d Rather Be An Anarchist Than A Professional”

Showtime has premiered an official trailer for the upcoming documentary film titled Belushi, from filmmaker R.J. Cutler.

The film takes a look back at the life of comedy legend John Belushi through the eyes of his friends, family and collaborators.

Here it is –

Using previously unheard audiotapes recorded shortly after his death, the doc examines the too-short life of once-in-a-generation talent who captured the hearts and funny bones of devoted audiences. From National Lampoon’s Lemmings and Radio Hour to one of the founding cast members on Saturday Night Live, his insatiable drive kept the candle burning at both ends.

The comedian simultaneously appeared on SNL each Saturday night while filming Animal House and forming a band, The Blues Brothers.

The film mixes archival footage with never-before-heard audiotapes and interviews with friends and family, such as Dan Aykroyd, Jim Belushi, Penny Marshall, Lorne Michaels, Carrie Fisher, Chevy Chase, Harold Ramis, Jane Curtin, Ivan Reitman and Judy Belushi.

Belushi is premiering at the Chicago Film Festival, then will be available to view on Showtime later this fall.
